VENUS THE IPHONE OF YACHTS- THE LAST PROJECT OF A GENIUS-STEVE JOBS-“VENUS” APPLE FOUNDER´s YACHT, DOCKS IN PALMA DE MALLORCA-LAST JOBS´s MASTERPIECE
These days In Club de Mar, Palma de Mallorca is docked a stunning yacht «Venus», the Apple founder´s yacht,Steve Jobs and in which participated the famous french arquitecter Phillipe Starck.
The last Steve Jobs´s masterpiece, the Venus was built by Feadship shipyards in Aalsmeer, Netherlands.
When Steve Jobs´s biography came out ( written by Walter Isaacson). The writer unveiled that Jobs started working on the design of the Venus after spending one of the best vacations of his life on a private cruise.
Jobs declared «I know that it’s possible I will die and leave Laurene (his wife) 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”
Unfortunately, It happened and Steve Jobs could not see his yacht fulfilled, He died a year before the Venus was finished. Venus was launched on 28 october 2012.
Loyal to Jobs´s style, we have a refined and minimalist design, straight lines with wooden flat roofs without any ornament. And of course Venus looks a bite like an Apple store, with huge windows, that catch the eye, glass walls 40 feets wide and 10 feets high.
Jobs ordered the chief engineer of Apple´s stores to design a special glass type for the Venus Windows, to be able to provide structural support for the boat.
Venus is 260 feets long and aluminum hulled, its cost was 138 million euros. And how could it be otherwise the yacht equipped with the latest in Apple technology, the yatch is governed by seven 27”Imac on row in its cockpit.
For Steve Jobs, design was always an obsession in Apple products, and Venus considered the Iphone of yachts, could not be less, so for the interiors design, Steve Jobs chose the famous French architect Philippe Starck.
In Mallorca, Philippe Starck is related with the world of sailing and yachts, as he has contributed to the design of the new docking area in Marina Port Adriano, with his innovative lamps and bollards.
Steve Jobs is considered the God of Computers design and hence the name of the yatch, Venus, a roman goddess, the goddess of beauty and love.
The last Jobs´s masterpiece is these days docked in the waters of the bay of Palma, in Club de Mar.
