Dutch shipbuilding giant Damen has announced that one of the company's Yacht Support vessels, the YS 4508, is now under construction. Photo: DamenThe Yacht Support series by Damen has been designed in reaction to the rise in demand for ‘flexible yachting’. With a support style vessel, a superyacht owner may elect to prolong the capabilities of their existing fleet, or may utilise the yacht’s ‘standalone mode’. In standalone mode, the Yacht Support vessels are capable of bringing owners and guests on self-contained expeditions. Standard with helicopter capabilities and dive operations, the support vessel is able to be customised to the individual needs of owners.
