Jeff Bezos Invests $400M into Superyacht

A recent Twitter post has revealed Jeff Bezos has purchased a brand new superyacht with an eye-watering price tag of A$400 million. But, what is that for a guy who earns $US8,961,187 million an hour? That’s according to Business Insider.

Bezos’s new Flying Fox was built and designed in Norway in 2019, by no other than the well-known yacht builder Lurssen Yachts.

The superyacht is the 14th largest yacht on Earth, boasting 136 meters in length. Designed by the award-winning designer Espen Oeino, the Flying Fox features a stunningly eye-catching hull, with contemporary and unique interiors to match.

Flaunting a powerful engine of 12,000 horsepowers, the maximum speed it can develop is 20 knots.

Built to accommodate up to 22 guests in 11 private and sumptuous cabins. The crew onboard totals to 54 people in 25 rooms. Because of the yacht’s recent release, we are unable to find any actual photos of the interior but above you can check the deck placements, as well as some exterior details.

It’s worth mentioning that the Flying Fox is built with a large pool area on the main deck, a cine, two helipads, a spa, a gym, a sauna, and a massage area. All these features add tremendous comfort the guests encounter allows them to forget the world day-to-day problems, fully immerse into the yacht’s luxurious environment and have a whale of a relaxing time.

It’s a bit unexpected from Jeff Bezos buying a $400 million superyacht right from the bat after his recent divorce with his wife MacKenzie. Though a lot of people may think this is an excruciating moment in Bezos’s life, and it might actually be, he managed to show the bright side of the drama with his recent tweet. Jeff said that he doesn’t regret the 25 years he spent with MacKenzie and if he had the chance he would spend all of them all over again.

Perhaps it’s time for the richest man on the planet to take some time off with his brand new yacht and enjoy life.

In the main, the Flying Fox is undoubtedly worth checking it out due to its fantastic and enormous design. It will definitely leave you with a jaw-dropping expression on your face.
