long yacht.

Philippe Starck, the very famous French designer will have the honour and the challenging task to provide his
design skills for Jobs’ ambitious project.

The ship yard is NOT confirmed but the team behind the last amazing Starck project “M/Y A” are likely to work
together again as Steve Jobs only want the best in the business.This is likely to means Martin Francis and Blohm
and Voss will be collaborating with Mr. Starck.

Most of Jobs personal fortune was built during the past five years thanks to stock option grants from Apple’s
board and more than doubled to nearly $5 billion when he sold Pixar to Disney last year.

A new mini “M/Y A” is on the way the “75 meter project by starck” will surely be a mix of the Apple + Starck
futuristic look

DESIGN will be soft, round, simple, extreme ground breaking, probably white, not flash and not filthy rich
looking

Jobs will surely retire by the time this is build.
Project Starck Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs has placed an order to a French design firm for a 246 feet (75 meters) long yacht, sources we’re unable to name told MacScoop.

Philippe Starck, the very famous French designer will have the honour and the challenging task to provide his design skills for Jobs’ ambitious project.

Sources have even provided some details on the design of the yacht. They specifically mentioned there will be a swimming pool and two big matress on the front side of it.

No word on how much this project will cost to Apple’s very charismatic CEO but sources told us the design of the yacht is handled by one of “the most expensive design firms out there.” No word either on which company was chosen to build the yacht.

In that move, Jobs joins the club of the IT industry’s billionaires who have built they’re own yacht. Among them, the two co-founders of Microsoft, Paul Allen and Bill Gates whose net worth are respectively about $16 billion and $50 billion. The first has a 413 feet yacht called Octopus (was the biggest at the time it was built) while Bill Gates was rumoured to have ordered a new yacht last year. We may also note Larry Ellisson’s 452 feet long yacht named Rising Sun.

Most of Jobs personal fortune was built during the past five years thanks to stock option grants from Apple’s board and more than doubled to nearly $5 billion when he sold Pixar to Disney last year.
