Jeff Bezos retained his title as the world’s richest man for quite a few years. The Amazon founder also participated in the unofficial space race of the super rich individuals. That being said, the billionaire has been having a little trouble with his yacht as of late.
According to TMZ, the former world’s richest man recently got his massive yacht towed on the orders of Dutch authorities. The vessel is currently under construction near Rotterdam.
This 417-foot vessel, created for Bezos, cost $500 million, but it still got towed. It was also reported that it was in a Dutch shipyard that has “been under construction for a while.”

The landmark is known as De Hef, and is located right near the site where Bezos yacht has been getting constructed by a company called Oceanco. Keep reading Thirsty for more.
