Following the preview of the Damen SeaXplorer on SuperYacht Times ahead of the Monaco Yacht Show, Dutch shipbuilder Damen has officially introduced the new range of yachts to the industry. The SeaXplorer is a purpose built, Polar Code compliant range of three expedition yachts that will be built from 60 to 100 metres.
The SeaXplorer features exterior lines from Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture, with the Owner being free to choose the interior designer. The three models in the range will be able to enjoy 40 days of autonomous cruising in some of the world’s most remote areas.
“A number of experienced yachting clients approached us about adapting Damen’s professional vessels, so we knew from them that there were simply no globally capable luxury explorer yachts out there,” says Rob Luijendijk, Amels Managing Director. “And that’s also what we heard from EYOS Expeditions who have decades of experience in bespoke luxury expeditions to the wildest places on the planet. So that’s why Damen began developing the SeaXplorer. The result is well beyond a pretty rendering. It’s a fully developed range – something only Damen could do.”
On board she carries tenders (including a dive support tender), expedition equipment, toys, submersibles, dive equipment (including recompression chamber) and up to two helicopters.
