The Perfect Yacht for Michael Jordan

26 North Yachts’ co-founders both grew up in the Chicago area during Michael Jordan’s storied run with the Bulls in the 1980s and 90s. Our in-house basketball team is widely considered the best in the industry (though, admittedly, we’re not aware of any other brokerage houses that actually compete…). And we recently listed “Angiamo”, the very first expedition yacht ever built by Feadship. So how could we NOT share this breaking TMZ story? This URL says it all:


Right now, Michael Jordan is on a yacht with a very unusual amenity – a basketball court. The yacht in question is “Joy”, a 2016 70-meter Feadship that’s in St. Barths for the holidays. She’s notable for dozens of reasons, and one of them is her use of “winter gardens” – which are areas on the main & upper decks that, with the flick of a switch, can be converted to glassed-in, air conditioned interior areas. But to us, it’s the basketball court that makes this Feadship truly remarkable – and, with all due respect to Lebron James and Wilt Chamberlain, who better to have on board than the true GOAT? As far as we’re concerned, no one.
