Jobs family yacht spotted en route to US

Marks end to dispute over design fees

A yacht designed for late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been spotted near Tenerife in the Canary Islands, says 9to5Mac. The boat appears to be on its way to the US from Amsterdam, where it had been impounded in a fee dispute between the Jobs family and lead designer Philippe Starck. In late December, though, the two parties came to an agreement and the yacht was allowed to leave port.

The yacht, named Venus, is built primarily out of aluminum and glass. In keeping with its original intended owner, the ship uses iMacs to handle virtually every onboard system. Jobs was instrumental in the ship's planning; he died before it could be completed however, and it fell to his widow, Laurene Powell-Jobs, to meet with Starck to finish the project.
