A new book about Amazon founder Jeff Bezos appears to have confirmed long-standing rumours that he is the owner of a secretive 127-metre sailing yacht currently under construction at Oceanco in the Netherlands.

The project, known as Y721, is understood to be a three-masted schooner that will become the world’s largest sailing yacht when delivered.

In the book, Amazon Unbound, an excerpt from which was published by Bloomberg, the superyacht is described as “one of the finest sailing yachts in existence,” with “several decks” and “three enormous masts”. The book reports that an accompanying support boat is also under construction.
