Bezos lost his position as the wealthiest man in the world to space technology rival Elon Musk last month. He currently has a net worth of $ 197 billion (£ 143 billion).

He also purchased a shadow yacht used to carry cars and helicopters at sea. This is a custom version of the Damen Yachts YS7512 model.
