The Dutch shipyard Feadship has delivered another superyacht this year. Previously known as hull 812, the 70m superyacht Joy has successfully completed her sea trials and has been delivered to her owner.
Joy is the first Feadship superyacht to feature exterior design by the London-based design studio Bannenberg and Rowell. The yacht is also the first Feadship project for Studio Indigo, which produced the interior.
“It has been a great pleasure to work with an owner who was keen to bring something new to the superyacht world in the same way that my father did from the early 80s onwards with Feadship and others,” comments Dickie Bannenberg.
The superyacht is the perfect example of well connected exterior and interior. That can be seen by quite a few physical features including the link between the capacious foredeck and the owner's stateroom. That reinforces a panoramic effect of 270-degree wraparound windows. Looking at the interior specifically, the style has been completed with the use of over 250 different finishes and materials.
Joy is equipped with two MTU 16V4000 M53L engines and has three generators in total. It can also reach a maximum speed of 16 knots and is able to develop 4,500 nautical miles at a speed of 12 knots.
Earlier in 2016, Feadship delivered four yachts in total including the 33.5m Kamino, Moon Sand Too and Capri 3. For a full order book, visit Superyacht Intelligence.
