She's just arrived in WPB.
Rybovich yards probably?
Hasn't anyone capture nice night shots with her lit as yet?
Difficult to find, and if you do locate something, they don't show what you hope for

Christmas started early this year?
The only thing on in that shot is the railing!
That is not the first picture I've seen with just the railing lit up. Has anyone seen anything with more than the railing illuminated?
Yes she is in Rybovich Marine's yard in WPB.
The only shot I could get of her was from the Marina next door, unfortunately she was obscured by another yacht so all I could snap was her stern.
Venus just arrived in Gibraltar so hopefully Daniel or his Dad can snag some fresh shots!
She left this side of the world quietly! I didn't even know.
She arrived the other side of the world quietly, too!
The accolades are deafening.
Lol Old Phart....it wasn't as spectacular as we were expecting I suppose, the Media blitz I mean.
A rolling stone gathers no moss, she has left Gibraltar and is headed East at around 17 knots to Palma according to MT.
I never thought I was going to say this, but............ she is starting to grow on me.........
Steve Jobs Yacht Venus - Horta, Azores
I enjoyed that video! She looks good. She is an Odd yacht very different from the norm but different is good sometimes.
Wait. Where are the.....
I don't see any rotating radar antennae. Can't believe a vessel that size doesn't have radar. Maybe on top of the wheelhouse, where the dome(s) are? Or maybe Steve went to "phased array!"
Oh wait - I see them now. That video was a big help. Someone mentioned that Feadship wouldn't build a boat that wasn't seaworthy. I don't doubt it, but I'd like to hear some knowledgeable opinions on just how seaworthy she really is, especially in a head or quartering sea. Looks to me like the decks would be wet all the time, but hey...............
Does anybody know if Steve Jobs ever got to set foot on her? Even once?
How would we know that? He passed when she was still in construction. If he did it would have had to been earlier in the build process.
Only those close to Jobs and the project actually know, but after reading about Job's involvement Blog | all about Steve Jobs.com with the design and build process it seems that it all took place without him ever physically visiting Feadship so it is unlikely that he ever actually set foot on her but saw many pictures and models of her during his collaboration with Stark, Feadship, et al.
Video of "Venus" at Capri Italy.
Capri: avvistato tra i faraglioni ''Venus'', lo yacht gioiello di Steve Jobs
Finally we can see a few closer and definitive shots of the deck and she has a proper open tender other than the RIB we have been seeing all the time. Aft main deck you can see an dining table set up, never seen that before. Looks like the tent awning on the fore deck is covering a seating area and lounges are to the fore of it. I like her though, she's a bit weird but cool at the same time.
