The Christensen 157’ model built by the American shipyard has been sailing with her original owner since 2007 and is now for sale. The custom-series yacht features the shipyard’s trademark bulbous-bow, which contributes to her fuel-efficiency and sea handling. Wright Maritime Group oversaw the construction of her tri-deck superstructure design and engineering.

Lady Joy can accommodate 14 guests in a three-double, two-twin stateroom configuration with an additional small children’s cabin located on the lower deck. The full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck forward includes a private office, ample closet space and an en-suite bathroom with a large spa hot tub. As the winner of the prestigious Showboats International Award in 2007 for Best Series Motor Yacht Interior, Lady Joy’s classic and ornate interior remains pristine.

Gadgets include iPad second-generation controllers, a home theatre in the sky lounge, a piano with recording equipment and a karaoke machine.
Why do we think this is such a good idea?
Lady Joy is a safe and reliable world-class yacht with impressive entertainment facilities. In addition to the onboard technology, the exterior facilities are built to ensure all guests can relax however they please. The sundeck invites guests to enjoy the eight-person jacuzzi, large lounge seating area, sun pad and full wet bar.

With easy access to the water and a fully stocked toy chest, Lady Joy has plenty to play with, such as diving and snorkelling gear, Sea-Doos, SeaBobs, paddleboards, water skis, flyboard, wakeboard and various tows, fishing gear and inflatable kayaks.

Where is she right now?
At nearly 48-metres, Lady Joy cannot be missed whilst she cruises at 12-knots back and forth from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean.
