52 metre Damen Sea Axe support vessel sold

A 52 metre Sea Axe yacht support vessel has been sold by Chris Collins at Ocean Independence in a direct deal to a US buyer.

Built in steel and aluminium by specialist Dutch yard Damen, she was delivered in 2012 as one of the yard’s Sea Axe series of motor yachts and accommodates up to 18 crew in nine cabins. No less than four Caterpillar 3512C Caterpillar engines with a total output of 6,000hp give her a cruising speed of 20 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles. She is voluminous too, coming in at 443 GRT and an overall beam of 10.10 metres.

The Sea Axe Fast Yacht Support function is a logical product development from the Sea Axe’s Fast Crew Supply role. Damen subsidiary Amels first identified the potential for sale into superyachting and then marketed the Sea Axe to superyacht clients. Her axe bow feature is designed to slice through waves and have excellent seakeeping in the most trying of conditions.

"We are seeing an increasing number of superyacht owners appreciate the benefits of a well-equipped support vessel customised to their particular requirements," says Rob Luijendijk from Amels, "This is why we are developing even larger options up to 90 metres in length."

The Sea Axe yacht support vessel was asking €10.5 million.
