Damen launches 55m yacht support vessel New Frontiers

Damen has announced the launch of its 55.3m Yacht Support vessel New Frontiers – the latest in the range, following the launch of 69.15m Game Changer earlier this year.

Created to offer luxurious living for expeditions away from her mothership, New Frontiers has a large lounge and dining area, as well as a 50sqm sundeck, helipad, and an adventure centre aft featuring large stores, a dive centre, and A-frame installation to launch and retrieve submersibles. 

She is able to accommodate up to six guests across three cabins, including a main-deck owner’s suite.

Ross Damen, commercial director at Damen explained, “New Frontiers is ripping up the rule book. It’s still a yacht support vessel, but you can’t put this vessel into one category or another – and that reflects exactly the wishes of our clients. They want their holiday to be about freedom and spontaneity – New Frontiers makes that possible. 

“Whether it’s a weekend dive adventure trip away from their superyacht or enjoying two locations at once linked by helicopter, it’s all about unforgettable experiences and freedom.”

Damen product director Mark Vermeulen continued, “A Yacht Support vessel offers superyacht owners more luxury yachting fun than ever, but at a much lower total cost of ownership than acquiring more capability with a larger yacht. Plus, they get all the benefits of flexible operations, straightforward maintenance and privacy.”

New Frontiers has a top speed of 20 knots, giving a range of 5,000nm. She is due for completion in September 2017 and will make her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show.
