New-build Dorries yacht support vessel for sale
by Malcolm Maclean
Paul Cave and Mark Seaton of Yacht & Villa International have been appointed central agents for sale of a new 62 metre yacht support vessel.
To be built by Dörries Yachts of Bremerhaven, Germany, the YSV62 has been designed for worldwide support of superyachts. With its extensive main deck area of 300-plus square metres, it has generous space for storage of tenders and toys, landing and storing a helicopter, and yacht-quality supplementary accommodation to its mother yacht. Multiple accommodation configurations are possible on this yacht for sale.
The YSV62 will be a comfortable and sturdy ship with systems to commercial standards for build efficiency, easy maintenance, and reliable operations. The vessel has an efficient hull form designed for low resistance, excellent seaworthiness and comfort at sea. Twin 2,240 kW main engines will give a maximum speed of 18.5 knots, a cruising speed of 17 knots, and a range of 6,500 nautical miles at her economical speed of 15 knots. For higher speeds, a triple engine option is offered giving maximum speeds of over 20 knots.
The YSV62 is able to replenish the provisions and water supplies of the mother yacht with extensive storage for provisions available in the cooled and freezer areas of the YSV62, as well as cooled waste storage.
A key design philosophy was to develop a 'Green Ship' with a minimal environmental footprint, and naval architects Marimecs have designed a vessel offering great speed, long-range, and ultra-efficient running costs.
With a build time of 24 months from contract signing, the YSV62 is asking €35 million.
