New 43-metre Yacht Support design for helicopter operations

The recently upgraded Yacht Support range, starting with the new YS 4008, packs a whole lot of capability in five purpose-built SEA AXE vessels. Built by DAMEN in cooperation with luxury yacht builder AMELS, the range creates exciting new possibilities for yachting adventures – particularly for Owners looking for a fast and effective way to enable helicopter operations.

The recently upgraded Yacht Support range, starting with the new YS 4008, packs a whole lot of capability in five purpose-built SEA AXE vessels. Built by DAMEN in cooperation with luxury yacht builder AMELS, the range creates exciting new possibilities for yachting adventures – particularly for Owners looking for a fast and effective way to enable helicopter operations.

“The new 43-metre design gives Owners an immediate boost of capability and self-sufficiency without compromising the luxury experience,” explains DAMEN Product Director Mark Vermeulen. “From helicopter operations to more tenders and toys, Yacht Support is freedom without turning your superyacht into a cargo and equipment carrier.”

43-metre hardworker with superyacht looks 

The YS 4008’s patented and proven SEA AXE hull form delivers outstanding stability and seakeeping performance in speeds up to 20 knots. However, that’s where the Yacht Support’s similarities with its DAMEN offshore and military cousins end.

“The Yacht Support range benefits from the synergy of DAMEN’s shipbuilding know-how with our luxury yacht builder AMELS’ deep understanding of what superyacht Owners require,” Mark explains. “That means not only the exterior finishing and fairing to match superyacht looks, but also the upgraded crew interiors and lots of quality design features specified together with Owner feedback and the experts at AMELS.” 

The YS 4008’s 140 square-metre deck is designed for touch and go helicopter landings up to 3,000 kg maximum take-off weight. There’s room to carry waverunners, fast tenders, toys, submersibles, vehicles and large limo tenders. The design accommodates more staff and increases autonomy with freezer and cool stores, laundry, workshop and spare parts store. 

Range of capabilities for helicopter operations 

For even more helicopter capability, the new YS 5509 adds a fully certified LY3 / MCA helideck with a maximum take-off weight of 5,000kg. Plus, the extended YS 6911 features the ultimate technical area for serious superyacht helicopter operations – a fully enclosed hangar lift system for full protection from the environment, plus a workshop for helicopter maintenance, a spare parts store and an improved deck layout with an office for the helicopter pilots.

In addition to enhanced helicopter operations, the YS 6911 is also the ideal base for diving adventures, with a fully equipped Dive Centre including compressors and recompression chamber. 

With a total of 8 Yacht Support projects delivered or under construction, DAMEN’s innovative 43 to 85-metre range has proven highly successful with superyacht Owners.
