AXIS (ex FAST & FURIOUS) is the first newly upgraded 55-metre YS 5009 (181 ft) from the purpose-built and high performance DAMEN Yacht Support range. DAMEN built the showcase YS 5009 vessel so that clients at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016 and Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2016 could come on board and see the Yacht Support solution for themselves. In Florida, one of those clients became the Owner. The YS 5009 offers all the benefits of larger helicopters, safer operations, bigger tenders and a great variety of toys. Plus, with client-specific custom configurations, the YS 5009 is ideal for dive and submersibles, sailing yacht and regatta support, and can also be fitted with a fully certified helideck or a helicopter hangar.
