Steve Jobs was known for ambitious projects and his last one was a superyacht, named Venus. BBuiltby Feadship and designed by the renowned Philippe Stark, Job’s Super Yacht is worth 100 million euros.
Launched in 2012, one year after the death of Steve Jobs, photos with a glimpse of superyacht interior Venus were never taken before. Until now. Steve Jobs 256-foot-long superyacht caused waves both in the water and online when it was spotted near the British Virgin Islands this past weekend, finally giving a closer and real look of the work developed by the designer Philippe Stark and Feadship.
The Apple founder enlisted the expertise of designer Phillippe Starck to create his one-of-a-kind sailing paradise. Additionally, he hired the chief designer of the Apple Stores to make structural glass for the yacht. Venus’ Super Yacht is crafted with strong aluminum and still, and a row of 27-inch iMacs are used by the ship’s captain to navigate in the wheelhouse.
Philippe Starck spoke about creating Venus in an interview with French Vanity Fair last year, revealing that the superyacht contains six bedrooms and a home automation system to communicate between the kids’ living quarters in the front of the ship, and the adult quarters in the back – so there would be no need for yelling. In Starck’s words:
Steve wanted to be sure that the teenagers could be set up in the front of the boat when he was at the back and vice-versa. He was obsessed with silence. In his home, children did not make noise, nor the dog, nor his wife … no one made any noise, ever.
Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, maintains ownership of the yacht, which clearly has Steve Jobs’ magic touch.
