Luxury yacht builder Damen has introduced the updated SeaXplorer 75 design just ahead of the Monaco Yacht Show. The 76.9-metre superyacht features, as with all superyachts in the SeaXplorer range, fully customisable engineering and design.
The first two SeaXplorer projects sold – the 65 and 77 – are now under construction for delivery in 2020. The keel laying of a customised version of the SeaXplorer 75 took place in July.
“The SeaXplorer 75 is a yacht for all seasons for clients who want to make more use of their time to explore the world,” comments Rose Damen, Managing Director. “The combination of our Amels luxury yachting knowhow with our Damen Shipyards Group experience delivering commercial vessels is really unique – and you can see that in the design. The SeaXplorer 75 offers serious global capability but with true superyacht refinement at home in any marina. We’ve also designed her to be customised to our client’s bespoke requirements.”
The six-deck expedition yacht offers luxury accommodation for 12 guests with an owners apartment, two VIP Suites and bow point observation lounge and outdoor deck. The exterior styling, developed by Azure Yacht Design, features helipad for two helicopters, a below-deck hangar, dive centre and two tender garages fore and aft.
The SeaXplorer has the capacity for provisions, fuel, waste water holding tanks and garbage management for up to 40 days with no port calls. The Ice Class and IMO Polar Code compliant design is available in a range of five designs up to 100-metres.
The immediate success of the range has established the Damen SeaXplorer as the leading luxury expedition yacht.
