Naval architecture by DAMEN  —  Yacht Support range: YS 5009

SHADOW (previously NEW FRONTIERS) is the first Yacht Support vessel with dedicated Owner and guest accommodation plus a host of yachting enhancements that distinguish the YS 5009 from its predecessors. With delivery in 2017, this updated design takes her Owner into new territory with a combination of adventure and superyacht support functions. For spontaneous weekend adventures away from the mother yacht, NEW FRONTIERS accommodates up to 6 guests who can also enjoy a Main Deck lounge, Sun Deck for relaxation and dining, and a large Aft Adventure Centre. The Yacht Support functionality is still there – with a large deck area, high-performance crane and extra accommodation for 4 staff, pilots, security or guides.
