Joe Lewis lives on one of the most luxurious boats in the world… Well, for most months of the year… and it’s not just any old boat. The Aviva III, built in 2007, is Joe’s mobile private office and it’s 68 meters long with an estimated value of £195 million. It was crafted by German builders Abeking and Rasmussen and designed by Reymond Langton. The large yacht can host up to 16 people and in sea trials reached up to 20 knots (about 23mph). Joe is a keen sportsman, with the ship boasting a full-sized tennis court.
In May 2013, Spurs went on a trip to the Bahamas and were welcomed on board the vessel by host Joe. Michael Dawson, who was the club captain at the time, said: “I had never met him before, so it was nice to go over there and a great experience. “What a really nice guy. And that yacht is unreal! But he’s just a normal guy. “You could chat to him about anything. He tunes into all the games, he loves it. “We just sat there chatting. He made us feel so welcome over there. It was relaxed. A lot of team-bonding together. “It helps to be able to put a face to the person investing so much in this club he wants to be successful. “He’s always watching. He knows what goes on. He would remember every game, every little thing.”
