Steve Jobs’ custom-built 260ft yacht Venus that looks just like an Apple store

Sadly, Jobs, who died in October 2011 of complications from pancreatic cancer, never saw his creation finished.

The Venus, a state-of-the-art aluminum superyacht that the Apple founder helped design, was finally completed this month – one year after his death. Jobs employed the chief engineer of his Apple stores to help design special glass that allowed the ship to be installed with ten-foot-high windows across the hull.

Steve Jobs’ final masterpiece was a 260-foot yacht that he worked to design as a state-of-the-art wonder of the high seas.

But the Apple CEO never had a chance to use the eye-catching vessel. It was finally completed by a Dutch shipbuilder this month — one year after his death.

The sleek ship is made of light-weight aluminum and Jobs employed the chief engineer of his Apple stores to help design special glass that allowed the ship to be installed with ten-foot-high windows across the hull.

t is christened Venus, after the Roman goddess of love.
The cost of the superyacht is unknown, though Jobs was obsessed with completing it near the end of his life.

‘I know that it’s possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half-built boat,’ he told biographer Walter Isaacson. ‘But I have to keep going on it. If I don’t, it’s an admission that I’m about to die.’
