A 246-footer (75-meter) with a volume of approximately 1,900 gross tons is the newest, and largest, support yacht signed by Damen Shipyards. Equally noteworthy, the project will be the 17th Yacht Support handed over when her delivery date arrives. Since the project is still new, and entirely custom, that delivery won’t take place until 2022.
The team at Damen Shipyards wasn’t the only group excited to see Joy Rider launch on July 5. Yacht enthusiasts from around the globe got to see the process, too. The Damen Yacht Support team livestreamed the launch from its headquarters in Gorinchem, The Netherlands on Instagram. If you missed the live cast, never fear.
