Jeff Bezos’s 417 foot luxury superyacht now has a wooden figurehead that bears a striking resemblance to Lauren Sanchez, his girlfriend on the prow.
The Amazon founder, 59, spared no expense on his gigantic mega yacht worth an eye-watering $500 million and has been traveling to different islands ever since he bought the yacht, named Koru, which Bezos affectionately named himself.
The sculpture of Sanche is featured on the nose of Koru, the one the couple was spotted sailing around the Spanish island Mallorca on this past Monday.
Koru is a Māori term for loop often found on silver necklaces, symbolizing new beginnings, growth, strength, and peace – a symbol that is special to the couple.
Bezos posted a photo of Koru on Instagram on New Year’s Day in a slideshow of pictures from his disco party.
‘The new year is also a great time to take stock and focus on personal growth, renewal, rebirth, and paying careful attention to each moment of your life,’ he wrote. ‘The good and the bad. All of it. Celebrate and grow.’
The yacht boasts three towering masts as well as three decks, one of which features a sprawling swimming pool, according to Boat International.
The yacht can accommodate 18 guests, and requires a crew of 40 sailors.
The yacht also requires a 250-foot support vessel that houses a helicopter landing pad for the Blue Origin founder or his celebrity guests.
It reportedly costs about $25 million a year to run the yacht.
The yacht — believed to be the largest sailing yacht in the world, features three towering masts, and several decks, including one with a pool, according to Boat International.
