Koru, this is the name of the luxurious three-masted schooner that is considered the largest in the world and is owned by the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos. The sailing ship is in the waters of the Bay of Palma on the occasion of its maiden voyage. She is a spectacular sailing yacht of 127 meters in length and built in the Netherlands.

It was commissioned by Bezos, who resigned as CEO of Amazon, although he remains its executive president and is the third richest man in the world, with a net worth of around 125.1 billion dollars, according to the specialized magazine Forbes.

A price of 500 million dollars

This classic-looking yacht, which has cost around $500 million, is powered by kinetic energy from the sails, but like most sailing yachts, it will also have engine power. The steel hull of the Koru is navy blue, has two decks and displaces 3,300 tons, and the annual maintenance cost is around 25 million dollars.

It also has a sizeable plunge pool visible at the stern. Currently, the Koru schooner carrying about 40 crew members, sails under the flag of the Cayman Islands, the second most popular flag state for superyachts with some 1,300 registered yachts.
