It’s yachting season, or so we’re told, and a very large vessel is currently sitting in the Hudson at around 86th Street.
The yacht is called the Aviva, according to our yacht tipster, who goes by @ursus_actos59 on Twitter. It’s 98.4 meters, just shy of the length of a football field. But the yacht’s owner is apparently more interested in padel tennis, a kind of indoor tennis played with paddles. Padel tennis courts are generally 10 by 20 meters long, according to our padel tennis sources.
“Aviva is the third yacht of her name delivered to owner Joe Lewis, British businessman and major shareholder in Tottenham Hotspur Football Club,” according to Boat International. The site says it’s the 46th longest yacht in the world.
The tennis court is located in a lower section of the boat, so you can’t watch matches from your hum-drum landlocked apartment. Sorry plebeians!
