International media report that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is building a large yacht in the Netherlands. Jeff Bezos yacht is named KORU.  He has also ordered a large (75 meter) support vessel.

SuperYachtFan brings you the details.

Sailing Yacht

Bezos’ superyacht is actually hull Y721, currently under construction at Oceanco. We can disclose that the yacht will have a similar styling as Barry Diller’s sailing yacht EOS (which has a length of ‘just’ 93 m (305 ft)).

The yacht will have a large swimming pool on the aft deck. We estimate that the yacht can accommodate 18 guests, which will be catered for by a crew of around 40. The yacht will be delivered in 2022.

Support Vessel

International media also report that Bezos ordered a large support vessel. This is actually the 75 meter (246ft) Hull YS7512, currently under construction at Damen Yachting.

The custom-built vessel will carry all toys and tenders of the main yacht. It has a helicopter hangar that can accommodate a large helicopter. The vessel can accommodate a total of 45 staff, crew and guests.

With a volume of 1,900 tons, it will be the largest vessel in the Damen Yacht Support range.

Jeff Bezos

Bezos is the founder of Amazon.com. He is one of the richest men in the world, with a net worth of $190 billion. He was reported to be the owner of the yacht Flying Fox, which was denied by an Amazon representative. He does own a Gulfstream G650ER private jet.
