Second Damen SeaXplorer yacht commissioned

Written by

Damen, in cooperation with Amels, has announced the sale of its second purpose-designed SeaXplorer motor yacht today. The new 75-metre version of the world-cruising line-up of luxury expedition yachts will be ready for cruising in the second part of 2020.

As is the case with each SeaXplorer vessel, this particular project has been designed to the owner's exact adventure requirements. Commercial Director Rose Damen explains: ““They [the clients] will be skiing and snowboarding on pristine slopes like Kamchatka and sport fishing or submersible diving in places like Papua New Guinea and the Galápagos Islands. They will be in places with no supporting infrastructure, no roads and no heliports within range. So we designed the SeaXplorer 75 to carry out such complex operations with the highest level of safety, redundancy and autonomy.

The SeaXplorer 75 takes superyacht helicopter operation to the extreme with an expansive aft deck capable of receiving two helicopters at full rotation when needed. Below deck is also a hangar where both helicopters can be safely stored clear of the elements. The yacht comes complete with onboard refuelling capabilities. When not in use, the aft deck can be transformed into a massive entertainment deck.

Her sleek yet robust exterior is the design work of Dutch studio Azure Naval Architects. A fleet of tenders and jet skis will also be stored below deck as well as a full dive centre that leads directly out onto the swim platform.

The full-custom interior being developed according to the owner’s taste will be able to accommodate 12 guests along with 25 crew and support staff. The hefty volume of 2,500 GT will assure a light and airy experience on board.

Damen is currently building the first SeaXplorer 65 motor yacht which will be ready for delivery in 2019.
