Senses has previously been available for charter in the Seychelles Islands for $343,000 a week.
Senses is well known in superyacht circles and New Zealand based yacht broker Allan Jouning, of 37 South, confirmed Page had bought the boat.
“He took delivery before the new year,” said Jouning. “He’s been looking at it for some time.”
He added that Page was not new to a life of luxury on the sea, having chartered large craft in the past, Jouning said, “I’ve had him charter some of my boats up in Tahiti.”
