Jeff Bezos Reportedly Building 127m Oceanco Sailing Yacht Y721
The 127m sailing yacht in-build at Oceanco and known as Y721 reportedly belongs to Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and world’s richest man.
Amazon has until now disclaimed all rumours of superyacht ownership, including those that Bezos owned 136m Lurssen motor yacht Flying Fox.
The most recent claims came from an excerpt of Brad Stone’s forthcoming book Amazon Unbound published in Bloomberg Businessweek last week.
Stone wrote, ‘There, outside Rotterdam, a new creation was secretly taking shape: a 127-meter-long, three-mast schooner about which practically nothing was known…’
In accordance with client confidentiality, Oceanco declined to comment on the claims.
Y721, scheduled for launch later this year, could become the world’s largest sailing yacht when she hits the water.
In the excerpt, Stone also reported that Oceanco will be building Bezos an accompanying support yacht, complete with helipad.
