Just a few days after the one year anniversary of Steve Jobs’ passing, a giant yacht which Steve commissioned has been finished. The yacht was built by Dutch boat building company Feadship and it has some very unique Apple features.
Read on to see more pictures and a video.
“Venus” is the name of the super yacht Jobs commissioned and helped design back in 2009 and its 78 metres long. The all aluminum vessel recently slipped into Dutch waters with Jobs’ family there to witness its beauty.
The following pictures from nbr show the simply gorgeous design.
As you can see from the pictures, the boat almost looks like an Apple store on water, the exterior design seems to carry the same impeccable values as the Apple products do.
There is very little knowledge of what the interior looks like, but what I can show you is the very unique control room.
The ship is controlled using a set of 27-inch iMacs, now that’s classy.
According to Walter Isaacson, Jobs was conscious that he may not be alive by the time the boat is finished, but he wanted it to be completed.
“I know that it’s possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half built boat, but I have to keep going on it. If I don’t, it’s an admission that I’m about to die.”
The completion of this yacht around the one year anniversary of his death is very appropriate, a white dove is often released as a sign of love.
In my eyes, this yacht is a giant white dove, showcasing the superior design skills and ideas of the great man.
