Venus

The modernist divisive superyacht

Design legend Philippe Starck created the super-sleek, modernist exterior of the 78.2 metre Feadship superyacht Venus. Commissioned by Steve Jobs, who passed away before he could take delivery, she was launched in 2012.

Her almost vertical topsides lead to a plumb bow with a gleaming metallic finish. Fittingly for the founder of Apple, her iconic profile is a study in elegant simplicity, with the satellite domes cleverly hidden within her mast. However, this bold, futuristic styling has led many yachting traditionalists to unflatteringly compare Venus to certain domestic appliances.
