There’s rich and then there’s Jeff Bezos rich when you buy a yacht that’s so big it needs its own yacht to get to it.
The world’s richest man has just bought an enormous 417-foot super-yacht that’s estimated to cost around $500 million. The yacht does have three decks and three huge masts, which means it can’t have a Helipad to get on and off the ship.
So, amusingly, Jeff Bezos needs to cover the cost of the ‘support yacht’ needed to reach his yacht according to Bloomberg.
Oh, and btw, the main image above is his other superyacht, Flying Fox. Because super-rich people need two superyachts, obvs. Below is what his new yacht is rumoured to look like.
Then again, considering Bezos is now worth around $200 billion, an increase of $75 billion in the last year alone, he might not be too worried about that. It is, as you could say, just a drop in the ocean.
The superyacht is believed to be one of the largest in the world and is set for completion in Holland next month.
And with borders closing and privacy at a premium, building your own superyacht makes all the sense in the world for the super-rich. Some can even cruise for 9,000 miles before needing to refuel, making them floating palaces.
Meanwhile, 2020 has been such a good year for DubaiLAD we’ve been able to buy our own blow-up dinghy!
