The perfect companion for a life at sea.
In a world where luxury supersedes functionality, and indeed pragmatism, Yacht Support by Amels and Damen provides customised supporting vessels to elegantly transport a yacht’s water toys, tenders and helicopters.
Storage, is in fact a notion of nautical travel that gets vehemently overlooked. With the sole purpose of a yacht to provide lashings of luxury for owners and guests, the restricted space to host the added extras comes at a sacrifice of style and comfort. Yet that is where the innovative, yet highly original, concept from Amels and Damen floats to fruition.
Every single Yacht Support Vessel, ranging from 40 to 85 metres, sails perfectly in the world of superyachts. The supporting vessel should be seen as more of a benevolent older brother rather than a younger, irksome addition to the main yacht. As the hull and superstructure of every Yacht Support are faired and painted to expert precision to ensure they sail expertly alongside the major vessel.
All Yacht Support models are based on proven Damen platforms, developed to operate safely and reliably in the most challenging of environments. Cultivated from an exclusive, patented design, the Sea Axe Hull provides power and stability to comfortably maintain speeds of up to 20 knots in a range of weather conditions.
With the series starting in a nimble 40 metre vessel and moving up to an imposing 85-metre support structure, the potential carrying capacity is immense. Despite storage and support being the main focus, the Yacht Support is also furnished to the same standard of the crew interior seen throughout Amels luxury yachts- ensuring luxury exists in the smallest detail.
The Yacht Support is the amalgamation of Dutch expertise, from the specialist superyacht knowledge of Amels and the supervision of parent company Damen- one of the most prestigious shipyards worldwide. Designed to be by your side on every voyage, the Yacht Support makes life at sea plain sailing.
