Sold: New 75m Damen SeaXplorer Expedition Yacht
Shipbuilder Damen, in cooperation with its luxury yacht builder Amels, is proud to announce the sale of its second SeaXplorer; a highly customised 75m luxury expedition yacht with exceptional capability for heli-skiing, diving and other tropical and polar adventures. The SeaXplorer 75 stands out with not only a dive centre and submersible hangar, but also a complete floating heliport for two aircraft.
“Together with his guests, our client plans to visit some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the world,” comments Commercial Director Rose Damen. “They will be skiing and snowboarding on pristine slopes like Kamchatka and submersible diving and sport fishing in 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.”
In accordance with the owner’s requirements, Damen created the highly customised SeaXplorer with a Gross Tonnage of approximately 2,500. The owner will take delivery in the second half of 2020.
“Our designs in the SeaXplorer range are a great starting point to quickly create customised yachts for specific owner requirements,” comments Mark Vermeulen, Damen Product Director. “The SeaXplorer 75 shares the range’s core attributes: compliance with the IMO Polar Code, the long periods of autonomy at sea, and the crossover of superyacht luxury with professional capability.”
The SeaXplorer 75 accommodates twelve guests as well as 25 crew and expedition staff. The full custom interiors will feature the finest luxury quality and finishing created by the owner’s choice of interior designer. The layout includes plenty of outdoor spaces for al fresco dining and enjoying the sun and sea, SeaXplorer’s unique bow point observation lounge with panoramic views, and seven luxurious suites on main deck and upper deck.
