iPhone 5 Captures Steve Jobs’s Super Yacht On Camera [Video]

Want to see Steve Jobs’s new super-yacht up close and live in the riveted flesh? Well, here’s the next best thing: a vdeo taken by Amsterdam-best investor Michiel Frackers of the Venus, a vessel which will soon be leaving port after a misunderstanding about the terms of payment between Jobs’s family and the ship’s designer Phillipe Starck was resolved.

According to Fracker:

“On the day after Christmas my girlfriend and I went to take a look. We walked through the fields to get to the former container terminal where Venus was docked. There were a few people on board cleaning the upper deck, but there was nobody else around. We took some pictures and shot this video with an iPhone 5. It’s a very unique design that looks much better up close than in pictures or even in a video.

Certainly looks less tacky than most yachts to my eyes. What do you think?

    That is one nice yacht! Better than any other yacht out there. Can’t wait for more pictures of exterior/interior (if possible!)

    Not my cup of tea but I’ll bet it will be considered timeless in 10 years still. It’s probably the most well known yacht in the world now.
