International media report that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is building a large yacht in the Netherlands. And that he has also ordered a large (75 meter) support vessel.
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)).
For the delivery of the yacht, a central part of the historic Koningshaven Bridge in Rotterdam will have to be dismantled.
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.
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.
