Celebrating the New Year in a tradewinds atmosphere was Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. According to The Daily Mail, he took a family jaunt to St. Barts where he was spotted aboard Tender To, an 88.7-foot, $42K-per-week charter that operates in the Caribbean.
Tender To was built by Italian yard Leopard Yachts. She features an exterior in a glossy metallic shade of gold. Her design includes a large upper salon, an aft deck with a sunbed and lounge — which can be converted for outside dining — and a swim platform with two sets of steps for water-to-ship access. Her foredeck contains a second sun pad, with an optional Bimini.
Accommodations aboard Tender To include a full-beam master stateroom, which features a king-size bed and a sitting area with a sofa. Other cabins include a double and a twin. Her staterooms are designed with an eye to a more classically nautical style, with glossy mid-toned hardwood in abundance.
A pair of 2000-horsepower MTU diesel engines powers this yacht. And this is a fast boat; she cruises at 28 knots and tops out at a considerable 38. Toys and tenders on board Tender To include a jet ski, water skis, snorkeling gear, and a floating lounge that can accommodate eight.
Over the past five years, Bezos has frequently been in the real estate news. His most recent acquisition is an estate on Maui, which he closed on last autumn for $78 million.
Bezos’ net worth is around $190 billion, according to Forbes.
