Dutch shipyard Feadship has announced the launch of its new 70 metre superyacht, Joy. The vessel features large exterior spaces and a contemporary classic interior.


Joy is the first superyacht for this owner, who gave Feadship a brief to “create something totally different to every other yacht.”

The 70 metre vessel was launched at the Dutch company’s Kaag yard in the presence of the owners, invited guests and the workforce responsible for Joy’s design, engineering and construction.

The superyacht has a speed of 16 knots, with a 11.5 metre beam and draught of 3 metres.

Joy is the first Feadship to feature an exterior design by the London-based studio, Bannenberg & Rowell.

In another debut, the superyacht’s contemporary classic interior has been designed by Studio Indigo, also based in London.

Speaking at the launch, Feadship director, Jan-Bart Verkuyl said the owner had “decided to create something genuinely different from scratch.”

“You challenged us to make something totally unique which solely reflects the use that you have in mind – and the result is amazing. As the youngest owner we’ve ever created a Feadship for, the Joy project reflects the energy and enthusiasm of the next generation of clients who are coming to Feadship,” said Verkuyl.

“Joy was an incredibly complicated boat to build with so many shapes and lines,” he added.

The yacht has a sleek profile, with concave shapes in the superstructure, as well as generous wide walkways and large exterior spaces.

Inside, interior spaces are easily extended by glass doors on the main, owner and bridge decks aft.
