Apparently Jobs wrote in his biography that he designed a yacht, called Venus, to sail around the world along with his family.
Yacht Venus came to life at the Koninklijke De Vries shipyard in Aalsmeer and is now scheduled for transportation to the US on a freighter ship.
Dutch media outlets reported that Steve Job’s wife and children witnessed the launching moment on Sunday, 28 October 2012. Also the staff who worked on the ship were invited at the ceremony and they all received a personal gift from Jobs family.
Employees at De Vries said the high-tech yacht is between 70 to 80 meters long. The exterior is entirely made of aluminum so the ship is much lighter than other yachts. A unique feature is the large sun terrace (with Jacuzzi) on the foredeck and the continuous windows in the bow. At the stern there are attached smaller (speed) boats used to reach the land when a harbor is too small for the ship. The control of the yacht is done from seven 27-inch iMacs installed in the wheelhouse.
In Jobs’ biography published by Walter Isaacson, it is stated that Steve spent years designing the yacht. He was helped by French designer Philippe Starck. The design and construction of the yacht took in total six years, according to Dutch source Onemorething.nl.
