Outfitting of the 62-metre SeaXplorer was carried out at the Vlissingen East yard and she is expected to be delivered to her owners in early 2020. The SeaXplorer range was first introduced in 2015 as a collaboration between Damen's Research Laboratory, Azure Yacht Design and EYOS Expeditions, who offered up hundreds of operational design features based on their expedition experience.
