Google co-founder Larry Page recently plunked down $45 million for his first yacht.

The 193-foot superyacht, Senses, features a small helicopter pad, a gym, split-level sun decks, sheltered and exposed dining areas, 10 luxury suites, a crew of 14 and interiors by French designer Philippe Starck.

Page, who will turn 38 in March, is worth $15 billion. He bought the yacht from New Zealand brewery heir Sir Douglas Meyer.

"On any summer day in Sag Harbor, Page's new boat will be dwarfed by boats 300 feet or longer," yacht broker Chris Dowling at Bruce Tait & Associates in Sag Harbor, N.Y., told the New York Post.

"It's little," he added.

Google had no comment on the purchase.
