Malaga Portside attraction: super-yacht, Tattoosh

0


A PRIVATE yacht moored at Malaga Port belonging to a Microsoft billionaire co-founder Paul Allen has become an attraction to locals and tourists alike.

Moored by the newly refurbished Quay 2, which leads to the Muelle Uno leisure marina, people can be seen having the photograph taken in front of the 92-metre (303 feet) Tatoosh, which is undergoing improvement works at the port.

It is perhaps hardly surprising given the sheer size of the yacht where one can see it has a 40 foot sailboat attached to one side, a helicopter on one of the five decks – it is equipped for two choppers – and what seems like a full size motor boat on the other side of it.

The Tatoosh is owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, ranked 48th in the 2012 Forbes Billionaires list, he is currently worth an estimated $14.2 billion (€10.8bn).

Allen, 59, reportedly bought the Cayman Islands-registered yacht for $100 million (€76m) from US telecommunications billionaire Craig McCaw in 2001.
