Amels delivers first 50m Sea Axe support vessel

Holland’s Amels yard has delivered Oberon, the first Sea Axe superyacht support vessel. A 50-metre vessel purpose-built to provide round-the-clock service and support for a superyacht, Oberon is capable of travelling comfortably at high speeds in almost any sea state, thanks to the patented design of her Axe Bow.

With a top speed of 28 knots, this is the first vessel in the fast yacht support market to make use of the Axe Bow, and Oberon is already in active service around the Mediterranean. Amels’ managing director Rob Luijendijk explained the appeal of such a vessel for superyacht owners: “Space on board the mother ship is at a premium,” he said. “The Sea Axe has a large capacity and is capable of carrying a helicopter, tenders, toys, fuels, consumables and waste, in addition to staff and relief crew.”
