Minimalist design. Seamless metal and glass. Sleek lines. Revolutionary. Super thin. Perhaps the last official Steve Jobs product launch (translation).

Designed by Phillipe Starcke, built by Feadship, and named 'Venus' after the Roman goddess of love and beauty.

Am I allowed to say that yacht is both very cool and profoundly ugly? Whatever is going on up top looks like a giant HVAC housing unit. On the other hand, it isn't my yacht and the only person it needs to please is Jobs' wife, who probably feels very differently about completing a legacy project of her husband's than I do about the legacy project of her husband's.

I suppose that I shouldn't be shocked that the CEO of Apple would indulge in the sine qua non of "I have so much fucking money that I don't know what to do, so I'll piss a huge chunk of it away on a super ostentatious vanity item." And then make it hideous in pursuit of a design edge for when it pulls in next to Larry Ellison's waterborne penis.

But I guess I indulged in the fantasy that the guy who made it home for dinner with his family in the kitchen on most nights, wouldn't stoop to such crass conspicuous consumption. And that's totally my blind spot, that is.

People have this strong desire to perceive Steve Jobs as, in addition to a visionary, not being a guy who made a bazillion dollars selling conspicuous consumer goods.

That said, and with sort of a baseline position that is pretty much "fuck all you bazillionaires in your stupid giant boats", I guess I still think it's a cool looking boat. I mean, a helluva lot cooler looking than a lot of the absurd floating mansions you see.

I couldn't put words to the profound emotion I'd feel as I sat, alone, in the master stateroom of that vessel if my late spouse had commissioned it to be built as a traveling vacation home for our family, knowing that he would never see it nor appreciate it nor get to spend the time he wanted on the open sea with just his family and friends.

Maybe it's ugly to some. I do think that misses the poignancy, though. I hope his family get some use and comfort out of it, surrounded as they will be by Jobs' design gestalt.

I come from a family of yachtspersons and like spending time at sea about as much as I do anything. What I never understand about these superyachts is that you don't get any of the good bits of being at sea. You can't sail it yourself, or with a small crew of friends (hell you can't even sail it, lacking as it does FUCKING SAILS). You can't pick up and go anywhere you like anytime you feel like it. You don't have that great cross between camping and comfort that a small yacht affords.

You've got a huge floating RV that someone else gets to drive. Awesome.

It looks very Steve Jobs and not very Johnny Ive. By which I mean that the triumph of apple was to pair form and functionality together and strip back everything so that the technology was secondary to the experience. This perhaps has the form, but there is no "functionality" for it to have.

Pairing the two like an "apple product" is/would be an impossible task to do when designing a fucking giant yacht - because a giant yacht is about the least minimalist and practical thing that you could ever design. I think it looks discordant not because the design is bad but because the nature of the product means it is not possible to make it anything other than a large ugly bauble.

I don't know, this weird spitting-on-grave thing is strange to me, and heaven knows I'm no stranger to class resentment.

Likewise the sneering at the iPods is strange—for one thing, presumably most of the shipbuilders' clients consider payment to be enough. For another, who knows if that was the extent of the gifts.

I guess I've just spent the last week watching a variety of people on the internet evaluate the actions of their fellow humans in the most cynical and uncharitable light possible, and it's been kind of a bummer, watching everyone assume the absolute worst of everybody else.

I'm not sure about the "Tip" culture we have. I understand it in the case of workers (wait staff) whose wages are below scale, but for skilled workers whose pay is reasonable for their skills, isn't the paycheck sufficient?

Another take, which at least spends a moment contemplating the poignancy of the legacy of a dead man.

It's interesting. Here's a man who takes a trip with his family, enjoys it so much he decides he wants to sail around the world with them, and he has the money to build a ship designed to do it.

So he pours his heart into the thing, and almost gives up when he finds out, tragically, that he is dying. He perseveres, despite facing numerous health crises, knowing he might never live to see his dream reach its culmination, because he was having fun.

And the initial reaction to learning of this here on Metafilter is not, as one might expect, "If you have that kind of money, and your time is limited, might as well spend it doing something you love," but catty criticisms of the thank you gift he gave the workers and "Who cares, it's an ugly boat anyway!"

