Steve Jobs’ Yacht Launched in The Netherlands

Steve Jobs‘ yacht was unveiled in a Dutch shipyard on Sunday. The yacht is named “Venus,” after the Roman goddess of love.

According to OneMoreThing a Dutch website, the finished ship was launched in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands, more than one year since Steve Jobs’ death. Jobs’s widow Laurene Powell Jobs and three of their children, Reed, Aaron and Eve, were at the launching ceremony. The ship builders were each gifted an iPod shuffle with the ship’s name inscribed on the back, along with a note thanking them for their hard work and craftsmanship.

The enormous yacht is between 70 and 79 meters long, as described in Steve Jobs biography. It’s an extraordinary vessel with teak decks and large panes of ceiling-to-floor glass throughout. The boat is said to have seven 27-inch iMacs on board. The Yacht is designed by Philippe Starck. Watch the video below.
