Jeffery Preston Bezos is an American entrepreneur who plays a key role in the growth of e-commerce as the founder and CEO of Amazon.com, an online merchandise store that sells books, merchandise, accessories, gadgets, clothing, shoes, etc. , on an international level.
He founded Amazon from his Seattle garage in 1994; however, its business prospered, especially during the 2019-2021 pandemic, when billions of people were forced to stay home, and Amazon’s revenue increased 38% to $389 from many online purchases. Jeffery also owns “The Washington Post,” making him one of the richest people in the world.
Amazon’s initial success was meteoric without press promotions. At the time, Amazon was only selling books in the United States and 45 foreign countries in 30 days. It received a lot of criticism, leading market analysts to question whether the company could launch its own traditional retailer. Bezos continued to diversify Amazon’s offerings with sales of CDs, clothing, electronics, and toys, all through major retail partnerships.
By 2018, Amazon was valued at more than $1 trillion, the second company to hit that record after Apple. Today, Amazon has its own video-on-demand service, a portable digital book called Kindle, drones to provide costume delivery services, and two-hour grocery delivery of whole foods.
Jeff Bezos “Superyacht”
International media have reported that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is building a large yacht in the Netherlands. This superyacht is also known as Y721 and is currently under construction at Oceano.
The yacht in question is understood to be a three-masted schooner with an aluminum and steel construction and will become the world’s largest sailing yacht ever built in the Netherlands and will be delivered in 2022. International media also reported that Bezos ordered a big support. 75-meter vessel that will carry all the toys and tenders for the main yacht. With a volume of 19,000 tons, she will be the largest vessel in the Damen Yacht Support range.
The yacht will have a swimming pool on the aft deck, much like the “Flying Fox”. She would also have a helicopter hangar that could accommodate a large helicopter. The yacht is expected to be able to accommodate 18 guests with a total of 45 staff members.
The yacht had to go through Rotterdam
The 417-foot-long sailing yacht received media attention when Oceano and Bezos announced that the ship would have to pass through Rotterdam to reach the ocean and navigate a historic steel bridge known as De Hef. The drawbridge can be raised more than 130 feet into the air, but it’s still not tall enough to accommodate the yacht’s three giant masts.
The city agreed to temporarily dismantle the center section of the bridge, sparking anger in the city calling it a “Phallic Symbol”. Protesters in the Netherlands have shared their plan to throw rotten eggs at the yacht to protect it from the dismantling of its recently restored Koningshaven Bridge, which was built from the rubble of Rotterdam residents.
