News has come that Steve Jobs’ yacht, “Venus,” has set sail en route to her new home in the United States. She is currently located in the main port of Tenerife, off of Morocco in the Canary Islands, and one can only assume that she is preparing to venture across the Atlantic ocean. Although all Feadship yachts are impressive, this yacht has a unique profile that makes yachting enthusiasts take a second look. At 230, and with lots of windows nestled into the crisp profile, this yacht lives up to the modern influence that the owner’s company has cast into the world. The “glass helm” has a stunning layout and all systems can be monitored, controlled, and displayed through the seven iMac displays in the helm. Aside from the screens you will find a throttle, rudder control, and a few other simple controls (like a mouse for the computers) but this proves to be one of the cleanest helm layouts that I’ve ever seen. Cleverly, above the helm deck, the navigation equipment has been covertly concealed behind walls which make the yacht have a consistent style from the water line all the way to the very top.
Aside from all the publicity circulating around “Venus,” Feadship also received a lot of praise in 2012 in regard to the 287′ Feadship “Musashi.” “Musashi” is the winner of the Neptune prize at the ShowBoats design awards. She was also named Best Custom Built Yacht at the Asia Boating Awards as well as received the World Yacht Trophy in Cannes.
