Steve Jobs’s Yacht “Venus” By Philippe Starck

By - October 28th, 2012

In Walter Isaacson’s biography of Apple‘s late CEO Steve Jobs, there are references to a planned yacht, describing renderings depicting a sleek vessel built with a teak deck and large floor-to-ceiling cabin windows. The elegiac passage finds Jobs tweaking the build, from Dutch custom yacht builder Feadship, disclosing that he doesn’t want to leave his wife Laurene a “half-built boat.” One year following his untimely passing, Jobs’ yacht made its first public appearance in the Dutch city of Aalsmeer, with Laurene and her three children in attendance. Christened “Venus” and designed by famed minimalist Philippe Starck, the superyacht measures up to 80 meters long and houses seven 27-inch iMacs. Check out more looks below.
