The team at Amels and Damen Yachting is proud to reveal a first look at the custom SeaXplorer 58 now under construction. When delivered in 2022, she will be the perfect expedition yacht for the Owner’s lifestyle of adventurous globe-trotting exploration with family and friends.

By starting the hull construction upfront, Damen Yachting was able to offer the experienced Owner a very customisable platform with fast delivery in less than two years. The Owner’s choice for interior architect, Design Unlimited, has created a very personal and intriguing interior design that celebrates the spirit of exploration.

Outdoor living
Under the certified helideck, the Owner has created a luxury cabana-style outdoor lounge and bar with folding balconies and an infinity-edged pool, says Damen Yachting’s SeaXplorer Design Manager Enrique Tintore.

“With fresh breezes and shaded ocean vistas, the whole aft of the yacht will be a beautiful and inspiring space to experience the world,” he says. “But the experience is not just about amazing views, it’s also out on the water with the SeaXplorer 58’s custom 11.4-metre performance sailboat, two large multi-role tenders and a wide range of toys. She also carries road and off-road vehicles and motorcycles.”

The indoor-outdoor living continues on the Upper Deck with the open sky lounge and dining with concertina-opening glass partitions to the jacuzzi. The high-volume yacht with a 1,090 Gross Tonnage features six suites for 12 guests and the SeaXplorer’s signature bow point observation lounge.

Safe and autonomous
The SeaXplorer 58 will feature an Ice Class hull for safe operations in polar waters, plus sustainable and low maintenance options, including a premium synthetic teak deck. The yacht has ocean-going autonomy for up to 30 days without port call with chilled garbage stores and waste water tanks for sustainable operations in zero-discharge zones of natural beauty. A crew of 15 will run the yacht with extra accommodation for 2 expedition staff.

Antalya yacht building hub
Following design and engineering at Damen Yachting’s head office in the Netherlands, the new build will be the fifth Damen Yachting delivery from the builder’s Antalya facility. The yard in Turkey’s premiere yacht building hub provides outstanding facilities supported by an experienced supply chain.

The SeaXplorer 58 will be the third yacht delivered from the SeaXplorer range of luxury expeditions yachts – a range born from a crossover innovation of Amels yacht building and Damen shipbuilding technology. The SeaXplorer’s exterior is by Azure Yacht Design – the highly experienced Dutch design and naval architecture studio behind all the SeaXplorer designs. The range has also benefited from design partner EYOS Expeditions and their operational design input gained from hard-won experience in the field.
