October 28, 2012: More than a year after Steve Jobs’ death, the luxury yacht he commissioned is finally shown off for the first time, launched from a shipyard in North Holland.
Called Venus, the distinctive-looking yacht was one of the big personal projects Jobs pursued in his last years of life. As he told biographer Walter Isaacson, “I have to keep going on it. If I don’t, it’s an admission that I’m about to die.”
Sadly, he never lived to see the finished vessel.
