Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg may be the man of the moment, what with the Time Person of the Year award, the most hotly awaited impending initial public offering and a critically acclaimed movie loosely based on his life.
Late last year, Mr. Page bought Senses from the New Zealand millionaire Douglas Myers for $45 million, according to The New Zealand Herald.
What did the Google billionaire get for his money? The newspaper obliges with a wealth of details:
Its stylish interiors are finished by famous French designer Philippe Starck and its split-level decks are home to sun-lounging areas, festooned with a multitude of deck chairs.
There are sheltered indoor and outdoor dining areas, as well as a gym and on-deck jacuzzi. It can accommodate 10 guests and 14 crew.
There are pleasure-boats of all sizes available for guests’ use and the yacht can carry a helicopter with ease.

None of my professional engagements is ever going to provide this sort of perk, I’m afraid.
