Venus is a super yacht designed by Philippe Starck's design company Ubik and built by Feadship for the entrepreneur Steve Jobs. However, Jobs died in October 2011, the yacht was unveiled a year later at a cost of more than €100 million.
The yacht was impounded on 21 December 2012 at the Port of Amsterdam following a dispute over payment. The designer, Philippe Starck, claimed that Jobs' heirs owed him €3 million of his €9 million fee for the project. The yacht was only impounded for a few days after a solution to the dispute was found.
