Dutch offshore specialists Damen have launch their latest and largest vessel in the Yacht Support range, the 69 metre Sea Axe named Intrepid. The vessel is an evolution of the 67 metre range, of which two hulls have been built, Garcon, and 6711.
Intrepid is finished in a very minimalistic and functional all-white exterior. One feature that will however set her apart is the innovative heli-deck on the very aft section of the vessel, capable of receiving a Eurocopter AS365 or Agusta Westland AW109. The platform opens to reveal a hangar into which the helicopter virtually disappears into below deck.
Her narrow beam of 11.50 metres along with four MTU 16V4000 M63L 1A engines allow for a top speed up to 20 knots, with an impressive range of 4,500 nm in nearly any sea state whilst maintaining 16 knots.
On board she offers accommodation for up to 21 crew and staff members. 250 square metres of deck space is available outside for cargo storage and another 110 square metres of concealed space inside.
Hull number two of the 69 metre range is in build, expected to be delivered in 2017.
