The Amazon CEO has commissioned a 416-foot custom yacht from the Dutch shipbuilder Oceanco, according to an excerpt from Brad Stone’s forthcoming book, “Amazon Unbound,” that was published in Bloomberg Businessweek on Wednesday.

The three-mast ship is expected to be “one of the finest sailing yachts in existence,” but other details about the yacht are unknown, even among those in the exclusive luxury boat world, Stone reports.

In addition to the mega-yacht, Bezos has reportedly commissioned a second, smaller, “support yacht” that will include its own helipad. Bezos’ girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, is a helicopter pilot and Stone reports that Bezos has taken flying lessons as well.

Bezos, who is the richest person in the world with a fortune worth $193 billion, hasn’t previously had a boat of his own.
