Back in 2009, the late Steve Jobs commissioned minimalist designer and architect Philippe Starck to collaborate with him on a mega yacht project. 

The results of that collaboration, one year after Jobs’s death, were revealed at the official launch ceremony in the Netherlands.  The ceremony was attended by Jobs’s widow Laurene and three of his children, who christened the boat ‘Venus’, after the Roman goddess of love.

The enormous vessel - which measures up to 80 metres long - is made out of super-lightweight aluminium. According to the Dutch website OneMoreThing, it was launched by shipbuilder Koninklijke De Vries in Aalsmeer, in the Netherlands.
