Steve Jobs’ 256-foot Feadship Squeezes Through Simpson Bay Bridge [VIDEO]

Serving as a gateway to the Caribbean for countless superyachts, the Simpson Bay Bridge in St Maarten has surely seen its fair share of dings and scratches from passing vessels. Watch as Steve Jobs’ 256-foot Feadship Venus clears the famous bridge with mere inches to spare. No doubt a great example of captaining and crew work was involved.

    Nice “job” for sure, and I am not going to say it was easy, but the boat has twin engines and a bow thruster and there were many feet to spare, “not mere inches” as was written, on either side. As long as it was slack tide and had no current or wind, it was really not that remarkable. What is remarkable is whether or not Steve Jobs was driving it. Wait a minute! Why does the late entrepreneur still have a yacht! The big deal here is that one day, cameras on drones will be a constant and everyday occurrence. This is just the beginning, and we will never go back (never say never..) to a day when drones are not everywhere. Thanks!

    Im sorry but that’s not tight at all. My kid could have brought that boat through that bridge. Try an 80 ft wide barge through an 81 ft wide bridge. With 135,000 bbls of gasoline. Geeze.
