By now, the world knows that the late Steve Jobs commissioned Venus and died before her completion. That much was revealed in his biography and verified by designer Philippe Starck. People either love or hate Venus’ super-streamlined, super-modern styling. “It’s a naked boat,” Henk de Vries of Feadship told Bloomberg news. “It is removing everything that is considered unnecessary, and bringing the boat down to the bare essentials.” Without naming Jobs, De Vries added that he was a tough customer. De Vries also addressed the concerns some people raised about the yacht having floor-to-ceiling glass walls lining her decks, but she crossed the Atlantic on her own bottom with no issues. Venus was at the Rybovich marina in West Palm Beach, Florida, as of this writing.
