Paul Allen, the multi-billionaire co-founder of Microsoft and one of the top 50 richest people in the world, has recently put his yacht, ‘Tatoosh’, up for sale for a whopping $125 million Euros. When you see the pictures, just remember this is all on a 303-ft boat, not some paltry house on *shudder* land. Built in 2001, this boat features amenities that are beyond the comprehension of us non-billionaires, from multiple helicopter landing pads to basketball courts. The pictures below offer a glimpse into a world most will never experience.
