The true joy of sailing on a superyacht is best understood on JOY! This gorgeous 230-feet ship is the result of collaboration between yachting powerhouses- Bannenberg and Rowell and Dutch pedigree yard Feadship. The interiors are spell-binding and done by acclaimed London-based Studio Indigo. This 2016 Feadship beauty is a catch for billionaire vacationers who want it all on their break from five decks, eight luxurious cabins, and nearly countless amenities. Let’s take a look at what makes Joy a billionaires pet:
Oh! What a Joy!
What is more joyful than finding yourself on a luxury vessel that flaunts more features and amenities than one would find in a five-star resort on land? 230-footer Joy is all about how it amuses and appears, so we will first talk about its most exciting offerings. A basketball court; now, who could’ve thought about that? It wouldn’t be entirely wrong to assume that Joy is probably the only superyacht in the world with space for the sport.
The games deck can also be used to indulge in sports like volleyball, football, and badminton. The five-decker marvel has a beach club that doubles as a nightclub or party zone. With bean bags, video walls, and video game consoles, it’s entirely upto the guests to use this space as they please.
There are plenty of health and wellness options onboard, like a semi-open-air gymnasium where you push your limits while gazing at the limitless blue ocean. The spa room has an onboard masseuse, part of the young crew of 19, ensuring a luxurious yachting experience.
The substantial luxury ship is divided among the owner’s deck, master suite, VIP cabin, and two double staterooms. The former is a well-appointed floating penthouse with a stateroom, two children’s VIP suites, and a large lounge outfitted with state-of-the-art TV and sofa seating. The stateroom is a surreal space created with floor-to-ceiling windows and an overhead skylight for additional light, shared Charter World.
With separate his and her bedrooms, the stateroom sets new standards of opulence along with attendant dressing rooms. The most adrenaline-charged facet of the Joy luxury vessel is its colossal assemblage of toy facilities. Guests will find the whole lot from an inflatable slide, a wakeboard, tows, water skis, and inflatable kayaks.
If this wide assortment wasn’t enough, there’s also gear for snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing enthusiasts. Joy luxury ship, in short, has everything you need to make your vacation on board memorable. For those who prefer to chill, the raised transom door allows guests to unwind and witness the action from afar.
This luxurious boat, powered by two MTU engines, boasts a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. The fabulous joy-giving motor yacht can be chartered for $700,000 a week.
Chicago-Bulls legend Michael Jordan loves spending time on this yacht
Basketball legend Michael Jordan loves his sport, the ocean, is a fitness freak, and the Feadship stunner certainly brings all his passions under one roof (or over one hull). NBA’s greatest all-time player was spotted on the luxurious vessel in 2019 sailing to the Caribbean island of St Barts with pals. The NASCAR team co-owner spent no less than $700,000 a week to enjoy the locales the best way possible. The businessman, worth $1.7 billion, possibly even conducted business on board Joy, thanks to its hi-tech audiovisual system and satellite. The NBA icon is a fishing enthusiast and owner of the $7.1 million yacht ‘Catch 23.’ Interestingly, Jordan’s boat ‘Catch 23’ is named after the No23 jersey. Even his exclusive golf course is nicknamed Slaughterhouse 23, paying homage to his special number. It features an 18-hole golf course, clubhouse, pro shop, and a learning facility.
