This superyacht CEO didn't sell Jeff Bezos a $500M boat but confirms demand is 'absolutely incredible'

MarineMax CEO and President Brett McGill is no stranger to selling superyachts that cost anywhere from $200,000 to $100 million to the ultra wealthy. Actually, it's his job to do so. 

And based on years of experience, McGill understands why Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos may be building a monster of a floating luxury vessel.

"Beyond that, I think it's relative for everybody.
