77m explorer yacht La Datcha ready for launch at Damen Yachting

Written by Charl van Rooy

Damen Yachting is preparing for the launch of the 77-metre adventure-ready explorer yacht La Datcha in Vlissingen today. La Datcha is the largest of Damen Yachtingโ€™s SeaXplorer vessels currently under construction and comes fully-loaded with a range of exploration craft, tenders, water toys and autonomous systems that make her the perfect round-the-world cruising platform.La Datcha yacht launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesLa Datcha launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

Spanning five decks, the customised Damen SeaXplorer 77 features exterior design by Azure Yacht Design & Naval Architecture from the Netherlands who worked with Damen Yachtingโ€™s team of engineers. Her interior is designed to accommodate up to 12 guests in six staterooms including two master cabins and an equally-impressive VIP suite.ย La Datcha yacht launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesLa Datcha launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

A crew of up to 25 will include pilots and expedition staff to help operate the submersible, tenders, toys and aircraft. The extensive aft-deck on the SeaXplorer 77 is capable of receiving two helicopters at full rotation, both of which can be stored safely in the below-deck hangar. When not in use, the aft deck can be transformed into an entertainment deck. The yacht comes complete with onboard refuelling and ice-breaking capabilities with an IMO Polar Code compliant hull.ย La Datcha yacht launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesLa Datcha launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesLa Datcha launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

La Datcha also carries her own submersible, fully-equipped diving centre with a decompression chamber, two snow scooters or four Waverunners. Following her delivery later this year, the yacht will join the Edmiston charter fleet when she will be available in the Mediterranean Sea from October and in the Indian Ocean for winter 2020 and heli-ski charters in Russia from March 2021.La Datcha yacht launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesLa Datcha yacht launch at Damen YachtingPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
