One of the last projects Steve Jobs worked on before his passing was an 80-meter yacht that was co-designed by renowned designer Philippe Starck. Steve Jobs somehow knew that he will never live to see the completion of the yacht. The yacht, dubbed as Venus, was eventually finished in October this year. It was built by the Dutch company Feadship. If you’re wondering where the yacht is right now, the Financial Times is reporting that yacht is still in the Port of Amsterdam and under a court order.
Apparently Philippe Starck is claiming that Jobs still owes him some money for his work. Starck says that Steve Jobs owed him around $3.96 million or €3 million, or roughly six percent of the total cost of the yacht. Starck adds that the overall worth of the yacht is $198 million or €150 million. Meanwhile, the Jobs family is saying that the yacht is worth $139 million or €105 million. The yacht will remain in the port of Amsterdam until the dispute is resolved.
