Bill dispute holds Venus

ADVERTISEMENT

A 256-foot megayacht built for Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs was held in Holland in late December over an unpaid bill to designer Philippe Starck, according to news reports.

A lawyer representing Starck’s company told Reuters that his client had received 6 million euros out of a 9-million-euro commission for his work on the vessel and was seeking to recover the rest.

“The project has been going since 2007 and there had been a lot of detailed talk between Jobs and Starck,” said Roelant Klaassen, a lawyer representing Ubik. “These guys trusted each other, so there wasn’t a very detailed contract.”

M/Y Venus was released less than a week later for an undisclosed sum. It was believed the yacht was heading to the United States, where Jobs’ family will take possession.
