Steve Jobs' Yacht Seized As Heirs Won't Pay

Tyler Durden's picture





 

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...

No written contract?   Sorry Starck, but amateurs don't get paid.  And when you're talking "grown-up money", you need to have a contract.  Now go back to design-fag land and have a good cry.   The Jobs clan is going to rip your balls off, and they won't be wrong.   They should sell it to some Saudi prince anyway.  It's an ugly boat.

Dude you are out of line.  If the guy performed services at an agreed upon price he should get paid.  They had a gentlemen's agreement.  Sad those arent honored anymore.  You think they guy should get screwed because he didnt have a peice of paper?  Enjoy your Obamaphone you freeloader.

How do you know they had "a oral contract"?  Did you witness it? You see, Jobs is conveniently unable to confirm or deny it.

All you lawyer types trying to get something for free.  The boat was not created from an immaculate conception.  Someone actually had to do something.  If there was an agreement between Jobbs, no dought there is an e-mail or two at least.  I am positive this thing was not designed and build via some secret hand shake.  IF the guy legitimately built that boat, he has a lean and a right to be compensated.

The article has said that it was "an oral agreement". Therefore, there are no paper or electronics trails to substantiate the claim.

By the way, you own me $100M per our oral agreement. How soon will you fulfill your contractual obligations?

Maybe they are,  I wouldn't assume the type A micromanager of his entire domain Steve Jobs would allow open ended multi million dollar "gentleman's agreement" for a boat he was working on for decades to be "fixed" by his heirs,  it's not like the builders didn't know he was terminal and could expire at any minute.

Jobs wouldn't do that, I'm sure he prepaid for everything.

You dont know there is no proof.  I do know the boat is real and someone through the sweat of their back built it.  If some lawyer is able to cheat the boat builder out of his work, it is another tick in the column of the lawyers ruined everything.

I love boats - but that thing makes my eyes hurt. It does not even look seaworthy, immagine being offshore with a following sea....that fat arse would not make for a comfortable or even controlable ride.

Looks lightly built too, perhaps to enable the chineese galley slaves to work up decent speed with the oars. The portals for the oars are clearly visible just above the waterline, at least the guests on the upper decks will not have to see the rowing slaves.

This, rather, is floating performance review, and worse, one that gives YOUR eyes an "unsatisfactory" rating.

Faith restored in crazy ZH-ers! Upvotes to all who recognize that this boat was clearly designed by someone who hates boats. You can be conservative, liberal, a gun nut, or a tree hugger, gold crazy , or a troll.

The only thing that really crosses the line for me is someone who doesn't get what a boat is supposed to look like... That is truly off the range..

Just like all other apple products; an example of obsession with design screwing up the true potential of the function. They should be forced to park this piece of shit in front of the apple main office. And have their design staff act out scenes from the Titanic movie as this "ship", goes down with the stock..

I wouldn't fish for cod in the Bering sea off this shitbox.  WB7 can't even make this catastrophe look worse.

Jobs' heirs proving that being an asshole is an heritable trait.  Hope it gets sold at a lienholder's auction for 4 million, 3 for the designer and 1 mil left over to split among the greedy shitheads.

Maybe BFI will buy it & retro fit it. It'd be a great garbage scow. They could name it iTrash.

For his sake, hope it's not Siri controlled...

Considering the circumstances that doesn't matter.

Those gun banning f***ing scum in Hollywood can always use this POS "boat" for a remake of the "classic" Houseboat with Fairy Grant and Sophia Loren.

Damn she was hot.  I bet even Fairy Grant got wood with her.

God that iBoat is a real POS.  My guess is Phillippe Strack probably did design it because it is so damn ugly.  Built with Chinese slave labor money.

You can't fault the designer for not getting anything in writing (not even an E-mail). He had no reason to believe his "oral contract" wouldn't be fulfilled. Jobs death was so sudden and unexpected it caught everyone off guard!

I swear to G-d that I did not know who Steve Jobs was when I read the headline.  I thought he might be related to the Apple guy though. History will forget almost everyone.

Starck thought Jobs was his FRIEND?

No such thing in Steve's world.

Monsewer Starck is a commercial architect designer, works on very large commercial and exotic projects all around the world, with very serious, business-like clients. There is no way his office would allow him to do anything if the fee agreement was not watertight. Unless he was doing this as a freebie for a friend.

I seriously doubt he was the boat 'designer', more like the stylist on top (that is why it looks like a barge not a boat).

Now we know what happens when you hire a brick layer to design a boat.
