Microsoft boss arrives in Dubrovnik

By  Aug 05, 2018

Summer in Dubrovnik traditionally means an influx of celebrities from all over the world and this summer it is business as usual. After the supermodel Naomi Campbell cruised in on a luxury yacht yesterday was the turn of one of the richest men in the world, Paul Allen, or at least his mega yacht.

Paul Allen (65) is an American business magnate, investor and philanthropist. He co-founded Microsoft alongside Bill Gates. In February 2018, he was estimated to be the 43rd-richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $25 billion.

His yacht, Tatoosh, at 92metres in length is the 43rd longest privately owned yacht in the world and certainly turned heads as she pulled into the Port of Dubrovnik yesterday.

Originally built for mobile phone magnate Craig McCaw, Tatoosh was built at Rendsburg in Germany by Nobiskrug and completed in June 2000. She was purchased by Paul Allen in 2001 at a reported cost of $100 million.
