Bezos makes waves as he yachts in style across the Greek isles

From the Cyclades to Ionian, see the Amazon tycoon's extravagant nautical escapades

Last year, Jeff Bezos celebrated his time in the Cycladic Islands; this year, he opted for the Ionian Islands. On Wednesday, he and his group were spotted on the island of Kastos near Lefkada. Arriving on the island via a tender from Bezos' luxurious yacht "Koru," the sight was truly remarkable.

The "Koru" is an impressive yacht, stretching 127 meters in length and boasting three masts that soar to a height of 70 meters. The construction of this vessel amounted to $500 million, a figure that might sound mythical to many, but not to the Amazon magnate himself.

With a personal fortune estimated at approximately $163 billion by Forbes, Bezos certainly spares no expense for his coastal getaways. This summer, he is cruising the Ionian Sea accompanied by his partner, Lauren Sánchez.

Thursday morning saw the "Koru" docking near Ithaca, marking Bezos' next vacation destination.

Koru's operational expenses amount to roughly $25 million annually and the yacht is valued at $500 million. Its accommodation capacity stands at 18 guests, all served by a crew of 40 sailors. This splendid vessel joins an existing fleet of superyachts, helicopters, and planes in Bezos' possession.

The aluminum and steel schooner reportedly encompasses three decks, along with a well-appointed swimming pool.

Adjacent to this mammoth yacht, a smaller support vessel features a helipad for Bezos and his celebrity guests. This supplementary yacht is also expected to be laden with luxury cars, jet skis, speedboats, and a personal submarine, according to the Daily Mail.
