The 69m superyacht support vessel Game Changer, arrived in London this week, mooring up alongside museum ship, HMS Belfast.
Built by Dutch shipyard Damen, Game Changer is currently for sale, and arrived in London following her recent sea trials in the North Sea.
Upon her arrival in London, she was carrying an 11.3m tender, 10.5m RIB, and U-Boat submersible on her main deck. She follows a similar construction to support vessels 6711 and Garcon, but with an additional 2.4m extension on the stern, to allow room for a helicopter hangar.
Game Changer is the 11th superyacht support vessel to be built by Damen, and her current asking price is €40 million.
Mark Vermeulen, product director at Damen, spoke of Game Changer earlier this year commenting, “Our clients want to go to exciting new destinations with less established superyacht infrastructure and they want to have more fun with larger tenders, larger helicopters and submersibles.
“They also want to take more staff, guides, pilots and security personnel with them. Game Changer is the massive leap forward in capability that they need, but at a much lower cost than a larger yacht. Plus, they get all the benefits of flexible operations and privacy.”
Game Changer is able to accommodate up to 22 crew and staff, and is said to be best suited to an 85m superyacht. Facilities on board include a large mess area and gym.
She is powered by four 3,000hp MTU diesel engines, and is able to reach a top speed of 20 knots.
