The Tottenham Hotspur FC owner’s multi-million pound super yacht has been spotted turning around on the River Thames today.

London-born businessman Joe Lewis, 80, had the 321ft-long state-of-the-art ship built in Germany last year.

The ship, called Aviva, took three years to build and little is known about its interior because of a veil of secrecy surrounding construction.

Despite being the 46th longest yacht in the world, she can reach speeds of up to 20 knots (23mph), or 10 knots (12mph) while using electric motors only thanks to her hybrid drive system.

London-born businessman Joe Lewis’s super yacht Aviva was pictured sailing along the River Thames earlier today

It even features a full-size tennis court on board and can accommodate up to 16 guests. 

Mr Lewis, who has two children, is worth £4billion and now lives in the Bahamas. The boat was last pictured in British waters in May while moored off Falmouth in Cornwall.

His wealth, which he accumulated after joining George Soros to bet against the pound and profit in the ‘Black Wednesday’ crash in 1992, means he is the 12th richest person in the UK.   

As well as his home in the Bahamas, Mr Lewis owns property in Argentina, Florida and Bulgaria. 

He lives on his yachts, four of which are named Aviva, for months at a time and is said to have artwork by Paul Cezanne and Picasso on board.
