  • Steve Jobs' Sea Presence Causing a 'Yacht' of Trouble


    The so-called "superyacht" envisioned by and built for the iconic co-founder of Apple has been impounded according to news out of Amsterdam morning.

    Although the yacht hasn't sunk (too bad I can't say the same for shares of AAPL today), the beautiful boat has been sinking financially if you ask sources close to the matter. Of course, it isn't that there are financial problems behind the yacht. It's that a dispute surrounding an unpaid bill is causing all the motion in the ocean.
    A superyacht built for Apple Inc's late co-founder Steve Jobs has been impounded in Amsterdam because of a dispute over an unpaid bill to designer Philippe Starck, a lawyer said on Friday.
    Jobs, who was never able to use the yacht named Venus - which clearly looks like an Apple product -
    commissioned a designer to make the floating paradise a reality. It reportedly came at a cost of about 100 million euros.

    The yacht will remain in an Amsterdam port "pending payment by lawyers representing Jobs' estate."

      Looks like a design from the 1930's.

      I think it looks pretty slick myself. That glass nose (bow) is cool.

      Why can't I judge it? Do you know me or what I do for a living? Nope!

      whilst its not my cup of tea it's a floating piece of art and breaks away from the traditional super yacht design, if you ever get the chance to go to the South of France you would see what I mean.

      Yeah I must say that it does not appear to be 100 million euros worth.

      I agree with all the people who say its ugly (maybe the picture isn't one of its good side or maybe we shouldn't point the camera directly at it.) I think all those who say its apple like or apple-esque are crazy.
