Jeff Bezos’s New Superyacht Heralds Roaring Market for Big Boats

The triple-masted, 127-meter ship is likely to cost more than $500 million.

Even in the ostentatious world of superyachts, project Y721 stands out.

When completed, it will be 127 meters (417 feet) long, span several decks and sport three enormous masts, according to the scant information available on the website of its manufacturer and various online bulletin boards of yachting enthusiasts. That will make it one of the largest sailing yachts ever built in the Netherlands, the unofficial capital of boat building for the extremely rich.
