Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has kicked off the hot yacht summer season with his girlfriend, former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez. The couple were photographed aboard “The Flying Fox,” a 446-foot superyacht that is estimated to cost a staggering $400 million.
According to reports, the yacht was chartered by Bezos for a two-week summer vacation with Sanchez and their friends. The Flying Fox is equipped with six decks, a cinema, a pool, a gym, and a spa. It can accommodate up to 25 guests and 55 crew members.
The couple seemed to be enjoying themselves as they soaked up the sun and took in the picturesque views onboard the luxurious yacht. They were spotted sipping on cocktails, lounging on deck chairs, and enjoying the waters of the Mediterranean. Photos of the couple and their friends also show them enjoying a night out in the town of Saint-Tropez, where they dined at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
While Bezos has previously been known to keep his private life under wraps, his relationship with Sanchez has made headlines in recent years. The couple first made their public debut in January 2019, when they were seen together at a Golden Globes after-party.
Bezos’ reported net worth is estimated to be around $177 billion, making him the richest man in the world. His extravagant summer vacation aboard The Flying Fox is just one example of the lavish lifestyle he can afford. However, his wealth has also been a source of controversy, with some criticizing him for not doing enough to give back to society.
Despite the criticism, Bezos has continued to indulge in luxury. Earlier this year, he purchased a Beverly Hills mansion for $165 million, which he reportedly plans to use as a primary residence. He has also invested in space exploration through his company, Blue Origin.
As the summer season heats up, it seems Bezos and Sanchez will continue to enjoy their hot yacht summer in style. While many of us may not be able to afford such extravagant vacations, we can still appreciate the beauty of the Mediterranean and dream of a luxury getaway on a superyacht.
