How about this?

Glad I could help.

I don't know about the rest of the lubbers on this board, but I know me some basic sea keeping for sure.

Not really of interest - also my opinion.

That's like saying Mac-Mini vs. ProLiant 48-core - who wins?

By the way, I did find out that DYT charges $200k to transport a 140ft yacht across the Atlantic. The Venus would be a lot more.

He's an Octopus kind of guy, not a Venus one.

Octopus, no contest. It also cost half a billion dollars, much larger, with 2 helicopter pads, 3 tenders, and a submarine.

Umm, I think that $200M is more commonly quoted. (And it has 7 tenders and 2 submarines.)

And if you want a minimalist boat to sip champagne and eat canapés while sitting in the marina - the Venus fits the bill. Just like how the Mac Mini is a better choice for many scenarios, even though the 48 core ProLiant will crush it in others.

Of course, if you've ever been on a big boat you'd know that the engine room and the crew's quarters are in the most stable part of the ship.

Try an upper-deck stateroom during a storm....

Meaning I personally wouldn't much fancy trying to sail it across the north Atlantic in wintertime. The thought of looking at a breaking 80-foot wave coming towards those large, unprotected, flat glass panels in the superstructure would scare any sailor accustomed to rough weather.

Instead it will be loaded on a container-ship, or a specialty yacht-transport vessel, and delivered to its destination on the west coast of the United States. And the Jobs family will probably save a lot of money doing it that way.

What an albatross, this thing was once a vision of narcissists dream. Now it's scrap metal.

Very high visibility scrap metal

Better than scrapping, someone could buy it and turn it into an Apple museum, anchored at Fisherman's Wharf....

I'm sure that many fans would pony up a $20 admission fee to spend an hour or two on "the yacht that Steve built", especially if it had some interesting Apple historical trivia in it.

Moving it to the west coast (US) is indeed curious. It could mean for the family not to have a serious interest in it, as it is ideally fitted for the Mediterranean, Adriatic type ports where significant art is in its evironment. It would certainly be a shame to dock it in any marina in California.

A fair number of left-coasters harbor their yachts in the Caribbean. Lots of nice warm water destinations, and a short hop in the Gulfstream to get to the boat.

I can dig this. Of course much better than California.

I was just being funny. You're right, especially if birthed near fisherman's wharf in SF it could be turned into quite an attraction.
