Yacht Support

Exterior design by Damen Yachting

Industrial chic

UMBRA is one of the two original YS 5009s – the deliveries in 2010 that created the Yacht Support phenomenon. You may remember UMBRA as the filmmaker’s helicopter base in the BBC Blue Planet documentary series. Under new ownership, a major refit has transformed her into a modular multitasker.

“I see UMBRA as more of an exploration vessel, rather than only support to the mother yacht. This is one of the coolest boats to go around the world with. We like to describe her design as industrial chic. I’m a huge fan of the build quality and UMBRA’s seakeeping abilities. She’s super comfortable, with a max speed of 21 knots and comfortable 12.5 knots cruise.”
– Llyn Buckwalter, Captain UMBRA
