Drone Captures Steve Jobs yacht Venus

Drone Captures Steve Jobs Yacht Venus Squeezing Through Bridge in St Maarten

Amazing unique aerial footage above Steve Jobs luxury yacht ‘Venus’ exiting the narrow channel in St Maarten to go out to sea.


‘Venus’ has been in St Maarten for around 2 weeks for a scheduled stop and Saturday set sail on a private charter to an unknown destination, but first it had to navigate through the infamous ‘Simpson Bay bridge’ which is the entry and exit to one of the Caribbean’s largest sheltered lagoons.





Watch here as drone captures Steve Jobs yacht Venus as it narrowly avoids scraping against the side of the bridge opening…..
