Damen YachtingCompany profile
One of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups, the Netherlands-based DAMEN has been active in the superyacht market since 1991 when it acquired Dutch luxury yacht builder AMELS.
Today DAMEN is a large family owned and financially strong multinational with 32 shipyards around the world and 9000 employees. AMELS handles sales and marketing activities for the DAMEN yachting portfolio.
The DAMEN SeaXplorer, unveiled in 2015, is the world’s first purpose-built, Polar Code compliant range of expedition yachts with full capability for remote destinations - from extreme polar to remote tropical areas. DAMEN has designed every detail of these ruggedised yachts for the most extraordinary adventures anywhere on the planet.
Purpose-built and finished to superyacht standards, the advanced Yacht Support vessels can reach 28 knots. The range is based on DAMEN’s highly successful SEA AXE hull form, but purpose-built for superyacht operations. Options include an impressive deck space for tenders and watertoys, dive centres and fully certified helipads with hangars.
