The luxury yacht Venus was built at Feadship for Apple founder Steve Jobs. When the superyacht was delivered in 2012, it was rumored to have cost more than EUR 100 million. The yacht was designed by Jobs himself. Together with famous designer Philippe Starck.
On delivery of the yacht, there was a legal dispute about payment. It became known that Starck earned a US$ 9 million fee with the project.
The Feadship boat can accommodate 12 guests and has a crew of 22. She has a length of 78 meters. She is said to have a minimalist interior.
However not much is known about this interior and there are no interior photos available. We only found some photos which show a bit of the inside of the beach club. (See hereunder.)
She is powered by 2 MTU engines. Which bring her a top speed of 20.5 knots. Her cruising speed is 18 knots.
He Died before delivery
Jobs was aware he might not live to see the boat launched. But he continued to involve with its design. He died before the delivery of the yacht.
The Venus yacht is now owned by his widow Laurene Powell Jobs. In August 2015, Venus visited Monaco Marine for a refit.
The yacht’s owner is Laurene Powell Jobs.
