Talk about piloting-nerves of steel.

Brian Muston, a drone videographer, captured the late Steve Jobs’ 256-foot superyacht, Venus, squeezing through a bridge opening in St. Martin. The Daily Mail reports the opening in the bridge at the entrance to the Simpson Bay Lagoon has opening of just 56 feet.

The six bedroom yacht is said to have a beam of 39 feet.

The St. Maarten Island Guidereported Venus was leaving St. Martin for about two weeks under private charter. The Simpson Bay bridge, the entry and exit to one of the Caribbean’s largest sheltered lagoons, was the vessel's first obstacle en route to open waters.

Commissioned in 2012, Jobs never got to enjoy life aboard his personal yacht as he passed away less than a year before she hit the water. Jobs' boating inspiration came after spending many summers in the yacht world with friend and fellow tech-pioneer Larry Ellison aboard his yacht.

Venus was left to and is currently owned by Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs.
