Steve Job's Superyacht Gets Christened 'Venus', Sets Sail

October 29, 2012


This is 'Venus', the aluminum superyacht designed by Steve Jobs over the last few years of his life. It's super, and it's a yacht. Construction was just recently finished, and the boat was christened 'Venus' during a ceremony with Jobs' family present. Admittedly, it does kind of look like the kind of boat Apple would make. The specs, Google translated from Dutch and NOT jibberish like I first though:

Employees who have worked on the ship OMT told that the ship between 70 and 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. Behind the portholes are the quarters of the crew. At the stern hatches which are smaller (speed) boat back down to the country to achieve when a port is too small for the ship. The control of the hunting is done from seven 27-inch iMacs in the wheelhouse.

You did good, Steve. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to call that the base of my nefarious world-conquering operations. Right now I'm operating out of a tree fort. It's not bad, but it's a little far from the house to hear my mom when she's calling me for dinner. Last week I missed spaghetti night :(

Hit the jump for some more shots, including the seven iMac wheelhouse, and a video.







Thanks to Dean, who just finished construction of his not-so-superyacht. Dean? That's a dinghy.
