Steve Jobs was arguably one of the most successful entrepreneurs in American history. The founder of Apple died a few years ago after a long-running battle with cancer.
Jobs, who was worth billions of dollars at the time of his death, was known to be a workaholic, and not one to take vacations or float around the world in a yacht.
However, TMZ is reporting that before his death, the business mogul who changed the world of music with the iPod, revolutionized the world of desktop publishing with the iMac, streamlined the world’s use of cellular phones with the invention of the iPhone, and pushed Pixar animations to never-before-seen levels placed an order for a $100M yacht.
Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, and her daughter were recently spotted using the yacht in Croatia.
Mrs. Jobs was docked near the historic city of Dubrovnik in southern Croatia and flanked by 19-year-old daughter, Eve. Joining them on the excursion was politician Adrian Fenty. Fenty served as the sixth mayor of the District of Columbia from 2007 to 2011.
The Jobs’ yacht was docked not far from the coast. The 256-foot, $100 million luxury liner named ‘Venus’ is shown below.
Steve Jobs ordered the vessel in 2008. but never saw it come to life; Jobs died in 2011. The construction of the yacht was finished a year later.
