World’s third richest man and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ construction of the world’s tallest yacht has finally been completed.

The construction of this superyacht named Koro was underway in the Netherlands since 2018 and has now been completed.

The owner of 118 billion dollars, Jeff Bezos, is also worth a staggering 500 million dollars (more than one trillion 38 billion Pakistani rupees).

According to media reports, the boat is currently in the open sea and will be handed over to Jeff Bezos in the next few months.

The height of this boat is 230 feet and length is 127 meters.

The superyacht was built at the shipyard Oceano in Rotterdam, Netherlands and caused a controversy.

The dispute was over a historic bridge in the city as the bridge needed to be temporarily demolished to bring it to the open sea but was being opposed by the citizens.

Jeff Bezos offered to pay for the bridge to be temporarily removed and then rebuilt, but his request was rejected.

Thousands of people in the city planned to throw dirty eggs at Jeff Bezos’ yacht.

About 5,000 people have signed the project, while more than 16,000 have shown interest.

Due to this controversy, Jeff Bezos took the boat unfinished under the bridge to another shipyard where the masts were put on it.

Jeff Bezos already owns several helicopters, planes and superyachts and this new superyacht runs on eco-friendly energy.

The superyacht has a number of facilities including a helicopter landing pad and a swimming pool, while it is believed to also house a small submarine.

2.5 million dollars will be required to operate this boat every year.

It will be able to carry 18 passengers at a time while a crew of 40 people will be required to run it.
