Our Yacht Support range

Yacht Support vessels from our innovative range are purpose built to support superyacht operations – for example submarines, helicopters and large tenders and toys. Our innovative approach combines our proven shipbuilding knowhow with our experience in luxury yachting. Since 2009, we have delivered many Yacht Support vessels from 45 to 70 metres in length to our clients around the world.

How we developed the Yacht Support range

The disruptive innovation

Superyacht support is a growing phenomenon that is revolutionising luxury yachting. At Damen Yachting, we are proud to be leading this innovative solution for contemporary lifestyles.

Around 2005, we began developing this concept based on our successful SEA AXE hull form, an innovation developed and patented within the Damen Shipyards Group for our high-tech offshore services clients. In Yachting, we saw a new opportunity for the SEA AXE to lift our superyacht clients’ experiences to a higher level.

“We hope to inspire you with the myriad possibilities now open to you. Or perhaps it will be you who inspires us with your unique vision of the yachting experience!”

We delivered the first purpose-built 50-metre Yacht Support vessel to her owner in 2010. Named OBERON, she was quickly followed by UMBRA. We then began work on the first Yacht Support in the 70-metre segment, GARÇON.
