Oceanco's 127m 'Koru' Spotted on Sea Trials
The 127-metre Oceanco Y721 believed to have been christened 'Koru' has now undertaken the first few days of sea trials in the North Sea; departing Rotterdam in the early hours of February 13th.
Oceanco's $500 million superyacht, which will be the second largest sailing yacht in the world when she is delivered, is owned by Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos.
The billionaire commissioned the construction of the superyacht, which hit the headlines last year when it required an iconic Dutch bridge to be dismantled in order to reach the open sea.
Although very little about Koru's design team has been revealed, it is clear that she features three large masts, a distinct black hull and white superstructure, complimented by classic exterior lines.
She is the longest yacht ever to have been launched in the Netherlands and will officially be the tallest sailing yacht in the world when she is delivered to the Amazon founder, superseding the current largest ocean-going passenger ship Sea Cloud.
After completing her sea trials, Koru is expected to be delivered to Bezos later this month, and will then join a fleet of three sailing yachts longer than 100m.
