Some very rich people flaunt their wealth; Steve Jobs was almost modest and understated. The house he had designed for his family was understated and reserved, and his apple stores are models of fine detailing but minimalist restraint. So I was surprised to see images of his yacht, the Venus, that was recently completed.
As for the reverse-sloping chopped-off stern, it reminds me of an AMC Gremlin.
I know there is nothing really TreeHugger about this post, other than to say that it is pretty close to the first time that Jobs has done something that is so...excessive. What do you think?
