Google mogul Larry Page has joined the billionaire boat owner club by splashing out $45 million on his own super yacht – but unlike many moguls, he bought his yacht used.
Page picked up the 193-ft boat ‘Senses’ which comes with a helipad, gym, multi-level sun decks, ten luxurious suites, a crew of 14 and interior design by famed French designer Philippe Starck.
Page, who is worth an estimated $15 billion, bought the boat from New Zealand brewing heir Sir Douglas Meyer.
Meyer said Page took delivery on the mega-yacht shortly before the new year, and perhaps enjoyed the holidays on the high seas with his family.
Page married model Lucinda Southworth at Richard Branson’s Necker Island in 2007, with whom he has a one-year-old son.
He has visited Senses while it was docked in New Zealand over the past year and chartered other yachts around Tahiti while contemplating his purchase, Meyer told the New Zealand Herald, which first reported the purchase.
But Page’s new toy is still dwarfed by those owned by other high-tech moguls, such as Paul Allen and Larry Ellison.
Allen’s ‘Octopus’ comes in at 415-ft in length, while Ellison’s ‘Rising Sun’ is 454-ft long, with both costing more than $200 million.
