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!

Love Monaco? Now You Can Take It Everywhere You Go: For $1 Billion!

Do you love Monaco? Who doesn’t right, it’s a pretty awesome place. Well imagine this a yacht based on the streets of Monaco.

The staggering 155m Streets of Monaco yacht is expected to cost over $1.1 billion to build and is modelled on a section of Monte Carlo, Monaco.

A LAVISH new yacht recreating the billionaire’s playground of Monaco is set to become the world’s most expensive yacht.

Currently in the design stage, the super-ship will feature smaller versions of the state’s famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as swimming pools, tennis courts, a cinema, a go kart track and a Hotel de Paris.

Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platform it will have a beach.

Travellers will also spot waterfalls, a swim-in Jacuzzi-bar, helicopters and submarines on board.

The one-of a kind ship could be home to 16 guests and 70 crew with the main apartment spread over three floors and 445 sq m.

Linking upper and lower living areas is the Atrium – featuring seven guest suites, a bathroom, bedroom, dressing room, reception and balcony.

The idea for the super-boat, designed by Yacht Island Design, was sparked by car racing and developed into something more innovative.

“It is basically a floating city,” company director Rob McPherson said.

“The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the principality.

“We want to create a truly unique environment that could take the principality of Monaco to the ocean.”

The ship will exceed the $1 billion price tag reportedly paid by Roman Abramovich for his Eclipse yacht.

A second creation by Yacht Island Design will be a smaller 85-metre yacht based on a Pacific Island theme.
