Jeff Bezos’s magnificent superyacht, the KORU, continues to captivate the world as it sails through the waters of Gibraltar, Spain, France, and Italy. This luxurious vessel, constructed by Oceanco, has become a symbol of opulence and grandeur. Alongside the KORU, Jeff Bezos has also acquired a custom shadow yacht named ABEONA, ensuring seamless voyages and unparalleled comfort.
The KORU, previously known as Y721, stands proudly at an impressive length of 127 meters, making it the largest sailing yacht ever built in the Netherlands. Its design draws inspiration from Māori culture, with the name KORU representing “new beginnings.” With its striking black hull, elegant white superstructure, and timeless exterior lines reminiscent of the esteemed Eos yacht, the KORU is a sight to behold.
Onboard the KORU, guests can indulge in the epitome of luxury. The aft deck features a spacious pool, inviting guests to unwind and enjoy the breathtaking views. Multiple relaxing areas across the open decks provide ample space for socializing and savoring the serenity of the open sea. Accommodating up to 18 guests, the KORU offers a haven of tranquility, attended to by a dedicated crew of approximately 40.
To complement the KORU, Jeff Bezos acquired the ABEONA support vessel from Damen Yachting. With its voluminous capacity of 1,900 tons, ABEONA serves as a haven for water toys and tenders. Equipped with a helicopter hangar, it ensures swift and convenient transportation to and from various destinations. ABEONA can accommodate a total of 45 staff, crew, and guests, ensuring impeccable service throughout the journey.
The construction of the KORU yacht has garnered attention worldwide, with rumors circulating about its association with the historic Koningshaven Bridge in Rotterdam. However, expert navigation skills enabled the yacht’s masts to pass through the bridge without any alterations, preserving the bridge’s architectural integrity.
Jeff Bezos, renowned as the world’s wealthiest individual, embarks on these remarkable vessels, embracing his passion for exploration and luxury. While he denies ownership of the yacht “Flying Fox,” his affinity for the sea is undeniable, as exemplified by the acquisition of the KORU and ABEONA.
As the KORU and ABEONA traverse the seas, their magnificence captures the admiration of yacht enthusiasts worldwide. These vessels epitomize sophistication, elegance, and the pursuit of new horizons. Stay tuned for further updates as Jeff Bezos and his guests embark on unforgettable journeys aboard these extraordinary yachts, creating cherished memories and embracing the allure of the open waters.
