A spokesperson for Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg has denied the billionaire has purchased the 107 metre explorer yacht Ulysses
The explorer superyacht Ulysses has been sold for an undisclosed sum and while rumours circulated that Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg was the new owner of the 107 metre luxury vessel, the buyer has not been confirmed.
Tech Crunch has reported that a spokesperson for Zuckerberg has denied that the 33-year-old billionaire has purchased the superyacht. “The reports related to Mark purchasing a yacht are completely inaccurate as he did not purchase a yacht.”, the spokesperson said.
Previous owner and New Zealand businessman Graeme Hart commissioned the superyacht from the Kleven shipyard in Norway. Ulysses was the first private superyacht to be built by the Norwegian yard.
