Steve Jobs' Yacht Seized As Heirs Won't Pay
Steve Jobs' EUR150mm yacht has been confiscated by a court in Amsterdam following Jobs' heirs decision not to pay the designer of the boat. As Holland's Nu.nl reports, the famous designer Philippe Starck had an 'agreement' with Steve Jobs that he would receive 6% of the price (or EUR9mm) of creating the yacht as his payment for designing the epic 80-meter, 27-iMac-controlled behemoth. Unfortunately, the 'agreement' was not on paper as the two men were 'friends' and so the heirs to Steve Jobs fortune have decided that the EUR6mm that Starck has received is quite enough. The yacht remains moored in the Port of Amsterdam under bailiff control. Must be a tough life eh?
To us - the boat looks a little too 'Lego', but still...
