Steve jobs dared to be different, that included his design for a yacht. Why does everything have to be similar to what others have. Just take a walk past sunseeker in Poole where there is little variance in every single boat produced, yet they are sold as custom motor yachts!!!

They're custom Bumsqueekers, so there's a common base no matter what you do with the layout - that's fair.

Steve was special/different. He also had the ability to be wrong - he admitted that he should have trusted the medical profession to treat his cancer instead of initially resorting to herbal remedies and the like. There's a very good chance he'd still be with us if he hadn't.

I think he got the yacht's "look" wrong too, but I fully respect a man's right to build whatever boat he wants. That's what they should be - whatever you want...

I reckon that bit's really sad

Hmmm... Not the best looking of vessels.

Don't know about "Venus",...... I'm thinking more "Uranus" :-)

Mind you i hated the look of the BMW 1 series when it came out and that's grown on me...
