Jeff Bezos’ megayacht is no longer a problem, plans to dismantle the bridge are abandoned


Oceanco
, the shipbuilder constructing Jeff Bezos’ megayacht scrapped its request that a historic bridge be dismantled to accommodate the Jeff Bezos’s vessel.

Oceanco,  informed the city of Rotterdam that it would no longer be requesting a permit to remove the center portion of the Koningshaven Bridge, to allow Bezos’ yacht to reach the North Sea.

While the city didn’t rule out the possibility of a future permit to dismantle the bridge, Oceanco isn’t going forward with the plan for the time being.

It seems that Oceanco may have abandoned its plans to take apart the bridge following public outcry earlier this year.

The shipbuilder was taken aback by the uproar and had opted to drop its plans.

As a result of the reports, shipyard employees feel threatened and the company fears vandalism

It’s unclear how the yacht will now be transported if it doesn’t fit under the bridge. Oceanco could choose to finish it at a shipyard closer to the sea.
