Steve Jobs’ luxury super-yacht

 

Apple Co-Founder Steve Jobs’ luxury super-yacht, ‘Venus’, was unveiled on the anniversary of his death at the Dutch shipyard Koninklijke De Vries (Royal de Vries) in Aalsmeer. This sleek vessel is 80m (260 feet) long and was designed by Jobs himself along with designer Philippe Starck.

The yacht has a minimalist design, an ultralight aluminum hull, all-teak decks and a wheelhouse powered by seven 27″ iMacs. At the rear of the boat there is a hatch where a separate speedboat can be launched for those occasions when there isn’t a suitable dock available to go ashore.

  1. The Venus made a stop in Fort Lauderdale and I could not resist going to see it. We went out to the Inter-coastal aboard a 35′ Searay to gawk. Although we got to see the exterior – nobody asked us if we wanted a tour! Don’t think it is going to be available for charter any time soon.
