Tennis on Board

The German shipyard, Abeking & Rasmussen, knows how to make astonishing yachts. And their 98-metre motor yacht Aviva is a living example. Moreover, regarding her size, it is the most extraordinary yacht in company’s history. One fact that is worth to be revealing, is that it is the 4th Aviva that belongs to the same owner, UK billionaire Joe Lewis, who wished he was able to play tennis on board.

A blue hull and chamfered elements bring attention to the exterior. But it is important to mention the invisible part of the vessel which distinguishes itself by innovative technical specifications and unique interior, conceptualised by Reymond Langton Design. The yacht owner’s love for tennis is clearly demonstrated by using an enormous space only for this leisure activity.

The tennis court uses an area of 20 metres x 10 metres x 6.65 metres. According to Reymond Langton Design, it brakes a record of this kind of size: “It is not only a lifestyle change for the owner but also the crew as this is also the largest gym of any yacht.”

The design team explained that most challenging part of this project was to arrange the tennis court in a very specific way that does not create any negative influence on other spaces and also maintains the quality of the court.

Superyacht Aviva looks remarkable and luxurious both inside and out. The Eco-friendly drive system is one of the strongest points of the yacht.  It uses less petrol to reach vessel’s maximum speed.

For its contemporary design and on-board tennis court, Aviva won Boat International’s 2018 award in the category of Design & Innovation.

Indeed, it is an extremely luxurious vessel that exceeds limits and imagination. Let’s see what we can expect for Aviva number 5 if it comes.
