A Man With A Dream Buys Tatoosh


Young Jim Jacobson with John Wayne.


Jim Jacobson, an American Institute of Architecture award-winning home builder and Seattle native, is the current owner of Tatoosh as of summer 2018.


His appreciation for the beauty and history of boats began in his youth, growing up on the beaches of Puget Sound in Seattle. He has fond memories of serving as first mate aboard John Wayne’s 136’ wooden yacht, Wild Goose, during his pre-college years, 1975-1977.


For Jacbson, Tatoosh represents what he dubs ‘a technicolor life’—witnessing her art, beauty, and history each day on the water.
