M/Y Venus returns to Feadship for refit

Owned by Steve Jobs’s family

One of the most emblematic and secretive vessels has returned home at Feadship's Harlingen yard for a refit.

The 78m M/Y Venus is a Philippe Starck-styled superyacht launched in 2012. It was commissioned by Apple founder Steve Jobs, but he passed away before the delivery. Owned by his family, Venus is a highly secretive yacht with very few details known to the public.

The only information available is that the hull was developed by De Voogt Naval Architects with an interior volume of 1,500 GT. It has a side-loading tender garage. Power is provided by two MTU 16V 4000 diesel engines.

In a social media post, Feadship announces the return home of Venus for her five-year Lloyd's certification and various upgrade activities.

Other two superyachts are at Feadship's yard for refit projects. The 86m M/Y Ecstasea is getting a gym added, while the 81m M/Y Air will have her superstructure painted and will undergo adaptations to her helipad.
