Purpose Built

With more than 10 Yacht Support vessels delivered or in build, Dutch shipbuilder DAMEN is the established leader in this developing market. We’ve taken great care to design the range to fit seamlessly on the superyacht scene, thanks to years of owner feedback and in cooperation with our colleagues at Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS.

SUPERYACHT LIFESTYLE

  • Upgraded interiors for staff and customised VIP spaces
  • Stabilisers and high comfort
  • Striking looks
  • Decks finished in artificial teak

HANDLING

With a huge free deck space, your crew can safely and efficiently deploy and retrieve all the watercraft you need. With modular deck loading, you can quickly tailor the equipment and provisions you need for each destination.

TONS OF CAPABILITY

  • High performance knuckle boom crane to safely launch and retrieve large tenders and subs
  • Standard container Twistlocks for quickly mobilising modular equipment and boat cradles
  • Below deck storage, office space, hospital and gym

SAFE OPERATIONS

Take larger helicopters on long range flights to your mother yacht and land safely in a wider weather window. Lowering the helicopter into the hangar protects it from the elements so it is refuelled and available for take-off without causing hassle, disruption and noise on the mother yacht.

NEVER WITHOUT HELI SUPPORT

  • High safety fully certified helideck
  • Bigger aircraft with higher maximum take-off weight
  • Operations at night and underway
  • Hangar with lift system for all weather protection
  • Refuelling, workshop and pilot accommodation
