Talk about close-quarters maneuvering.

A drone captured the late Steve Jobs’ yacht, Venus, squeezing through a bridge in St. Martin.

Venus had been in St. Martin for about two weeks for a scheduled stop. On Saturday it departed on a private charter to an undisclosed destination, according to the St. Maarten Island Guide.

First it had to get past the infamous Simpson Bay bridge, the entry and exit to one of the Caribbean’s largest sheltered lagoons.
