Bezos’s superyacht, which likely will cost upwards of $500 million to build and have its own support yacht with a helipad.
When completed, it will be 127 meters (417 feet) long, span several decks and sport three enormous masts, according to the scant information available on the website of its manufacturer and various online bulletin boards of yachting enthusiasts. That will make it one of the largest sailing yachts ever built in the Netherlands, the unofficial capital of boat building for the extremely rich. So far the spokesman for Oceanco, the Dutch yachtmaker responsible for the ship, as usual, declined to comment.
Bezos’s previous yacht is called the Flying Fox, built and designed in Norway in 2019 by the well-known yacht building company Lurssen Yachts.
