Jeff Bezos has been battling the Netherlands to construct a large yacht of their yard — however it appears he is relenting, ‘trigger his child was dragged away on the ass first light.
An enormous vessel being created for JB close to the town of Rotterdam — a 417-ft lengthy, three-mast beast known as Y721 that prices round $500 mil — obtained the tow therapy very early Tuesday morning from a Dutch shipbuilding yard, the place it has been below building for some time.
There’s video too … you possibly can see a couple of totally different smaller ships main Jeff’s away, and in keeping with stories, they have been attempting to be low-key about this — with the timing (earlier than dawn) and the route — to get it to a different shipyard about 24 miles away.
The rationale for the seemingly secret mission right here — there’s been a variety of outrage there over an historic bridge doubtlessly being taken down simply so Jeff’s mammoth superyacht can sail out to sea.
The bridge, which has landmark standing, is called De Hef … and it is proper close to the positioning the place JB’s yacht has been getting pimped out by an organization known as Oceanco.
The issue … De Hef is not tall sufficient to accommodate Y721 passing via, and there was hypothesis Oceanco was going to ask the town to partially dismantle the bridge — on Jeff’s dime, in fact — however that majorly pissed off locals.
The backlash was so intense, Oceanco reportedly backed off the bridge ask … and now, it appears they will proceed the construct at a website nowhere close to De Hef.
Phrase is that this may delay the boat’s completion by a number of extra months, so Jeff’s maiden voyage should be postponed a bit, it appears. As annoyed pirates put it … AARRGH!
