Whatever floats your boat!
Jeff Bezos’ luxury superyacht has pulled into Cannes for its famed film festival.
But while the new $500 million vessel, Koru, has been making headlines as the world’s largest sailing yacht — and for featuring a mermaid on its prow that looks like his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez — its not the only boat in town.
Bezos’ support yacht, Abeona, is also in the Riviera town’s port.
The 246-foot vessel carries crew as well as what the New York Times described as “toys,” including “ATVs, supercars, seaplanes, motorcycles, smaller boats, scuba gear, personal submarines and even helicopters that pleasure boaters might bring on a trip.”
Also in the area is the $70 million yacht, Artisan, owned by venture capitalist Todd Chafree, who invested in Netflix, Kayak and Twitter.
Billionaire British entrepreneur Brett Alexander Palos’ $45 million boat, Illusion, has also been spotted in the port.
Palos is the stepson of Topshop bigwig Sir Phillip Green.
The $70 million yacht, Siren, has also been seen off Cannes.
The 241-footer is own by David Reuben, a member of the reportedly second wealthiest family in the UK. Forbes estimates his worth at $6.7 billion.
Noticeably absent this year are the yachts of Russian oligarchs.
Away from Bezos’ big boat, the Amazon billionaire and Sanchez were spotted in Cannes at a magazine party at the fancy Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc over the weekend, and at a private mansion party for Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.”
