When Bezos was spotted aboard, he was already making headlines because reports surfaced that he owned a $400 million megayacht himself.

Not much is known about the yacht, but it is reported to have a glass staircase and a private Jacuzzi, and it can accommodate up to 16 guests.

That means there was plenty of room for other guests to join in on the outing: According to Page Six, entrepreneur Ricky van Veen and movie producer Jason Blum were on board, too.

Bezos also partied with Katy Perry and Lil Nas X in Seattle at the end of August. The two celebrities performed at a concert for roughly 45,000 Amazon employees to celebrate a successful Prime Day.
