Jobs’s estate pays up for superyacht

Written by Nick Farrell



Paid a deposit to the designer


Steve Jobs’ estate has paid a deposit to the designer of the late Apple messiah’s superyacht.

The yacht, called Venus, is apparently free leave Amsterdam port on Monday after the late Apple co-founder's estate paid a deposit to resolve a dispute with designer Philippe Starck. Gerard Moussault, a Hague-based lawyer for the Jobs estate said that the Venus was no longer impounded.

"A security deposit was paid into a bank account, but I cannot say for how much," Moussault said.

Last week French designer Starck last week asked Amsterdam bailiffs to seize the sleek 70-metre yacht. The Venus cost more than $127 million to build, was impounded after Starck said Jobs's estate still owed him three million euros for his contribution to its design.

Sadly the Venus is still stuck in Amsterdam harbour because of bad weather. When things start to improve it will be shipped by another ship to the United States, where Jobs's family, including widow Laurene Powell Jobs and their three children Reed, Erin and Eve, are to take charge of her.

The bridge features a control panel made up of an array of seven iMac computers which could be a little worrying, particularly if it relies on iMaps to find where it is going.
