Steve Jobs' Yacht

Hmmm. It's just not working for me. Looks more like a barge designed by Frank Lloyd Wright than a boat to my eye.

Is eye-catching, but has no eye-appeal. ... Weird.

Doesn't look good to me.
You would think he would have had it made in the USA.

I thought it was the latest model in the Great Harbor series.

For someone who had such good design aesthetics for computers, smartphones, MP3 players, tablets, etc, his boat design is horrible. Be a good building, probably, in the right setting. But on the water the thing is a bad dream. Venus indeed. It's about as un-Venus-like as one could imagine.

Now that Jobs is gone I wonder what will happen to this thing? I won't be surprised if it ends up parked in some harbor, unloved and abandonned like the famous Puget Sound ferry Kalakala. At least the Kalakala has a cool design (by a Boeing engineer). Looks like all Jobs and his marine architect had in the desk drawer was a ruler and a right triangle.

Looked up the Kalakala. Reminds me a lot of the Admiral which was a familiar sight on the Mississippi in St Louis when I lived there. SS Admiral - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As the wiki article says, it's now scrap, and from the photos of the Kalakala it's not far behind.

As for Jobs' boat, it'll probably wind up in the hands of a Middle-east oil sheik.

And now the designer actually wants more money for this abomination. If he had any sense he'd hide somewhere.

Venus could have been named the iSore.

Not mine originally but I did correct the spelling from another post (It was iSoar)

Cheers,
