Steve Job’s Yacht Impounded
Venus, the minimalist high-tech yacht commissioned by the late Apple founder Steve Jobs, has become embroiled in a row over a disputed bill.
French designer Philippe Starck claims Mr Jobs’ heirs still owe him 3m euros of a 9m euro fee for the project, according to Dutch paper Het Financieele Dagblad.
Mr Starck called in the debt collectors and had the yacht impounded,
The Port of Amsterdam confirmed that the boat is not allowed to leave.
Jeroen Ranzijn, spokesman for the Port of Amsterdam told the BBC: “The boat is brand new but there is a 3m euro claim on it. The parties will have to fight it out.”
IMHO, one of Jobs’ greatest accomplishments was not being perceived as some greedy wealthy man!
