The court order to have the megayacht arrested in the Port of Amsterdam had been obtained earlier by the designer Philippe Stark.

The vessel, which reportedly cost over 100 million euros ($130 million) to build, was impounded after Starck claimed that Jobs' estate still owed him three million euros for his contribution to its design, reports AFP. The aluminium-hulled yacht was built by Royal De Vries shipbuilder's in Aalsmeer, just south of Amsterdam, with interiors designed by Starck. A deposit paid enabled the vessel's detention to be lifted.

The yacht will be transported by another ship to the United States, where Jobs' family, including widow Laurene Powell Jobs and their three children Reed, Erin and Eve, are to take charge of her.
