Jeff Bezos has been secretly building one of the finest yachts in history, and it could cost up to US$500 million. The billionaire has commissioned Netherlands-based yacht manufacturer Oceano for the rumored 127-meter-long (416-foot-long) luxury ship.

According to Luxurylaunches, its design is said to be inspired by Oceano’s previous work, the Black Pearl, which is currently the largest yacht in the world at 107 meters (350 feet).

The Black Pearl is also one of the most high-tech ships, with features such as the DynaRig system, single-level engine room, and a hybrid propulsion installation and regeneration mode under sail.

It’s likely Bezos’ yacht will be decked out with even more of the latest technology; he is the founder of Amazon, after all.

The yacht is also reported to feature three huge masts, with several decks spanning across the ship. The project is so grand it’ll come with a support boat with its own helipad, too.

No pictures of Bezos’ yacht have been released, but the images of the Oceano’s Black Pearl, which the cruiser is said to be inspired by, might illustrate what it will look like.
