DAMEN launches first SeaXplorer expedition yacht

On 31 October the first DAMEN SeaXplorer luxury expedition yacht emerged from her building hall in the Netherlands. When the 62-metre custom-designed yacht is handed over to her owners in early 2020, she will be the first delivery from the DAMEN SeaXplorer range offered by yacht builder AMELS and DAMEN.  The 62-metre SeaXplorer is a customised design with naval architecture completed by Damen’s inhouse design team and exterior lines by Azure Yacht Design. The owners selected Carlo Torre of Monaco Yacht Temptation to create the interior design and the Fraser technical team to supervise the build.

The Polar Class yacht has expedition facilities for 30 days of autonomy, a fully certified helideck and helicopter hangar, plus two large tender garages and a dive store. The power generation consists of a Siemens BlueDrive system with three variable speed generator sets and DC bus. In combination with electrical propulsion motors and a battery pack, the yacht has an economical and environmentally friendly configuration. 

Outfitting of the DAMEN SeaXplorer yacht took place at the Vlissingen East yard, located just a few kilometres from the yacht builder’s Vlissingen City yard where AMELS yachts are completed.
