The custom yacht, with a high-tech interior featuring Apple Products, journeyed from Papeete to Cairns. Billionairess Laurene Powell, worth $14.2 billion, acquired the yacht after Steve Jobs died in 2011 and used the fabulous pleasure craft to cruise around famous destinations. It was like a Jobs family tradition to vacation aboard luxurious yachts every summer.

Steve Jobs once shared with Venus’s interior designer, Philippe Starck, “Every year, we go on vacation on my friend Larry Ellison’s boat ($130 million superyacht Musashi). And every year, I say to myself, I too should have a boat built. But I don’t do it. Two years ago, I decided I was going to go for it. I looked at everything, asked everyone, and came to the conclusion that only one person can do it: you.”
