The latest Feadship is a stunning 70m superyacht, designed by Bannenberg & Rowell. The yacht features low volumes and a balanced use of exterior and interior spaces, driven by the wishes of a first time owner. Joy is one of the most challenging yacht built by Feadship!
“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 as my father did from the early 80s onwards with Feadship and others,” comments Dickie Bannenberg at the ceremony over the past weekend. “While our design studio has an excellent reputation for interiors, including twelve for Feadship owners, Joy is the first visible exterior design of a new era for us.”
“Our team was inspired by the sleek profile to create a natural flow between the interior and exterior spaces facilitated by the layout,” explains Mike Fisher of Studio Indigo who created the interior spaces on board. “To further enhance the feeling of space, a clever use of finishes, materials and styling makes the exteriors feel like they are an extension of the interior spaces. Moreover, every living area has windows looking out onto the wide walkways, making the rooms feel much larger than they are.”
An impressive wooden spiral staircase wraps around a glass elevator that connects guests with each deck. Unique sculptured pieces of art further enhance the custom experience on board.
“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,” concluded pleased Feadship Director Jan-Bart Verkuyl.
