MICHAEL JORDAN AND HIS SUSUPERYATE “JOY”
Recognized as one of the richest people in America, Michael Jordan is no surprise that he boasts an 80 million dollar luxury superyacht.
Although this is not his only boat, “Joy” is the most impressive thanks to its 70 meters in length and interiors full of luxurious comforts.
The exterior design for “Joy” was developed by Bannenberg & Rowell Design. She has a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure. The decks are made of teak wood and Studio Sindigo did the amazing interior design.
The superyacht of 2016, has a total of 5 decks, each one for a different activity and purpose. Among its main attractions are the master suite and bedrooms, all decorated with ocean mosaics such as skylights and bathrooms with granite finishes, as well as rain showers.
It offers a 270 degree ocean view and has an elegant private living room. The entire boat has been provided with glass insulation to have a comfortable stay during the heat or on extremely cold days.
Honoring Michael Jordan‘s hospitality, “Joy” accommodates 12 guests and a crew of 19. The yacht offers spa rooms with Jacuzzi and sauna and generous VIP staterooms.
Guests can choose from water sports, onboard activities, beach fun, or nightlife. The best and most interesting to Jordan to acquire is the basketball court located on the fourth deck, to practice his favorite sport in the middle of the ocean.
Its cost to rent it is $ 840,000 per person, an affordable amount for a celebrity like Michale Jordan, who has a net worth of $ 2 billion.
Joy has received a number of awards including the ‘500GT to 1,499GT Displacement Motor Yachts’ accolade at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards; “Best exterior design and style” at the ShowBoats Design Awards 2017 and Winner of the best Yacht in Show at the MYBA fair in Barcelona.
