Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen withdrew his 303-foot yacht Tatoosh from sale. During the four years that the boat was available to all comers, no real buyers were found, reports Business Inseder.

The $160 million boat was put up for sale in 2010 and, according to reports, the owner went to great lengths to market his watercraft property. In particular, Paul Allen allowed Paris and Nicky Hilton to take the boat for a ride and talk about their experiences.

The celebrities were pleased, however it wasn't enough.

«Tatoosh could not be sold, that is why we do not offer her any more», - says Stuart Larsen of Fraser Yachts.

The megayacht is adapted to accommodate 30 crew and 20 guests and features a cinema, basketball court, swimming pool, recording studio, gym and two helipads.

In addition to Tatoosh, Allen also owns Octopus, which is 414-feet in length. «Many rock musicians, including Mick Jagger and Damian Marley, have recorded their compositions aboard» Octopus. This made the ship famous.
