According to a French newspaper, the yacht has been authorized to leave the port of Amsterdam, where he was detained by the authorities due to the payment of fees. The 80-meter yacht, made ​​of aluminum and called "Venus", has docked in the port since December 8.

According to the French newspaper LeMonde, Steve Jobs's family posted bail to release unspecified mega yacht, equipped with seven iMacs. In the words of Gérard Moussault, attorney representing the heirs of Steve Jobs:

"We found a solution, and bail has been deposited in a bank account to authorize the removal of the yacht harbor."

The French agency Presse, wrote that the heirs of Steve Jobs and Philippe Starck had resolved the dispute out of court. The bond guarantees Starck an unknown part of the sum that the designer considered worth the yacht.

The initial draft of the "Venus" had a budget of 150 million euros. Starck receive 6% of their design work, or approximately 9 million euros. But the value of the ship subsequently re-evaluated, with a price of 105 million euros.

Also, apparently, Jobs and Starck made ​​the deal simply with words and relying on each other, so that there is a detailed contract for the operation, Reuters reported last week.

In any case, the authorities retained the mooring for payment dispute and port companies were instructed not help him out, he wrote Friday.

According to Steve Jobs's biographer, Walter Isaacson, the late CEO of Apple wanted a "minimalist chic" yacht, similar to Apple products. These are the words that Steve Jobs told the writer:

"I know that you may die and leave Laurene with a ship under construction, but I have to go ahead with this project. If I do, it's an admission that I am about to die. "

Isaacson writes in his biography of Steve Jobs:

"The teak decks were perfectly flat and unblemished. As in an Apple store, the windows of the cabin windows were large, almost floor to ceiling, and the room was designed to have glass walls 12 meters long and 3 meters high. "

Steve worked with the chief engineer of Apple stores to design a special glass that was able to provide structural support.

The mega yacht will be a nice Christmas present for the widow of Steve Jobs, Laurence, and three of their children, Reed, Erin and Eve.
