The designer needs that money because after such ugly thing he wont get any real job for the rest of his life.

I'm more interested in how they manage to get it built for one third the proposed budget. Even considering the European economy, that's still quite a savings.

I'm guessing there are some receipts down the back of someone's sofa. Along with some small change, a biro pen, 3 socks (all different designs/sizes) and at least one of either peanuts, potato chips or mini pretzels.

I don't get the hate for it. It's beautiful and unique. The wood/aluminum contrast is really cool.

So we get a silly yacht story (that some can spin as Steve Jobs being a cheap you know what) but no stories like this: http://beta.fool.com/jaans/2012/12/2...gyholnk0000001 Is that too positive for MacRumors to report on? Sigh...

Taxes for rich people are very high in France so he 'll need every penny. As an alternative, he could emmigrate to Belgium.

Wow. That's a yacht of money. Hopefully, boat sides can come together and sea if they can work this out.

If the Jobs family does not want it, I will purchase it. I am not sure where I will park it, My driveway does not have the space and I am sure, it has a big trailer. (Can you imagine how embarrassed you would be if, you put it in the water, then realized, you forgot to put in the plug?)

Does anyone else think this seems odd? Jobs was a master at business negotiations and protecting Apple and yet he hires this guy to design his yacht with no formal contract?

Surprisingly ugly yacht for a man who had an exceptional sense of style.

It looks like a floating business park. Not surprising considering this was a man who loved to work.

Not saying the designer actually did this, but due to the conflict of interest you'd think the purchaser would prefer a fixed fee.
You would think he should be sueing the shipyard for coming in under budget.

"6% of the cost price" Really. So which one then, cost, or price?

So this guy organises a contract based on a percentage of the build cost of the yacht. Then when it actually costs less to build than he thought he gets pissed. Should have negotiated a fixed fee.

Typical designer; no contract.

Ya know, I've only seen side views of that boat.
I'm wondering if it's really really thin.

Of course! My reply was in support to yours and as a demonstration of disregard to racist comments.
