Microsoft Billionaire Paul Allen loves Luxury Yachts

Paul Allen Yacht

Paul Allen Yacht

Last week, former Microsoft boss and co-founder (with Bill Gates) Paul Allen arrived in Mombasa, Kenya on his super yacht.  Microsoft has made vast fortunes in computer software.

Paul Allen loves the luxury yacht and yachting lifestyle.  It’s an ideal way for a billionaire to spend some of his money as he can trip around the world in complete safety and privacy.

The Yacht is big enough for a floating basketball court.

In fact Paul Allen’s superyacht is an extraordinary example of a private motor yacht. OCTOPUS is a whopping 416 feet (127 m) – long enough to have secured its position as one of the world’s largest yachts in 2003 when it was launched. The luxury yacht’s is presently eighth in the list of motor yachts by length. Super yacht OCTOPUS is equipped with a music studio and a basketball court.

Philanthropy

The other way Paul Allen spends his cash is by giving it away.  Through the Paul Allen Family Foundation, he awards approximately $30 million in grants annually to organizations related to health and human services, and toward the advancement of science and technology.

Kenya

It is interesting that Kenya has been visited by several celebrities lately, not just Paul Allen. Naomi Campbell and previous boyfriend Mr Flavio Briatorre were recently sighted holidaying in the Mida Creek in Malindi, East Africa’s largest mangrove creek.  While Superman’s Dean Cain and The Last King of Scotland’s Forest Whittaker enjoyed Kenya’s internationally acclaimed game parks and stayed in the country’s capital Nairobi.

Clooney, Bono and Crawford on yachts.

Famous film actor George Clooney, U2’s Bono and the gorgeous Cindy Crawford have been vacationing on the French Riviera.  Cindy can bee seen below looking stunning swimming of the aft deck of a luxury motor yacht. Mr. Clooney can be seen ‘chilling out’ reading a newspaper with sophistication on the yacht’s deck.  The A-list crew have been spending their days swimming, jet skiing and generally being fabulous aboard the luxury yacht.

Supermodel Cindy Crawford, her husband Rande Gerber, Jerry Weintraub and George Clooney sun themselves on the superyacht in St Tropez. Cindy Crawford, 42 years old, showed off her super-model style as she soaked up the sun in a bikini at St Tropez with actor friend George Clooney.

Cindy and her husband Rande Gerber are entertaining George, who recently split up with former cocktail waitress Sarah Larson, aboard their charter yacht off the south of France. Cindy Crawford shows off her sensational figure in a tiny bikini as she cools off in the sea. Cindy showed that she is still looking sensational at the grand old age of 42 as she took a dip in the Med near the famous shores of millionaire’s playground of St Tropez.

Later this month, George will be reunited with another one of his famous buddies, Brad Pitt, who will take a break from cuddling his baby twins to promote the Coen Brothers film Burn After Reading, at the Venice Film Festival.

Following on from their St Tropez jaunt, the group of friends made a stopover by yacht to the little French village of Eze and visited U2 singer Bono’s wonderful seaside house.

The rock star Irish lead singer for super group U2 has a place which is a popular haunt for celebrities in the area and as such Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie (Brangelina) and Robert De Niro recently took their families on vacation there.

Want to know where to go to find a luxury yacht for yourself, so you can join the A list?  Well, it seems you can either charter them, or buy them, but they are not cheap!
