After unveiling its SeaXplorer expedition yacht concept to rave reviews at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show, Dutch shipyard Damen sold the first model less than a year later. Currently under construction and scheduled to be delivered in 2019, the 213-foot SeaXplorer 65 will transport individuals to the most remote and resplendent corners of the globe. Equipped with a double-acting hull that easily slices through ice, the yacht will serve as a floating home base for those who want to embark on dive expeditions or encounter rare wildlife.
The high-tech hangar stows helicopters, tenders, dive boats, and personal submersibles, while a dive center and decompression chamber offer the perfect portal to explore the sea. A hybrid power system reduces the yacht’s environmental impact. In addition to standard features such as a swimming pool, hot tub, and observation lounge, the yacht has a large storage facility that can house supplies for up to 40 days at sea—making it the perfect choice for lengthy adventures. The SeaXplorer concept is available in a series of completely customizable layouts ranging from 213 to 328 feet. (seaxplorer.nl)
