The Yacht Support story

Superyacht support is a growing phenomenon that is revolutionizing luxury yachting.

At Damen Yachting, we are proud to be leading this innovative solution for contemporary lifestyles.

How it started: from YS 5009 to YS 53

The YS 5009 design, the original Damen Sea Axe introduced in 2010, paved the way for our new Yacht Support range. After 9 deliveries, all originals for very different missions at destinations all around the world, we introduced our latest design in 2022, a brand new development called YS 53.

The big supporters: from YS 6711 to YS 75

At the 70-metre plus market, the highly regarded GARÇON rewrote the playbook with her delivery in 2012. A YS 6711, the design saw a total of 4 deliveries including the extended YS 6911 model. The next generation follows with the 2022 delivery of the YS 75.
