New 55.5 metre Damen support vessel YS 5009 sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Currently under construction in steel and aluminium as the seventh hull in this series, delivery is expected in summer 2019.
As with her sisterships, YS 5009 offers on board accommodation for up to six guests split across three cabins — meaning that this is not just a crew vessel; owners can choose to have a short trip away from the mothership and enjoy the panoramic views from the main deck lounge or the sundeck.
Crew quarters are large enough for an operational crew of seven people and four further staff, such as pilots, security guards or local guides.
Peter Brown of Burgess comments: “It has been a pleasure working with the Amels and Damen team on the sale of this Yacht Support vessel and we now eagerly anticipate the delivery of what will be a truly spectacular support vessel.’’ The buyer has appointed Burgess Technical Services to assist with supervising the rest of the build process.
Her top speed will be 20 knots with a maximum cruising range of 5,000 nautical miles at 16 knots powered by four Caterpillar 3512-C diesel engines.
The asking price of the Damen YS 5009 has been withheld.
