Joy Yacht

The 70 meter (230 ft) motor yacht was delivered by Feadship in 2016.




Owner of the yacht Joy

We initially were informed that Joy is owned by Napster founder Sean Parker.



But we also received several messages that Sean Parker is not t he owner of the superyacht.



In June 2017 we found out that Indian billionaire Sameer Gehlaut is the actual owner of the yacht Joy.



Rumors that ‘the owner of Joy’ is the ‘youngest client of Feadship ever, a guy is his thirties’ is also incorrect, but we did find out that Feadship is indeed building a yacht for a very young man.



Do you know more about this Feadship client? Please do send us a message.




Yacht Joy Interior

The Feadship Joy is designed by Bannenberg & Rowell, while the UK based Studio Indigo is responsible for the yacht’s interior.



The yacht’s interior was designed to create anatural flow between the interior and exterior spaces. Joy can accommodate 12 guests and has a crew of 18.




16 Knot Top Speed

The yacht is powered by two MTU engines at 1.800hp each. Which give her a top speed of 16 knots. Her cruise speed is 14 knots. Her range is 4,500 miles.

Sean Parker

Sean Parker is a US based Internet entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is the founder of Napster and was the first president of Facebook (at the age of 24). His was rumored to be the owner of the yacht Joy, but this rumor is not correct. We do think he is building a new yacht in the Netherlands.




Napster

In 1999, at the age of 20, Sean Parker co-founded the file sharing service Napster. The service allowed people to share  files such as MP 3 music files. Napster operated  until 2001, when the system was shut down by court-order, following copyright infringement claims.




Facebook

At the age of 24 Sean Parker became the first president of Facebook, when the company was just 5 months old. Parker brought Peter Thiel to Facebook as its first investor.



Parker negotiated a deal with Thiel, investing US$ 500,000 for a 10 percent stake, allowing Marc Zuckerberg to stay in control. In 2012 Thiel sold most of his shares for US$ 1 billion and still owns shares worth US$ 600 million.



Sean Parker received 4% of Facebook’s shares, which earned him several billions. In 2007 Parker co-founded Causes on Facebook, which registered 180 million people to donate money and take action




Sean Parker Net worth

The net worth of Sean Parker is estimated at US$ 2.4 billion. In 2014 Parker bought Ellen Degeneres’ Los Angeles mansion for US$ 55 million.




Philanthropy

Parker is the founder of The Parker Foundation, which he established with a US$ 600 million gift. In April 2016, the Parker Foundation announced a $250 million grant to form the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy.



Parker was ranked number 5 on the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s 2014 Philanthropy 50 list. In 2016 he received the Pontifical Key Philanthropy Award from the Vatican
