Damen signs 75-metre bespoke Yacht Support
September 11, 2019
Dutch yacht builder Damen is delighted to announce a new order for a 75-metre bespoke support yacht. She will be the largest Damen Yacht Support built to date when delivered in 2022. The customised inhouse design is based on the newly developed YS 7512 model in the Damen Yacht Support range.
Wright Maritime Group, the consultant on the custom design and technical development, will supervise the project on behalf of the client.
The Yacht Support, finished and faired with top yacht quality paintwork and deck hardware, will be 75 metres in length with a beam of 12 metres and a volume of approximately 1,900 Gross Tonnage. She will hangar a helicopter with a D14 value, has state-of-the-art environmental equipment and capacity for containerised emergency relief support equipment together with a wide range of specialised marine gear and tenders. The vessel will accommodate 45 people including crew, specialist staff and guests.
“At the time of delivery she will be the 17th Yacht Support delivered,” says Rob Luijendijk, Director Sales at AMELS and Damen. “She will also be the largest to date, which I think continues to show the scalability of the support solution for large superyachts. We are very excited to start construction and can’t wait to see this beautiful Yacht Support on the water in 2022.”
The YS 7512 is the largest Yacht Support offered in Damen’s range of purpose-built support yachts. Yachts Supports are designed to carry and operate all the tenders, toys, helicopters and dive equipment that owners want, without compromising luxury spaces on the mother yacht.
