The 39-foot wide Venus was seen leaving the Simpson Bay Lagoon, with a 56-foot wide bridge opening leaving about 8 feet on either side for an exit
The vessel, christened ?Venus?, had been in St Maarten for around 2 weeks for a scheduled stop and Saturday set sail on a private charter to an unknown destination.
Brian Muston managed to capture aerial footage of the yacht as it navigated through the infamous ?Simpson Bay bridge?, the entry and exit to one of the Caribbean?s largest sheltered lagoons.
Phillippe Starck helped design the sleek 256-foot long vessel, and Jobs enlisted the chief engineer of the Apple Stores to design reinforced glass for its walls, according to his biographer Walter Isaacson.
Starck spoke about Venus in an interview with French?Vanity Fair, explaining the yacht houses six bedrooms along with communication systems between the kids? rooms in the front and the adult quarters in the rear.
?Steve wanted to be sure that the teenagers could be set up in the front of the boat when he was at the back and vice-versa. He was obsessed with silence,? Starck said.
?In his home, children did not make noise, nor the dog, nor his wife ? no one made any noise, ever.?
Jobs? widow Laurene Powell Jobs currently owns the ship, which has been seen in Montanegro, Palma, Gibraltar and Horta Azores according to Shipspotting.com.
The ship was recently underway west of Saba, another Dutch island in the Caribbean, according to Marine Traffic.
There may be a legal scrape in the future for Muston, who was flying the drone less than a kilometer away from the Princess Juliana International Airport SXM in Sint Maarten.
The Daily Herald reports that the airport?s director was discussing the issue with the Department of Civil Aviation.
