Steve Jobs' estate pays for impounded super yacht

Steve Jobs' estate pays for impounded super yacht The estate of the late Apple founder paid to finally resolve a dispute that had Steve Jobs' super yacht impounded in Amsterdam.
'Venus,' as the ship is named, had been impounded by designer Philippe Starck, over a dispute about payments.

"The Venus is no longer impounded, we have found a solution," says Gerard Moussault, a lawyer for the Jobs estate. "A security deposit was paid into a bank account, but I cannot say for how much."

At 70-meters, the vessel cost 100 million euros to build, with Starck fighting over 3 million euros he was still owed for his contribution to its glorious design.

Jobs never got to use the yacht, as it was completed one year after his death. Widow Laurene Powell Jobs and their three children Reed, Erin and Eve will become captains of the ship once it reaches the States.

As expected, the interior features some Apple products, with the bridge control panel being made up of seven iMacs.
