Steve Jobs Yacht

Officials in Amsterdam have impounded a yacht that late Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs commissioned back in 2007 after Jobs’ estate allegedly missed payments to its architect. Reuters reports that yacht designer Philippe Starck claims that he has only received €6 million of the €9 million owed for his commission and that Dutch authorities are holding the yacht “in Amsterdam port pending payment by lawyers representing Jobs’ estate.” Jobs never got a chance to ride on the yacht, named “Venus,” before his passing in 2011, but Starck’s attorney said that his client and Jobs frequently talked about the boat’s design over the span of four years.
