Jeff Bezos may be the richest man in the world, but there’s one little indulgence he never allowed himself: having his own yacht. This “oversight” will soon be rectified.
The founder of Amazon would have ordered a huge yacht of 417 feet to the Dutch manufacturer Oceanco. Jeff Bezos reportedly ordered a $500 million mega yacht. The yacht would be longer than a soccer field with several decks as well as a support yacht with helipad. Bezos reportedly placed the order two years ago with the Dutch company Oceanco. The ship would then be one of the largest yachts ever built in the Netherlands, the capital of boat building for millionaires. The project, named Y721, remains a well-kept secret. The yachting sector has exploded during the luxury industry boom, and it is currently difficult to get a slot in a new construction yard.
