4. TATOOSH - 301'8"
Over the past few years Tatoosh has been busy visiting locales around the world, such as New Zealand, France, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Mexico, the Cayman Islands, and even the good ol’ United States (though somehow our fair shores seem far less exciting in comparison to some of those countries). Considering many yacht owners, regardless of their vessel’s size, lament the fact that their yachts don’t get too much of a workout, this is impressive. But it’s even more impressive when you realize Tatoosh is just one of two yachts in our top ten that are owned by the same person, Paul Allen (see no. 2). The top deck is said to be devoted exclusively to him and his family, comprising the master suite and saloon, among other rooms. Guests, such as members of the Portland Trailblazers, the basketball team Allen owns, have been able to enjoy the other decks’ saloon, dining area, and staterooms. (There’s even a ladies’ powder room on the main deck.) The main saloon is a particularly beautiful gathering spot, featuring a French limestone fireplace. Hopefully the guests also have been treated to short cruises aboard some of the “toys” the yacht regularly totes, most notably the Hinckley powerboat that’s carried in a special cradle on one side and the sailboat that’s carefully nestled on the other. (You can see the sailboat’s mast quite well in the large photo at left and the full boat shot above.)
