Battle of the celeb super yachts as Michael Jordan flaunts amazing £60m boat with basketball court

NEVER MIND the jet set - it's all about the yacht club when the world's wealthiest celebs want to make a splash.

Basketball legend Michael Jordan reached new heights when he snapped up a stunning £60million boat complete with its own sports court and hoop.

He bought the luxurious vessel in 2019, that sits alongside his £6million fishing boat Catch 23.

And plenty of other stars have grabbed a slice of luxury on the seas - often paying a fortune to rent one.

Some, like Jay Z and Beyonce's floating home, boast their own nightclub, while others feature hot tubs perfect for that envy-inducing Instagram pic.

But which star does it best? Here, we get on deck to examine the evidence.

Michael Jordan

Top feature: Full-size basketball court.

The sports legend has been showing off his £60million, 230ft-long ship called Joy.

The name's certainly appropriate, because it has a deck jacuzzi, gym and a lift to reach the five decks.

And naturally, the 58-year-old former Chicago Bulls player had it kitted out with a full basketball court.

Elton John

Top feature: Top-deck Jacuzzi

Elton John likes to invite his famous pals, including Victoria and David Beckham, to relax on his 164ft cruiser called Wabi Sabi.

The £21million delight can sleep 18 guests in the eight bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, and also has space for 12 crew.

The singer's luxury additions include the top-deck Jacuzzi, a 50-inch plasma screen and a library.


Top feature: Nightclub

Beyonce and her husband Jay Z rented a 300ft-long floating home for a family holiday.

The £160million Kismet has a 'club room' for hosting parties, where the rapper and singer could have challenged themselves to a dance-off.

After a night raving you can relax in the dedicated spa, which includes marble and gold features.

Kylie Jenner

Top feature: Beauty salon

When reality star Kylie Jenner celebrated her 23rd birthday two years ago, she hired the £200million Tranquility.

The 300ft vessel, with a bling interior made of 'bamboo, marble and gold leaf', costs around £1million a week to charter.

For that you get a hot tub, swimming pool, Turkish bath, massage rooms, steam room, sauna and a beauty salon.

Conor McGregor 

Top feature: Jousting platform

UFC legend Conor McGregor showed off his 150ft vessel which includes a jacuzzi, stunning bar and lounge area.

It has a sea pool which tows from the back, so his kids can swim in it.

And if the yacht doesn’t go fast enough, he bought himself a Lamborghini one that does 75mph.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Top feature: Water slide

Man Utd striker Cristiano Ronaldo took a dive - but this time from the lavish Africa I yacht.

He chartered the boat for a family break in 2019 and spent much of the time with his wife Georgina in the Jacuzzi.

There's a fully-equipped gym on board and an inflatable water slide that runs from the top deck of the vessel.

Chloe Green 

Top feature: Gold plated lifts

Heiress Chloe Green lives it up on her dad Philip Green’s £100million megayacht Lionheart.

It has three on-board jet-skis, a pool, large outdoor dining area, bar, helipad and three gold-plated lifts.

Philip is said to always have his personal chef from Monaco on board as the family sail around - so they can ensure a top superfood-only diet with plenty of fresh fish.

Roman Abramovich

Top feature: A swimming pool that turns into a dancefloor.

Chelsea owner Romanc Abramovich paid an estimated half a billion dollars for the 533ft Eclipse.

It was the world's biggest superyacht when it was built back in 2009.

The ship has two helipads, a wood-burning fire pit and a 16m swimming pool that transforms into a dance floor.

Sheikh Mansour

Top feature: Two helipads

The owner of Man City has loaned this monster vessel to pals such as Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Topaz is 482ft long, has eight floors, two helipads, three swimming pools, a gym, jacuzzi and a cinema.

DiCaprio took 21 guests with him when he hired the Topaz in 2018 and is believed to have also used the yacht four years earlier.
