Steve Jobs’ widow and her boyfriend vacation on the $100million yacht the late Apple founder designed but never got to use

The widow of Steve Jobs and her boyfriend have been pictured holidaying in Croatia with the $100million yacht the late Apple founder built but never got to use.

According to Daily Mail, Laurene Powell Jobs was seen sightseeing in Dubrovnik with Adrian Fenty, the ex-mayor of Washington D.C, and with her 19-year-old daughter Eve, who had an iPhone tucked into her waistband.

The 53-year-old’s 256ft-long luxury yacht Venus was moored off the coast as they spent time in the historic city.

Steve Jobs commissioned the ship in 2008, a few years after his first cancer diagnosis, but never got to walk on board, since the tech genius died a year before it was completed.

Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell Jobs is believed to maintain ownership of the ship.

Powell was left widowed after Apple founder Steve Jobs passed away, aged 56, from complications from pancreatic cancer in October 2011. They had three children together and Powell is also step-mother to Jobs’ daughter, Lisa Brennan-Jobs.

Fenty, mayor of Washington D.C. between 2007 and 2011, formally announced his separation from his wife of 15 years, Michelle, in January 2013. They have three children together.

Sources told the Washington Post that summer that Fenty and Powell started seeing each other around the same time, but there is no suggestion that Powell had anything to do with the separation.

It is believed the two met at a Houston education conference in 2011 and bonded over school reform; Powell is the founder of Emerson Collective, which advocates for education reform.

When Steve Jobs passed away in October 2011, most of his assets passed on to his wife, making her one of the 50 richest people in the world.

She owns, among other things, two private jets, four real estate properties and shares of the Walt Disney Company and Apple, Business Insider reported last year.

The report said Powell Jobs was now the sixth richest woman in the world based on Forbes’ ranking, behind French L’Oreal shareholder Liliane Bettencourt, Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton, Mars heiress Jacqueline Mars, Italian Michele Ferrero’s widow Maria Franca Fissolo and German BMW heiress Susanne Klatten.
