“It’s exciting to see how these clients are using Damen vessels to realise their vision of yachting,” notes Rose Damen, Commercial Director. She continued, “It’s not only about the capability to do more, see more and enjoy their yachts more, but we also see that our clients enjoy spending time on their Yacht Support vessels. So it’s very important that our vessels go far beyond commercial ship standards and that’s exactly where our experience and yachting know-how sets us apart.”
