“What better way to prove the great advantages of the Yacht Support concept than a purpose-built showcase vessel?” says Rob Luijendijk, Managing Director of Amels, Damen’s luxury yacht builder and partner for the Yacht Support range. “Construction is underway at Damen in Holland and the YS 5009 will shortly begin sea trials. In Monaco we plan on bringing a full array of toys, tenders, a submersible and dive equipment.”
“The upgraded YS 5009 offers all the benefits of larger helicopters, safer operations, bigger tenders and a great variety of toys,” continues Mark Vermeulen, Damen Product Director Yacht Support. “You accommodate more staff and crew. Plus, we can deliver in eight months from signing depending on the client’s requirements – no other solution can match that.”
Pre-engineered custom configurations can be incorporated on board according to her owner’s wishes, including dive, sail, heli and hangar options. She will be on display at T-Central in Monaco from 28th September until October 1st.
