The Netherlands-based shipbuilder Damen is delighted to announce a new order for a 75-meter bespoke support yacht. She will be the largest Damen Yacht Support built to date after being delivered in 2022. The tailored inhouse design is based on the newly developed Yacht Support (YS) 7512 model in the Damen Yacht Support range.

Wright Maritime Group, the consultant on the custom design and technical development, will supervise the project on behalf of the client.

The YS will be 75 m in length with a beam of 12 m and a volume of about 1,900 GT. She will hangar a helicopter with a D14 value, has state-of-the-art environmental equipment and capacity for containerized emergency relief support equipment together with a wide range of specialised marine gear and tenders. The vessel will accommodate in total 45 people, including crew, specialist staff and guests.

“At the time of delivery she will be the 17th Yacht Support delivered,” says Rob Luijendijk, Director Sales at AMELS and DAMEN. “She will also be the largest to date, which I think continues to show the scalability of the support solution for large superyachts. We are very excited to start construction and can’t wait to see this beautiful Yacht Support on the water in 2022.”

The YS 7512 is the largest Yacht Support in Damen’s range of purpose-built support yachts. The vessels are designed to carry and operate all the tenders, toys, helicopters and dive equipment that owners want, without compromising luxury spaces on the mother yacht.
