Just a little more than year after his death, Steve Jobs' 250-foot yacht, Venus, has been completed by Feadship, a custom yacht manufacturer in the Netherlands. Much like the products Jobs was renowned for creating, the craft has been built to exacting standards. Much of the design also came from Philippe Starck, a designer known for his minimalism, reports CNN.
Steve Jobs' Yacht features large swathes of floor-to-ceiling windows, teak decks, and is rumored to feature 27-inch iMacs, writes Mashable. At least six of those computers inhabit the bridge, as documented in a picture supplied by the Dutch blog One More Thing.

Prior to his passing, Jobs discussed the boat's design and construction with his biographer, Walter Isaacson. Isaacson wrote of the boat:
"[Jobs] showed me all of the models and architectural drawings. As expected, the planned yacht was sleek and minimalist. The teak decks were perfectly flat and unblemished by any accoutrements.
As at an Apple store, the cabin windows were large panes, almost floor to ceiling, and the main living area was designed to have walls of glass that were forty feet long and ten feet high.
"I know that it's possible I will die and leave Laurene with a half-built boat," [Jobs] said. "But I have to keep going on it. If I don't, it's an admission that I'm about to die."
According to ABC, Jobs commissioned the yacht more than six years ago. Now that it's finally finished, Jobs' family handed out custom-engraved iPod shuffles to thank the builders.
Sadly, Mac fans will have to wait for a chance at outright ownership of the yacht -- as of this writing, Venus isn't for sale.
