Amsterdam - The Venus, the $130 million high-tech super-yacht commissioned by the late Apple founder Steve Jobs, has been impounded in the Port of Amsterdam over a disputed bill.
The Venus was designed by Frenchman Philippe Starck who claims Mr Jobs' estate owes him €3 million. According to the BBC Starck called in the debt collectors and the yacht was impounded.
The super-yacht was commissioned in 2007 but only completed following the death of Jobs. He had worked closely on the design alongside Starck.
The super-yacht is minimalist and, according to Time, features "a sleek, aluminum-hulled design and a bridge controlled by seven linked iMac personal computers."
Workers at the Port of Amsterdam have been ordered to ensure the yacht does not leave the port until the issue of the disputed bill is resolved.
