Umbra

David Attenborough's research base in Blue Planet II

Sir David Attenborough recently returned to the small screen with his latest BBC nature documentary Blue Planet II. The renowned naturalist certainly knows how to make an entrance and episode one of this seven-part series 'One Ocean' began with him standing on the bow of the 54 metre superyacht support vessel Umbra while a pod of dolphins frolicked in the bow wake.

Launched by Dutch yard Damen in 2008, Umbra was refitted in 2014 to add a large helipad to her aft deck, which can be briefly seen in the BBC's spectacular aerial footage. The first episode also showed cameramen using a Zodiac RIB to film dolphins surfing off the coast of South Africa, while episode two 'The Deep' featured the 55 metre Auroux expedition yacht Alucia, which was used to launch a pair of deep-dive submarines, as Eyos Expeditions recently revealed.

Read on to see our round-up of the most famous superyachts to have graced our screens in recent years...
