54m Damen Sea Axe refitted as superyacht support vessel Advantage

A 54 metre Damen Sea Axe vessel has been refitted and launched. Now named Advantage, she will be used as a superyacht support vessel.

As part of the extensive refit, Advantage was lengthened with a new transom platform housing a stern anchor. Her deck was reconfigured and 60 seats were removed and replaced with three guest cabins, a captain’s cabin and an office on the main deck.

She was given Quantum stabilisers and a new paint job, as well as getting an upgrade to her lower crew area and galley. A fit-for-purpose coal room was also added.

As part of the transformation a submarine garage was constructed and fitted to Advantage, a process that took just 10 days. The entire refit took only four months.

“A phenomenal amount of work has been done in a short period of time” said Diverse Projects director Lars Bjorklund. “This is an absolute credit to the yard and all involved, given the wide ranging and very specific compliance requirements entailed in a refit to this scale. This is yet another refit managed by Diverse Projects that speaks to our ethos of precision scope delivery and outcomes.”

Advantage will have a Heila crane fitted and undergo further testing of her stabilizers and classification testing. She will then join her mothership in Tahiti.
