Koru is a luxury custom superyacht. The vessel was built in the Netherlands by Oceanco starting in 2021, and delivered in April 2023. It is a three-masted sailing yacht 127 meters (417 ft) long and reported to have cost $500 million or more. When commissioned, the yacht was the second-largest sailing yacht in the world, after Andrey Melnichenko's Sailing Yacht A.

In 2022, Rotterdam announced that the city's historic De Hef bridge would be partially dismantled, temporarily, to allow the yacht to pass through. This move was very controversial because the bridge is a Dutch national monument owing to its long history.
