Steve Jobs' yacht has made its first appearance in the Dutch city of Aalsmeer, a year after his death.
Apparently, the photographs first appeared on One More Thing and seem to match Walter Isaacson's description of the vessel in Steve Jobs biography, The Verge has reported.
"After our omelets at the café, we went back to his house and he showed me all of the models and architectural drawings. As expected, the planned yacht was sleek and minimalist. The teak decks were perfectly flat and unblemished by any accoutrements. As at an Apple store, the cabin windows were large panes, almost floor to ceiling, and the main living area was designed to have walls of glass that were forty feet long and ten feet high. He had gotten the chief engineer of the Apple stores to design a special glass that was able to provide structural support. By then the boat was under construction by the Dutch custom yacht builders Feadship, but Jobs was still fiddling with the design. "I know that it’s possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half-built boat," he said. "But I have to keep going on it. If I don’t, it’s an admission that I’m about to die."
Those working on the yacht named "Venus," have reportedly received a special iPod Shuffle with the boat's name engraved on the back and a card from the Jobs family that thanks them stating: "For your hard work and craftsmanship."
Jobs' family is on-hand for unveiling the super yacht featuring a lightweight aluminum exterior measuring 80 meters long.
The interesting aspect for many avid technology enthusiasts is that the yacht appears to be controlled by a six of the seven 27-inch iMacs that are set up in the yacht's control room or wheelhouse.
The ship measuring 230 to 260 feet long and, sporting designs similar to Jobs' electronics, features a hull built entirely of aluminum. A large pane of glass runs around the ship's side, starting at right around the midpoint of the vessel and wrapping around the boat's bow, PCMagazine has stated.
