Judging by the talk and laughter around the BBQ grill, it has been an unforgettable day of undersea adventures. For recreational and technical dives, submersible descents, scientific research and exploration, this is a professional set-up that fits seamlessly on the superyacht scene.

Watch demonstration dives of Triton’s superyacht-optimized Triton 1650/3 LP submersible on Shadow (ex New Frontiers).

  • Dive compressors and EANx (Nitrox) facilities for technical diving
  • Full-size certified decompression chamber for enhanced safety

That’s you – braced behind the wheel of a sleek sailing superyacht, preparing to pop the enormous spinnaker in the warm breeze. Yet life on board a sailing yacht has its limitations for your family and guests – unless you partner it with your Regatta Support Vessel 5009. Live the nautical dream with all the gear, speed and space you need for the ultimate high-end sailing experience.

Custom configuration

  • Keep your yacht light, fast, quiet and uncluttered – maximise luxury space
  • Take more toys with you than even a motor yacht can carry
  • Large, fast tenders for port excursions and exploring the coast
  • Helicopter operations
  • Accommodation for up to 20 people
  • Keep spare parts, rigging and extra sail gear nearby, but not on board your yacht
  • Workshop for composite, wood or metal repairs
  • Deck space and on board hoisting capacity for large masts up to 30 metres in length
  • Container logistics and technical spaces (rescue boat, provisions, laundry)


If you want safe helicopter operations night and day, underway and not only in calm conditions – or if you’re considering chartering your yacht – then you need a certified helideck. Set on pillars, the Yacht Support 5009 helideck is LY3 compliant. It’s a floating heliport.

Air support

  • Increase the operational envelope – no more flights postponed
  • Suitable for larger helicopters up to a take-off weight of 5 tonnes and a D-value of 14 metres
  • Full certification and firefighting capability
  • Still 20 metres (66 ft) of free deck space for tenders and toys, and use the space below the helideck for storage (2.20-metre / 7 ft free height)


For owners who plan to spend extended periods at sea, an all-weather helicopter hangar is an oft-requested feature – particularly for destinations off-the-beaten-path with underdeveloped aviation infrastructure. There are several hangar possibilities on the Yacht Support 5009, creating a new level of freedom.

Your own aircraft carrier

We’ve developed a Main Deck hangar with telescopic sliding doors to maximise free deck space. You can use it for a helicopter only (for example Airbus H125 / AS 350), or add a forward section for use with a submersible or automobile.
