Centibillionaire Jeff Bezos, his fiancée Lauren Sanchez, and their $500 million megayacht Koru grabbed a lot of headlines this year. From the luxury vessel’s amazing features, the proposal aboard the schooner, and the unending Mediterranean sojourn, there was umpteen hoopla surrounding the boat. Another aspect that was widely discussed was the massive figurehead, a wooden sculpture carved as a Roman goddess, spotted on the 417-feet-long ship. It was assumed to be a grand gesture of love by Bezos, who immortalized his ladylove on the second-largest sailing yacht in the world.

As much as we all love OTT gestures of love, Lauren Sánchez debunked the widely held thought that the figurehead mounted on Jeff Bezos’ Oceanco mammoth is her. “I’m very flattered, but it’s not,” Sánchez told Vogue in a lengthy feature. The sculpture on the prow that we at Luxurylaunches described as a Roman goddess was indeed one of Bezos’s favorite mythological figures, Freyja, the Norse goddess of love, fertility, war, and gold.

The only luxury vessel with a figurehead of an actual person is media baron Barry Diller’s 305-feet-long, $200 million Enigma superyacht. The figurehead is of ace fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. The Amazon co-founder may not have dedicated the wooden figurehead to Sanchez, but he sealed the deal with his longtime girlfriend while cruising on his half-a-billion-dollar schooner with a nearly 20-carat pink diamond ring.
