Steve Jobs had been working with minimalist designer Philippe Starck to build the perfect, streamlined yacht of his dreams. Now Starck says that Jobs never fully paid for the entire project. The entire cost of this yacht was over $130 million and it’s around 260 ft long. When you look at the yacht you can see Steve Jobs minimalistic yacht design mixed with his infamous Apple simplicity. For navigation, he uses 27 inch Apple monitors, which you would assume, but still an awesome touch.
“The project has been going since 2007 and there had been a lot of detailed talk between Jobs and Starck,” a lawyer representing Starck’s company told Reuters. “These guys trusted each other, so there wasn’t a very detailed contract.”
Details of Jobs’ plans for the yacht first surfaced in Walter Isaacson’s biography of him, which was released shortly after Jobs passed away last year. “I know that it’s possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half-built boat,” Jobs told Isaacson. “But I have to keep going on it. If I don’t, it’s an admission that I’m about to die.”
