One year after his death, Steve Jobs’ yacht which he started designing in 2009 with renowned French designer Philippe Starck has been completed.

Dutch site “One More Thing”  has posted a video along with some pictures of the new 250-foot long yacht christened “Venus”, making what looks to be its first public appearance in the Dutch city of Aalsmeer.

The superyacht, which was built in the Netherlands by shipbuilder Koninklijke De Vries, is said to feature a lightweight aluminum exterior measuring 70 to 80 meters long and seven 27-inch iMacs lined up in the wheelhouse to help run the controls. According to BI, everyone who worked on the ship received a thank you letter and an iPod Shuffle with the yacht’s name inscribed on the back, as a gift from the Jobs family that is reportedly on-hand for the unveiling of “Venus”.

Photos of the yacht can be found here.
