Yeah, I didn't mean he'd literally be the captain. This seemed like Steve's idea and could easily have been a way for him to ensure he spent more time with his family. If that was the intention, the feeling of being aboard that yacht without him would be incredibly depressing, especially considering he didn't even get to see it finished.

It was probably the only way to word it to avoid people narrowing it down quickly. Like when Steve said Apple had a 'product transition' when he meant stepping down for Tim to take over. It could also have been a misinterpretation. It was a French radio interview and he may have only mentioned that he met with Steve and there was secrecy and then people assumed he meant Apple.

Maybe but they were married for 21 years. Waking up next to someone for 21 years and then have that change suddenly must leave a void that even the biggest yacht in the world can't fill. If it was me personally, I think I'd feel much worse with that particular yacht but then again, there might be some innovative technology on board that the world should see...
...like an Apple television set.
Thing is, the alternative is that all the money stays in digital accounts that can increase or decrease in value. Most of it is in Disney stock. It's probably wise to use a lot of it on physical assets no matter what they are.
