Damen Yachting Models Available


SeaXplorers are the world’s leading long-range luxury expedition yachts, with outstanding capability for the most fun you can have on the water. The SeaXplorer design was created by combining the best of the luxury Amels superyacht range with Damen’s high-tech shipbuilding know-how. These yachts can be delivered quickly with a customised design to suit each Owner. Damen Yachting pioneered this semi-custom large yacht-building technique a quarter of a century ago at Amels, and brings that same philosophy to Damen Yachting’s explorer yachts.

Every SeaXplorer is enhanced by the expertise and experience acquired by Damen Yachting over generations of shipbuilding. During the design phase, the shipyard collaborated closely with top designers and expedition experts, including EYOS Expeditions and Azure Yacht Design. The result is a high-performing expedition yacht with proven reliability. The 60M SeaXplorer 60 is an innovative hybrid explorer. The 77M SeaXplorer 77 is a luxury expedition yacht with all new features and lots of customisation possibilities. The 105M SeaXplorer 105 is at the top of the SeaXplorer range.

Yacht Support
The Damen Yacht Support platform is the perfect complement to the superyacht experience. The vessel can facilitate everything from a diving operation to additional guest accommodation and a vastly increased capacity for toys, helicopters and tenders. The design builds on two decades of Yacht Support experience and a deep understanding of high-end yacht operations, global adventure lifestyles and outstanding technical solutions.

The 53M/175’ YS 53 offers completely new naval architecture, building on two decades of Yacht Support experience, and offers a powerful deck crane, optional A-frame (both up to 5 tonnes), 250sqm deck space for boats, toys, vehicles and more, and the capacity to carry chase boats, day cruisers, sports boats and tenders. The 65M/214’ YS 65 brings multipurpose functionality and lots of room for tenders and toys. The helideck can also have a roll-in helicopter hangar without folding the rotor blades. Quality hardware and a perfect finish brings the 75M/246’ YS 75 to the top class of luxury yachting. Significant storage space capacitates all the tenders, toys, submersibles, vehicles, surf and dive gear you want, plus extensive below-deck storage and space for around 40 crew and staff.
