55.5m yacht support vessel currently under construction
Dutch yard Damen has revealed the first details about the new 55m support vessel named Power Play.
She will be launched this summer and will join the fleet of YS5009 vessels. Power Play will be the sixth delivery of the popular YS 5009 design from the Damen Yacht Support range.
"It’s inspiring to see how a new generation of owners is driving this market. It’s very dynamic, it’s not the conventional thinking about luxury yachting. Our clients have fantastic ideas for diving, aircraft, luxury toys and serious boats. They are planning adventures of a lifetime and even getting involved in underwater exploration, science, film-making or racing yacht events. As a shipbuilder, it’s exciting to be a part of making their ideas a reality.”, says Damen Product Director Mark Vermeulen.
Power Play can accommodate six guests in three suites making her suitable for short breaks away from the mother yacht or even a complete yachting solution. She features a sun deck and a main deck lounge with panoramic views.
The new vessel includes a 50 square meter aft adventure center that can be used as a dive center or a beach club.
The usual yacht support functions are available, including a 12-tonne deck crane and stern A-frame fittings for efficient launch and retrieval of large and heavy equipment like submersibles.
Power Play reaches speeds above 20 knots with a crew of seven and extra accommodation for four staff, pilots, security or guides.
