I hope the crew can't access Facebook or Twitter from those iMacs while they are sailing:

This ship obviously sacrificed some aesthetics in order to maximize deck space.. I think it's an interesting design but wouldn't be my first choice (if I was a billionaire).

If you stand back a bit and look at the lower, mid, and upper deck structure from midship back there is something. To me it is a very "Zen Like" design. The aft structures do have a Buddhist Temple type appearance to their shape and sizing. It is a very minimalistic design. Very much like Steve's House. And, there is no way Steve would build a boat that does not haul ass. In time the details will come out. This baby will go.

Looks like a barge designed by Mies van der Rohe. The iMacs look pretty stoopid in a wheelhouse

It's a very cold and vacant looking vessel. No warmth, no soul.

Steve was good at grinding noses, so to speak.

Man is that thing FUGLY. It looks boxy instead of sleek.

And the idea that three people will consume such ostentatious wealth, merely for their luxury entertainment, is sickening.

It's not a roundrec! The video has been removed by the user. I would like to see a video of the christening ceremony and a couple images of other parts of the ship, but most importantly, one of it at sea.

Very misleading without a view from the front. I'm guessing it's only 4 feet thin. It'll tip over!

Nice yacht with new iMacs. Unfortunately Steve did not get to enjoy it before he passed out

They will simply travel to the iYacht store and the friendly Genius will be happy to do it for you - for a fee.

I'm not sure why you think something like this is ugly.



It looks sleek and well-proportioned, with lots of usable space. And a helipad too!

The glare off those iMacs should be a help to the captain and his crew.

Cheers to all the suckers who camped out in line to help pay for that.

I just came up with a interesting idea for a unique Apple store idea. A floating Apple Store that could go to areas of the world (that are relatively safe) that don't have a Apple store in the country/region. Of course, you would need a small army to protect such valuable stock.
