Seeing this story makes me think of an animated gif with Harrison Ford that can't be used here because of the no swear rule.

I'd be much happier on a sailboat. Either that, or an ocean-going ship. I thought it was cool as @#$% crisscrossing the planet on a Navy ship when I was in my late teens/early twenties.

Transported by ship?

I thought it was a ship - can't it make it across the Atlantic on its own?

Anyway, why do these TMZ-calibre articles keep getting posted here?

Apple prepares my iMac for shipping to the Netherlands, Netherlands prepares Venus for shipping. Fair deal. Case closed.

Ever see those 18-wheelers carrying like 8 cars? Same concept. No one wants "miles" on their new toy before they get it. Plus, it's probably cheaper. Nor does it probably have the capability of traveling across the Atlantic pretty easily.

The percentages were likely in the contract. The disagreement was over how much it cost to actually build the thing. And it's not like there is one receipt that the family could show Stark, a project like this would probably have more contractors involved than most buildings.

I hope they put it to good use, or sell it to someone who will.

It's like a Frank Lloyd Wright house: significant in its uniqueness and boldness of concept.
You're right, it is gorgeous. I've been around boats/ships my entire life. It combines functionality with beauty, and is built simply as it should be. The vertical bow, the swooping lines midship, combined with the wood trim and glass is very nice. Not too sure about the iPad style upper decks, but i get it...

Is this is a boating forum? Who cares about the yacht? Steve is dead.... Deal with it people! I miss the days of old when we cared about computers. I love me iPhone / iPad but to me the PC is not dead even if Apple thinks it. People move on from the boat!!!

This is a gorgeous vessel.

My own preference leans more toward sailing craft, but for a motor craft, this one is just stunning. The Apple design aesthetic is palpable here, with the glass, wood, and aluminum look.

Good show!

Who cares? Is it really ruining your day when the site talks about Jobs' yacht?

Here's a taste....

...although it's more of a "boxing video".


This one's fun too...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hX9OCcfzIBg

...it's a clever film that shows the crew working on the hull of a yacht while it's in the moving "dry-dock".

Not funny. The stern was not designed to compensate for "following seas"
A storm or rogue wave could have an unfortunate outcome.

I woder what kind of fuel economy this vessel gets? With both Steve and Laurene so environmentally conscience, I'm sure this runs on some type of alternative fuel. Or not.
