Steve Jobs’ custom-built yacht is finally finished

When Steve Jobs, the boss of the giant american computer Apple, died on October 5, 2011 at the age of 56, he left behind him a company at the forefront of new technologies and millions of addicts apple brand in grief.

But more importantly, he left his widow Laurene Powell, with whom he had three children, Reed (21), Erin (17) and Eve (16) a colossal fortune estimated by Forbes in 2011, at seven billion dollars and more surprising a yacht under construction.

After six years of design and construction, and years of rumors, the luxury motor yacht Steve Jobs commissioned and helped French product designer Philippe Starck make has finally slipped into an anonymous Dutch backwater, at a shipyard in North Holland. The beautiful ship is called “Venus,” and Job’s widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, was there for the launch with Jobs’s three children.

The yacht’s design is directly inspired by Apple. It measures 230 to 260 foot long and features a luxurious sun terrace with a large jacuzzi. Venus is steered by 27 iMacs in its control room. It has a lightweight aluminum exterior and its large paned windows are not unlike those seen in Apple stores. The superyacht has a long white hull with a row of circular portholes just above the water line and two glass-walled cabins on the top deck, one on top of the other.

Starck said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press that he is “proud of Venus as he feels it reflects Steve Jobs expectation and vision.”

Isaacson wrote that Jobs, who long battled pancreatic cancer, was conscious of the fact that he may never see the finished yacht, but wanted it completed anyway. “I know that it’s possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half built boat,” he said, referring to his wife. “But I have to keep going on it. If I don’t, it’s an admission that I’m about to die.”

As a final glance, Jobs’ family gave out custom iPod Shuffle mp3 players to each of the crew members who helped build the yacht. Each one came with a note thanking them for their ‘hard work and craftsmanship.’
