Steve Jobs ‘Venus’ yacht seen in Aalsmeer, Netherlands

The legacy of Steve Jobs shows no signs of slowing down.  Eric Slivka over at MacRumors published a story on the Venus yacht saying “Earlier this year, it was revealed that French designer Philippe Starck was working with Dutch shipbuilder Feadship on a new yacht for the family of Steve Jobs. The yacht had been mentioned in Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs as a project he had been working on since 2009, but the ship was not completed before his death last year.

Dutch website One More Thing said that the Venus boat was launched with Job’s widow Laurene Powell Jobs and their three children present at the event. The aluminum hulled ship was said to be close to 80 meters in length and has seven 27 inch iMac computers inside, in the wheelhouse to help run the ship controls.
