Damen Yachting reveals revamped SeaXplorer 77 design

9 March 2021By Miranda Blazeby

Damen Yachting has redesigned its SeaXplorer 77 expedition yacht model to have an increased focus on exploration lifestyle.

The updates include a large swimming pool on the upper deck

The design update was undertaken following a “comprehensive review” by the in-house SeaXplorer team, exterior designer Azure Yacht Design and EYOS Expeditions.

The result of the review found that SeaXplorer clients want the model to stay at the forefront of expedition yachting and feature a renewed focus on exploration lifestyle.

A number of features to suit specifically tropical destinations have been introduced, including an upper deck swimming pool and party and DJ dance space large enough for 150 guests.

The multipurpose aft deck

Other updates include the inclusion of a multipurpose aft deck that can be modified for owner-specified requirements, such as accommodating a submarine hangar or storing and deploying a seaplane.

All SeaXplorers are also now offered with hybrid electric propulsion and a battery bank.

Speaking about the redesign, SeaXplorer design manager Enrique Tintore explained: “Visiting the polar regions once in their lifetimes is on nearly every SeaXplorer client’s bucket list.

“But so are many tropical areas where the operational challenges shouldn’t be underestimated. It’s about staying safe in isolation, but also about enjoying the yachting lifestyle to the maximum.”

The yard has also presented a range of new interior concepts too, including the MYT-penned interior exclusively revealed by BOAT International last month. Winch Design has also collaborated with the shipyard on a new SeaXplorer 77 interior.

The first SeaXplorer 77 expedition yacht La Datcha was delivered at the end of last year and is now offered for charter with Edmiston.
