Fraser Yachts

When the words “famous explorer yacht” are strung together, Tatoosh is one name that comes to mind among yacht-watchers. The 303-foot expedition vessel, built by Nobiskrug in 2000, gained recognition thanks to its high-profile owners—American telecom executive Craig McCaw and Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen. Behind the big names, this gigayacht is more noteworthy for its capacity for adventure.

Tatoosh is more than a pretty yacht; she’s designed to venture around the world,” Capt. Laurent Delleur, who has been with the yacht since 2007, told Robb Report.

A roster of international designers had a hand in Tatoosh’s design evolution, including German designer Claus Kusch for the distinctive exterior and British designer Terence Disdale on the original interior.

Following Allen’s death in 2018, the current owner bought Tatoosh in 2022 and embarked on a significant refit, which included an interior refresh, full upgrade of the AV/IT systems, and changes to the outdoor spaces. He also put it into Fraser Yachts charter fleet.

Beyond the tech, Tatoosh is one of the quietest yachts afloat thanks to twin DEUTZ-MWM 2,500 hp diesel engines with Visco Masse rubber mounts. The yacht has an impressive 7,000-nautical mile range when cruising at speeds of 12.5 knots. Its top speed is 16 knots.

Here are eight cool facts you didn’t know about one of the world’s most recognizable yachts.
