Jeff Bezos’ girlfriend Lauren Sanchez has just touched down in a helicopter to meet her billionaire partner in New York City.
Lauren Sanchez – an American media personality – is no stranger to the extravagance of private travel.
She is a helicopter pilot herself and her net worth is a cool $30 million.
With her $30 million and Jeff Bezos’s $195 billion, it’s no surprise the couple has a fleet of helicopters, private jets, yachts and multimillion-dollar estates across the US.
So, let’s take a deep dive into the couple’s incredible wealth and what it can afford them.

1. Flying Fox private yacht
Called the Flying Fox, this private yacht is a staggering 135 meters (443 feet) long.
Worth more than $400 million, it costs $40 million just to operate each year.
The vessel has two helipads and its very own helicopter on board.
The chopper itself is estimated to be worth $100 million.
It has one master suite and 10 VIP suites for guests.
It also has a gym, jacuzzi, spa, pool and cinema.
Bezos reportedly also rents it out to celebrities like Beyoncé for $3 million a week.
The massive yacht has three 70-meter (229-foot) masts and is the height of a 13-story building.
In fact, the billionaire this year asked the Dutch city of Rotterdam to dismantle a historical bridge so he could fit his superyacht underneath.
The Koningshaven bridge has been in place, undisrupted, since 1927.
So understandably, his request ruffled a few feathers.
2. Gulfstream G650ER private jet
Jeff Bezos dropped a cool $65 million on his Gulfstream G650ER.
The private jet can seat up to 19 passengers and sleep up to 10.
It’s powered by two Rolls-Royce engines and has a top speed of more than 1,110km/h.
The billionaire uses it to fly between his many properties and Washington, DC where his Amazon headquarters is based.
Elon Musk, Cristiano Ronaldo and Laurene Powell Jobs all own Gulfstream G650 jets.
Bezos’ girlfriend Sanchez founded her own company in 2016 called Black Ops Aviation – a film and production company.
She has a range of helicopters the company uses to get aerial shots for films and TV.
The fleet includes a BELL 429 w/Shotover, an AS350 w/Shotover and her Cirrus SR22.
4. Bezos and Sanchez share Maui estate
Bezos, together with Sanchez, bought a 14-acre estate on the island of Maui.
They reportedly bought it for $78 million.
The compound has a 418 sqm (4,500 sqft) main house, 157 sqm (1,700 sqft) guesthouse and 65 sqm (700 sqft) pool.
It also has a private beach, fire pit, ocean views and a fish pond.
5. $600 million real estate portfolio
Aside from his Maui estate, Bezos has hundreds of millions of dollars worth of properties across the US.
The value of all his real estate portfolio is reportedly about $600 million.
He owns a couple of multimillion-dollar homes in LA, including one he bought for $165 million in 2020.
He also owns a mansion in Seattle, a ranch in Texas, a couple of homes in Washington, DC (his hometown) and four apartments in New York.
