The masts of the 127 Meters long sailing yacht of the billionaire and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos will be too high for the bridge. So at the beginning of the year, the Dutch shipyard Oceanco wanted the Koningshaven-Bridge, also called ‘De Hef,’ to be dismantled.
The company has withdrawn the application because they feared society’s anger. The employees felt threatened, and Oceanco was afraid of possible Vandalism. That was declared by the documents of the city Rotterdam, which were able to be sighted by the Dutch newspaper ‘Trouw.’
What will happen to the sailing Yacht isn’t declared yet, even though ‘Trouw’ says the shipyard could plan to finish the yacht at a shipyard that is closer to the ocean. But the company has not yet explained its new plans.
