Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery they say, and Jeff Bezos, 59, is doing just that for his girlfriend, Lauren Sánchez, 53. 

Bezos had a wooden sculpture, in the likeness of the former anchor, placed on the prow of his superyacht.

The yacht is reported to have cost $500 million and according to Boat International, is said to be record-breaking in size, known to be the largest sailing yacht in the world and the longest built in the Netherlands.

It made its sailing debut on the waters last month and was made specifically for the billionaire tycoon. 

Bezos named his yacht, Koru, which in Maori means new beginnings. Ironically, the Amazon founder’s superyacht forced the partial dismantling of a historic bridge in Rotterdam. De Hef was opened in 1927 and many locals were understandably unhappy about Bezos’ disturbance.

“That is really going a bridge too far,” politician Stephen Leewis tweeted. 

Bezos and Sánchez met when the 59-year-old was still married to his ex-wife Mackenzie Scott and caused quite a scandal when the current couple’s affair was discovered. Bezos and Scott were married for 25 years before filing for a divorce in 2019. They share three sons and one daughter. 

Despite their questionable foundation, the Amazon CEO and former Fox anchor seem to be very happy in their relationship. 

For Bezos’ birthday this year, Sánchez posted a heartfelt Instagram message saying, “You have shown me that no great love is not bravely fought for. Thank you for always being by my side and for being the most loving and supportive partner.”
