Behind the scenes with Damen Yachting's SeaXplorer team

1 February 2023 • Written by Damen Yachting

When Damen Yachting's explorer yacht range burst onto the scene in 2015, there was nothing else on the market quite like it. The first two luxury SeaXplorer superyachts, La Datcha and Anawa, first hit the water in 2020 and not only revolutionised the explorer sector but provoked another two custom new-builds, including the brand-new SeaXplorer 60 due in 2024. 

Today, Damen Yachting offers three SeaXplorer designs ranging from 60 to 105 metres. The yachts are some of the world's leading long-range expedition vessels for owners wishing to experience unique adventures. Inside, the award-winning SeaXplorer is built with all the guest areas you'd expect to find on a world-class superyacht – and even with dedicated areas for tech and equipment, no compromise has been made to the amount of space and levels of luxury on board.   

With so many factors involved in creating the no-compromise platform, Damen Yachting collaborated with Bill Springer to bring the people behind the scenes to light, and what it really takes to design, build and operate a go-anywhere vessel.
