Before he died, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs spent years working on a top-secret, state-of-the-art project that has finally been revealed: a luxury yacht.
The boat, named Venus, was designed by Jobs, aided by French designer Phillipe Starcke, and was built by Feadship in Aalsmeer, Holland, according to The Atlantic Wire.

It measures somewhere between 70 and 80 meters, but is faster and lighter than a typical yacht because it’s made out of aluminum. The yacht also boasts a huge sun deck with built-in jacuzzi and an all-glass cabin that holds seven 27-inch iMacs that direct the navigation and controls.
The Atlantic Wire also noted that the design made the boat look a bit like an Apple product
“When you take a step back, squint a little and turn your head to the left, it sort of looks like an iPhone 4 with the strip of windows around the middle and the clean lines,” Adam Clark Estes wrote.

According to Water Isaacson’s biography on Jobs, the visionary had been working on the yacht for six years. It now goes to his family, including widow Laurene, who reportedly christened the boat with a party where they presented the shipbuilders with iPod Shuffles engraved with the word “Venus” on the back.
Jobs died in October 2011 from respiratory arrest after battling pancreatic cancer. He was 56.
