Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

On 5 July, Dutch #yacht builder #amels and DAMEN launched #joyrider, the first 46-metre YS 4508 (151 ft) from the DAMEN #yacht Support range. Following outfitting at the DAMEN yard in the Netherlands, #joyrider will be available for immediate delivery in September when she joins the fleet of 15 DAMEN #yacht Supports built to date. #amels and DAMEN will showcase #joyrider at the Monaco #yacht Show 25-28 September.

The newly developed YS 4508 design is perfect for the owner who wants to enjoy amazing adventures, undersea treasures and come face-to-face with Earth’s most spectacular wildlife.


The YS 4508 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 6.7-tonne deck crane, making use of the aft deck space for tenders and toys.

The blend of #superyacht support and stand-alone functionality includes outdoor sun and shade on Bridge Deck, a spacious Main Deck lounge, accommodation for 6 guests and 7 crew; touch-and-go helipad and high comfort thanks to zero-speed stabilisers and the yacht’s patented Sea Axe pedigree.


The rugged exterior design with a stylish paint scheme encloses an accomplished yachting platform including wet exhaust for all engines, smooth power management, generators in sound enclosures, fancoil-based HVAC system, watermaker and large tank capacities. The support #yacht also has big cool and freeze stores for provisions, a petrol store and multifunctional stores – for example for beach party set ups. #joyrider is very capable, reliable and economical to maintain.

JOY RIDER builds on the success of the market-leading DAMEN #yacht Support range. Since introducing the range, the DAMEN team has delivered 15 DAMEN #yacht Supportsup to 71.5 metres in length (235 ft).
