Steve Jobs Yacht “Venus” Makes Its First Appearance
Named “Venus” after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, the yacht that Steve Jobs had been designing before his untimely death has been spotted in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands. The vessel was reportedly a joint effort between the Apple legend and designer Philippe Starck, the aesthetics of both parties are evident in the finished version sleek, minimal lines, copious use of glass, and the inclusion of seven 27-inch iMacs in the wheelhouse. From various estimates, “Venus” is roughly 230 to 260 feet long and its 100% aluminum body likely renders it one of the lightest water vessels of its size. Jobs’ family will be present at the yacht’s proper christening, though the intended use or purpose of “Venus” is yet unknown.
