List of motor yachts by length Ellison's Rising Sun was built to surpass the size of the 414 foot yacht Octopus, owned by Microsoft’s Paul Allen.
Besides being a yacht enthusiast, Larry Ellison is also a medical philanthropist: The Ellison Medical Foundation IRS Form 990 Ellison told the San Francisco Chronicle, "It's still a little surreal in one lifetime to go from running out of money at the end of every month and living on macaroni and cheese, which is what I did when I came to San Francisco, to having all this money." http://www.BradReese.Com
