Tatoosh – Paul Allen’s (Microsoft) Incredible Super Yacht

Originally owned by mobile phone mogul Craig McCaw, Tatoosh was bought by Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen in 2001 for a reported cost of $100 million.

During its construction in Rendsburg in Germany, Nobiskrug was in-charge of the built until it was completed in June of 2000.

The interior was designed by Terence Tisdale, a renowned name in yacht design. It was because of the creative efforts of the design house that Tatoosh boasts a master suite and salon with a stunning French limestone fireplace. It is equally-matched by the aesthetic arrangements of the dining area, state rooms, and the ladies powder room.

Completing the amenities and luxury features of the super yacht are a 1.6 meter deep swimming pool with adjustable vertical bases, movie theater, two helipads, 40-foot Hickley powerboat, and 5 sea scooters.

Running at a top speed of 19 knots it has graced the waters of La Rochelle in south-western France; has docked at V&A Waterfront in Capetown; and also in Valletta, Malta.

One of the most talked about cruises of Tatoosh was when it was hired by Teodorín Nguema Obiang for a whooping price of £400,000 – only to entertain rap singer Eve on board for a Christmas cruise.

Flagged in the Cayman Islands, the exquisite luxury yacht can accommodate 24 guests and has 35 crew members.

At present, it takes the 38th spot on the list of the worlds largestest super yachts.

Incredible isn’t she!
