PROJECT MAR DE CORTÉS
Custom SeaXplorer 77 exterior concept by Azure Yacht Design
While the original SeaXplorer exterior draws its angular facets and surfaces from the shear faces of polar icebergs, Project MAR DE CORTÉS is inspired by the soft sweeping bays of Baja California Sur.
“Our design concept shows a different interpretation of the SeaXplorer philosophy,” says Enrique Tintore, SeaXplorer Design Manager. “The strong uninterrupted lines emphasise the yacht’s impressive length and height off the waterline – a secure fortress in an isolated destination. However, the superstructure’s elegantly rounded forms remind us that we are guests within nature’s beauty.”
- Smooth curves on transom and deck overhangs
- Uninterrupted deck lines
- Reimagined mast form
How can we customise your SeaXplorer’s exterior design? Together with our design partner Azure Yacht Design, we’d love to make your ideas come true.
AZURE YACHT DESIGN
We selected Azure Yacht Design, the highly experienced Dutch design and naval architecture studio, as our design partner for the SeaXplorer’s exterior lines. Their unique and instantly recognisable philosophy is visible throughout the SeaXplorer range. The masculine and virile lines communicate the exceptional nature of the yacht as well as the deep heritage of Damen’s shipbuilding.
Rounded shapes in the superstructure are echoed from the bow point observation lounge back through the wheelhouse, mast and decks.

“Her smooth curves give this SeaXplorer concept a timeless yacht feeling. We put a lot of thought into tailoring the shapes to fit with each Owner’s vision while still keeping the integrity of the SeaXplorer philosophy.”
