A historic bridge in the Netherlands has to be temporarily dismantled so that JEFF BEZOS can drive his massive yacht through it. He's having the largest yacht in the world built nearby, and when it's done, it'll be too big to go under it. 

The Koningshaven Bridge in Rotterdam was originally built in 1927. It was decommissioned in 1994, and declared a national monument. It underwent a major restoration in 2017, after which the city said it would remain intact going forward.

But that was before Jeff decided to build the LARGEST SAILING YACHT in the world in a nearby city. The 417-foot-long beast is too tall to clear the bridge. It's expected to be finished this summer.

And when it's ready to sail, Bezos and the company that's building it will share the cost of dismantling the bridge so it can pass through . . . then reassembling it.

There's no word how much that'll cost, but the price tag on the boat itself is said to be more than $500 million.
