A senior charter broker at CharterWorld, Nicolas Benazeth, has organised the very first yacht charter aboard Feadship’s prestigious new 70 metre superyacht JOY. The remarkable yacht charter holiday in the Western Mediterranean was tremendously successful in all respects. CharterWorld’s charter client is a very experienced charterer and a connoisseur of the world’s very finest yachts. He found motor yacht JOY to be one of the best that he and his guests have ever cruised on, both in terms of the yacht’s facilities, style and the quality of the build. The yacht’s vastly experienced professional crew of 17, led by Captain Rory Hogan, brought all their talents to bear ensuring a very enjoyable time aboard.

Nicolas commented that “I’m just really happy to be free to work exclusively and dedicatedly for each of my charter clients. CharterWorld has an enviable, yet quite unique, position where it can impartially advise on the very best yachts available in the world, both in terms of the price and the quality of yacht and crew. I think charterers are starting to understand this point of difference and its why we receive such unrivalled loyalty from clients. The other reason is likely the extraordinary capability of our specialist brokers who receive heartening and humbling feedback from their clients.”

JOY is certainly one of the premier new superyachts available in the charter market. She features a great wealth of exterior spaces which blur the traditional boundaries between inside and outside. She is also the first superyacht to feature an exterior design by Bannenberg & Rowell and the first Feadship with an interior by the architects at Studio Indigo. The result is an astonishing private yacht which has faithfully met the owner’s brief to produce a boat that’s ‘completely different to every other yacht.’ There is an interesting in depth article in about the owner’s ideas for the yacht here.

M/Y JOY was launched and then delivered by Feadship to her owner in July 2016. Joy provides rare size, quality and outright prestige to the international yacht charter market. A superior superyacht in many ways she embodies a very successful collaboration of Bannenberg and Rowell Design and Feadship. While Bannenberg and Rowell penned her beautiful exterior lines, the famous Dutch yacht builder Feadship crafted her custom lines. A fresh approach to the yachts essential design shape has created rather inventive and innovative exterior styling. The yacht features gorgeous artistic, yet natural, shapes – as well as slightly novel concave flowing lines on her superstructure which echo ocean waves tips and troughs on a vertical plain. By solving a number of the complex yacht building challenges associated with the yacht Feadship brought this wonderful project to life.

Outside In:
Joy features extensive outdoor social and private spaces throughout her impressive five decks. This along with the ample use of windows and artistic use of glass to maximise the outside views enables a wonderful harmony between the exterior and interior, which is so sought after by contemporary yacht designers. For instance, ‘winter gardens’ zones were created to further enhance the comfort of the social spaces with pockets of air conditioned areas both inside and out. The overall result is a superior ocean lifestyle experience for those aboard, so crucial for the best luxury charter yacht vacations.

Studio Indigo designed Joy’s vivacious and inspired contemporary classic interior, as seen in the images. Her flexible 8 cabin layout means she can accommodate a full 12 guests comfortably, which is also a popular feature in the charter market. Additional noteworthy features include a 3 deck elevator and a principal focus on health and wellness facilities, such as a large gym, a spa room and an on board masseuse.

“Joy is a testimony to what can be achieved when you genuinely start a superyacht build with a blank sheet of paper,” concludes Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuyl. “The owner’s wishes have been successfully combined with Feadship’s experience and the excellent teams from Studio Indigo and Bannenberg & Rowell to fashion a truly pioneering 70-metre yacht.”