Just as a point of comparison, back when he was only receiving a $1 annual salary, Apple gave Steve Jobs a $43.5 Million Gulfstream V jet and paid the expenses whenever he flew for business. The cost of this yacht is probably somewhere in that neighborhood.

Have to say that this deviates from marine architectural motifs, and not in an especially good way. It's a shame because I do think they could have blended the obvious Apple Store mimickry into a sleeker, more aerodynamic design in a better way. It's ironic because the whole point of Apple design is ostensibly (and admittedly contentiously) one where form follows function, or at least serves aesthetics and function in equal measure. This, though, just screams a stationary barge that doesn't go to sea, and even if that was the intended use in a way, it seems like a waste and a product that will have a limited resale potential.

Nobody is saying this boat is ugly just to be mean, to tramp on a dead man's dream. Even were we not to know who designed and built this boat, we would still say it is ugly. The boat is ugly, and that's a legitimate criticism, however well or ill considered. Maybe we could just pat the ghost of Jobs on the head and say, "Well it's the intention what counts!"

To be fair, this is not a question of having the money to do it. This is a case of building a boat 10 times bigger and 10 times more expensive than even a really nice super yacht more than sufficient to the task.

Personally I don't care what Steve Jobs chose to spend his personal fortune on as long as it wasn't Republicans. But at the same time, I don't think you can build a boat on this scale with this designer and expect that you are signing up for anything less than intense scrutiny right along with your transatlantic voyages.
posted by DarlingBri at 2:28 PM on October 28, 2012


It would make a stunning headquarters for a campy Bond villain. Kind of surprised to hear Jobs had signed off on something that seems so much unlike his aesthetic. Whatever his personal faults, he seemed to value beauty, grace and charm in the things he designed, and this boat seems to lack those qualities almost entirely. De gustibus non est disputandum and all that, but I got the sense from previous coverage on this that Starcke and Jobs' family didn't get along too well, and I wonder if there were disagreements over matters of design.

In a world of cookie cutter vehicles, any vehicle which looks different has a good shot at being attractive in some way. I clicked on the links to Paul Allen's yacht that people have linked to here. It's boring. It may be big, but it just looks like every other yacht except bigger. I personally like Job's yacht from some angles, but I'm not a fan of the straight lines in the back. It's definitely more attractive then most ho-hum yachts though.

To me, things become less attractive when you get used to them. New looks are worth trying out. That's why old phones become less attractive over time. That's why there are no cars under $100k which are particularly exciting (unless they are cars which aren't sold in the area I live in). That's why I house hunted for half a year and saw only a few houses which I found beautiful (I couldn't afford them though).

I recently discovered (maybe it was even on MeFi, I forget) that there is a whole genre of videos on Youtube of ships crashing through high seas. This video is rather dramatic but is rather high production values for this genre. But most of them are camera shots from the bridge, like this one or this one. They are sort of hypnotically fascinating.

MGM's reconstruction of H.M.S. Bounty, built for Mutiny on the Bounty, was Ted Turner's yacht for a few years after he purchased the MGM film library (and the Bounty) in 1986. While it was Ted's he certainly had the ubercoolest yacht on the seas, leaving all others of any size in the shade. The Bounty also had fat parts in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and the made-for-TV Treasure Island (which was available on VHS tape but doesn't seem ever to have made it to DVD, a damn shame because it's wonderful.)

Wikipedia in action, which is already updated about today's incident.

To clarify, the original HMS Bounty's (AKA HM Armed Vessel Bounty) demise: "To prevent the ship's detection, and anyone's possible escape, the ship was burned on 23 January 1790". She sailed less than 2.5 years.

Current reporting about the replica vessel seems to alternately referred to it with and without the HMS. She sailed for 42ish years.

There's a second replica, the H.M.A.V. Bounty built in 1979 in New Zealand also for a film and currently used as a tourist attraction in Honk Kong.

Consider this: The WWII-era Cassablanca class escort carriers were 512 feet long, Allen's Octopus is 414 feet long. I'm not saying it isn't insane, but it is on the scale with actual military vessels.

The Enigma is much smaller, but powered by a high-speed military-style turbine engine that can take it up to 28-30 kts. That's crazy fast and consumes an insane amount of fuel.

I guess my point is that there is a multitude of different ways in which these boats can be insane. It is kind of fun to research them, but also kind of useless trivia.
