According to MacRumors, via Dutch site One More Thing, late Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ Yacht, called Venus, has been launched in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands. Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell Jobs and their three children participated in the christening and the launching of the super yacht Jobs designed with the custom yacht firm Feadship. The aluminum-hulled ship is said to be 70-80 meters in length and features seven 27-inch iMacs lined up in the wheelhouse to help run the controls. Below, watch Venus in action:
Mentioned in the New York Times from Walter Isaacson’s new biography of Steve Jobs, which was released after his death, the late Apple leader was working on creating his very own Feadship superyacht. Jobs didn’t like the normal yacht designs so he decide to design it himself, not a surprise, creating a super luxurious yacht to rival his good friend and fellow yachtsman Larry Ellison.
“The book also offers some tidbits about Mr. Jobs’s legendary attention to detail, which, according to Mr. Isaacson, extended to a luxury yacht that he began designing in 2009. The design is sleek and minimalist, with 40-foot-long glass walls. It is being built in the Netherlands by the custom yacht firm Feadship, the book says.”
