The yacht of the late industrialist Paul Allen is now available for $90 million.
The late Paul Allen’s superyacht, which he co-founded with Bill Gates, has been listed for sale for an incredible $90 million.
Allen, who died in 2018 at the age of 65 after a long battle with cancer, bought the ship in 2001 for an estimated $100 million.
Tatoosh, with a breadth of 303 feet, is the world’s sixty-first largest superyacht.
It was last advertised in 2021 before being taken from the market for an 11-month refurbishment. From September 28 to October 1, Tatoosh will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show. Furthermore, it is available upon request.
According to the listing, it has two helicopter pads, large tenders, a heated swimming pool, a beach club, and a dive center, as well as a theater and an elevator serving all decks.

The listing comes with Christie’s revelation that Allen’s $1 billion art collection, which includes 150 pieces from 500 years of history, will be sold at auction.
In the interim, Allen also owned the 20th-largest ship in the world, the 414-foot-wide mega yacht Octopus. The yacht was accessible for hiring in May.

Allen co-founded Microsoft Corporation with his childhood friend, Bill Gates, in 1975. Prior to his death, Forbes listed him as the 44th richest person in the world, with a net worth of $20.3 billion.
Allen, a recluse, professed a desire for a romantic life and a family one day, but he never married or had children.
He was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, stage 1-A, in 1982 and was successfully treated with radiotherapy over several months. He was diagnosed with the same cancer again in 2009 and successfully cured.

On October 15, 2018, the tumor reappeared, leading to his death from septic shock.
“Paul loved life and those around him, and we all cherished him in return,” Gates said in a statement made public after his passing. Generations will remember his contributions to the realms of technology and philanthropy. His absence will be felt deeply.
