Venus is a super yacht designed by Philippe Starck's design company Ubik and built by Feadship for the entrepreneur Steve Jobs at a cost of €105 million. Jobs died in October 2011, a year before the yacht was unveiled.
The yacht was impounded 21 December 2012 at the Port of Amsterdam following a payment dispute: Starck claimed Jobs' heirs owed him €3 million of his €9 million fee for the project. The dispute was resolved after a few days.
