DAMEN’s JOY RIDER takes shape in the Netherlands

This week DAMEN’s JOY RIDER, now under construction for delivery in summer this year, arrived at Damen’s outfitting yard in the Netherlands. The first of the newly developed 45-metre YS 4508 (150 ft) design, JOY RIDER is perfect for the owner who wants to enjoy amazing adventures, undersea treasures and come face-to-face with Earth’s most spectacular wildlife.

JOY RIDER builds on the success of the market-leading DAMEN Yacht Support range. Since introducing the range, DAMEN’s Yacht Support team has delivered 12 Yacht Support vessels up to 71.5 metres (235 ft) in cooperation with DAMEN’s superyacht builder AMELS.

“JOY RIDER is a smart package that can be both a stand-alone and a support solution,” says Rose Damen, Managing Director. “Our approach has been proven in diving, exploring and marine conservation operations from Papua New Guinea to Antarctica. We’ll be at the Miami Yacht Show from 14 to 19 February and look forward to sharing our plans for JOY RIDER with our clients.”

JOY RIDER offers a fun and flexible configuration with comfortable accommodation and lots of room for high-end toys, submarines and tenders. The workhorse at the heart of the action is an impressive high-performance deck crane, making use of the aft deck space for tenders and toys.

The blend of superyacht support and stand-alone functionality includes Sun Deck relaxation, a spacious Main Deck lounge, accommodation for 6 guests and 7 crew/staff; touch-and-go helipad and high comfort thanks to stabilisers and the yacht’s patented Sea Axe pedigree.

The rugged exterior design disguises an accomplished yachting platform including wet exhaust, smooth power management, watermaker and large tank capacities, plus stores for provisions, petrol and beach party set ups. She is very capable, reliable and economical to maintain.

Damen Shipyards Group is the world’s leading specialist shipbuilder with 35 shipyards around the world, global service hubs and more than 6,000 vessels delivered.
