Yacht Bill Dispute- How Would Late Apple’s Owner “Fight it Out”?
Venus, the high-tech yacht commissioned by the late Apple founder Steve Jobs has been impounded in a row over a payment dispute.
Jobs and French designer Philippe Starck together designed the yacht in 2007. The estimated price to build the yacht was more than 100 million Euro.
According to a report, the Port of Amsterdam claimed that the yacht will not be allowed to depart.
According to the BBC, a representative of the Port of Amsterdam, Jeroen Ranzijn said, "the boat is brand new but there is a three million Euro claim on it."
"The parties will have to fight it out." He added.
On the other hand, Starck claims it took more than 190 million Euro to make the yacht and is owed for his work. However, the late star's family has confirmed the price, insisting he is only entitled to 8 million Euro.
The representative lawyer of the owners of the Venus Gerard Moussault gave no comment on this issue, according to the BBC.
According to a court order, the relatives must pay the difference of four million Euro otherwise the yacht will remain attached to a local dock.
