Steve Jobs’ Apple inspired super yacht revealed at Feadship Yard

Images and video of a brand new Feadship have been published by Dutch Apple blog One More Thing (via The Verge).
They show a sleek, minimalistic vessel that shares an aesthetic very much on par with the products Steve Jobs’ had a hand in creating at Apple.
It was well established that Jobs had designed a superyacht together with Philippe Starck.
First mentioned by Jobs’ biographer Walter Isaacson in 2011 the question is could this be the yacht they were all talking about?
It seems the answer is yes because After a quick denialfrom Apple, Starck confirmedthat the “product” was in fact the super yacht Venus that was launched in Aalsmeer by Dutch custom ship builder Feadship with the Jobs’ family on-hand for the unveiling.
According to reports, the 80-metre yacht has huge plate windows that adorn the wheelhouse, saloon and main deck entrances, giving the ship a clean, open appearance.
Continuing the spartan styling inside, the wheelhouse uses seven 27-inch iMacs running navigation, systems control and other seafaring software to assist in operating Venus.
Not much is known of the cabin arrangement or number of crew needed to sail her.
As a gesture of gratitude, each worker involved with the ship’s construction at Feadship was given an iPod shuffle with a Venus engraving, along with a note from the Jobs family thanking them for their craftsmanship.
