First custom SeaXplorer 58 hits the water at Damen Yachting

25 January 2023• Written by Katia Damborsky

Damen Yachting has announced the launch of its 58-metre SeaXplorer 58. The custom explorer yacht was lowered into the water at the yard's Antalya facility, marking the first SeaXplorer model to have been built in Turkey. 

Due to be delivered in the coming months, the yacht was started on speculation and sold to a buyer during construction. The yacht's new owner was able to offer "considerable input" into its design, working in collaboration with British studio Design Unlimited on the interior. Azure Yacht Design has created the exterior and the yacht features a number of contributions from design partner EYOS Expeditions. 

The yard has previously said that the owner intends to use the yacht for "globetrotting exploration". An ice-class hull and 30 days of autonomy will help facilitate her adventures, while eco-focused features like large waste tanks will ensure she can cruise in sensitive environments without leaving an impact.  

The SeaXplorer 58 carries a variety of toys and tenders, including two multi-use tenders, motorcycles and vehicles for both on and off-road use. She also has an 11.4-metre sail sailing yacht in her arsenal.

When not exploring, guests can make use of the lower deck's cabana-style bar, lounge and infinity-edged pool. There is an alternative lounge area on the bridge deck with a Jacuzzi, skylounge and dining area and the yacht also has the SeaXplorer signature observation lounge tucked into the bow. 

The 1,090GT superyacht can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins with a complement of fifteen crew, plus two expedition staff. The yacht's interior themes are  “very personal and intriguing” and will “celebrate the spirit of exploration”, according to the yard. 

Enrique Tintore, SeaXplorer design manager at Damen Yachting, called the launch "a breathtaking moment". 

"She looked spectacular in the winter sunshine, a clear testament to what the combined team in the Netherlands and Turkey, along with our subcontractors, can achieve together," he continued. "We are looking forward now to putting the finishing touches to the yacht and handing her over to her owner in the spring."

Tintore also said that the team would now turn their attention to the first SeaXplorer 60, which is scheduled for delivery in spring 2024.

The new 60-metre SeaXplorer 60 will feature an interior design from H2 Yacht Design and offer enhanced sustainability courtesy of Hybrid by Amels technology. This feature enables cruising at speeds of up to seven knots on electric propulsion, which claims to significantly lower noise, vibration and emissions. 

This will be the third yacht delivered from Damen Yachting’s SeaXplorer range following the SeaXplorer 62 Anawa and SeaXplorer 77 La Datcha.
