The drastically designed motoryacht, 49.9m JoyMe, has had a change of central agency – undergoing a €1 million price reduction in the process – and is now listed for sale with Ocean Independence. The 2011 build is currently located at Marina Frapa, Croatia, with a new asking price of €20 million.
“This yacht really isn’t for your traditional buyer – it’s a one-off listing and is for someone that wants something different”, began Ocean Independence’s listing broker, Edouard Vignal. “It has a very unusual layout; the master cabin is on the upper deck as opposed to the main deck and the general arrangement provides some alternative spaces. For a relatively unrecognised shipyard, however, the quality of the finishing is outstanding.”
JoyMe is a tri-deck full displacement motoryacht that was constructed with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure by Philip Zepter Yachts, a Croatian shipyard in Kraljevica. “The owner went to a number of shipyards with this design but none would accept what he wanted to do”, continued Vignal. “I understand people’s first impressions of it; many can’t accept that it’s bright red and radical, but there are clients for that and it has garnered interest from Eastern European and Middle Eastern clients in particular.”
The interior was designed by Marijana Radovic, who apportioned accommodation for 12 guests over six staterooms and 11 crew in six crew cabins. The fully customised interior offers a variety of design throughout, with each cabin embracing its own personality.
She is fitted with two Cummins 1,100hp engines, with approximately 1,822 hours on the clock. She is able to reach a maximum speed of 15 knots, has a cruising speed of 12 knots and can obtain a range of 3,000 nautical miles at cruising speed.
The yacht will remain in Croatia for viewings this summer and will not be for charter.
