The world’s largest sailing yacht, the Koru, belonging to the billionaire founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, has made its way to Falmouth Harbor, and the Tourism Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Charles Max Fernandez, has emphasized the paramount importance of privacy for the high-profile visitor and his wife during their vacation in the beautiful twin-island nation.

The minister, acknowledging the fascination surrounding the arrival of the $500 million masterpiece, stated, “We extend a warm and gracious welcome to Mr. Jeff Bezos and his wife as they enjoy their vacation in our beautiful twin-island nation.

The allure of the Koru is undeniable, but we kindly ask everyone for their understanding and utmost respect for the privacy of our esteemed guests during this special time.”

As the yacht’s grandeur captures the attention of onlookers and enthusiasts, Minister Fernandez’s call for privacy resonates, underscoring the delicate balance between public interest and the personal space of high-profile visitors.

While refraining from divulging specific details about Bezos’ holiday plans, the minister’s office assures the public that every effort is being made to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience for the esteemed guests.

Antigua and Barbuda have always been a popular destination for the rich and famous, and they have always taken great care to provide a safe and secure environment for their visitors.

As the festive season continues, residents, tourists, and the media are reminded to exercise discretion, allowing Mr. Bezos and his company to enjoy their vacation without intrusion.

He said the visit of Jeff Bezos and his wife to Antigua and Barbuda is a testament to the country’s charm and hospitality, and they are committed to ensuring that their stay is a memorable one.
