The boat has finally been able to go out to sea and she has been seen carrying out the tests in the North Sea according to images published by Dutch Yachting.
How could it be otherwise, in the case of one of the richest men in the world, the founder of Amazon has wanted his new ‘toy’ to be the largest sailing yacht in the world. But her more than 127 meter length and her three sails have caused her some problems. Last summer it became known that in order to leave the city of Rotterdam, where it has been built, it was necessary to dismantle the iconic De Hef bridge, symbol of the city.
However, criticism from citizens forced Oceanco to give up on its idea. The yacht remained in the shipyard for months, until a few weeks ago when she was seen at sea. How did she get there? According to specialized media, the boat was towed to another shipyard without the mast, which was the main problem to cross the bridge. After carrying out the tests in the North Sea, the megayacht would be ready to be delivered to its owner.
