My Favorite Hedonist

My favorite Hedonist, Paul Allen, of Vulcan Ventures, has his yachts described in this article.

From the article:

....Paul Allen, for example, owns a $200 million 416-foot yacht called the Octopus. It carries a ten-man submarine, two helicopters, and a crew of 60.

[...]

The kicker to this is that Allen actually has two other yachts: the Tatoosh which at 301 feet is the 15th-largest in the worldand the 198-foot Meduse. Alas, the Meduse can carry only one helicopter. To show you how far out of hand things have gotten, the Tatoosh was the third-largest private yacht in the world just three years ago...
I just love this guy! He should be appointed the Federal Secretary of Enjoyment & Leisure Services.

BTW, Allen is also co-founder of Microsoft.
