Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Oprah have strolled her decks. (*Geffen may be the one on the ships bridge waving to people in the video. go to 1:29 in the clip.) The most significant harbor visitor since the old whaler Charles W Morgan in 2014, is expected to have a brief stay. The world-renowned superyacht will take on 70,000 gallons of fuel from Sea Fuels Marine at The Marine Commerce Terminal. "Great news that the Port of New Bedford is poised and able to accommodate this type of service." Liz Isherwood - Moore and Isherwood, Inc. *ML's Note: Ships of this size have entered the city before, especially the clementine freighters., however, this is one of the largest pleasure yachts to enter the harbor that I've seen. Some have disputed the ship's value to be exaggerated. It was also the 11th largest superyacht in the world in 2017. Hollywood billionaire David Geffen has been self-isolating on his yacht since the pandemic. The 495-foot yacht had been bouncing around the Caribbean the past few weeks.
