Delivered in 2014, 6711 is an ultra-tough 67.15 metre Damen Sea Axe that serves as a yacht support vessel to the 73.51 metre Nobiskrug superyacht Project 783. Imperial Yachts commissioned the boat and acted as build supervisors and owner’s representative.
Not only does 6711 pack about a dozen tenders and a treasure trove of toys, she’s set up to ensure the seamless operation of both vessels. In the bridge, which resembles a flight control tower because the helicopter operations further aft are controlled from here, is a digital planning touchscreen that connects to all the moveable kit on board.
“We have a tracking system on all our tenders and toys, including the helicopter,” says the captain of 6711. The boat provides spacious accommodation for all the crew needed to work the vessel, who if required can also beef up service on the mothership.
