The ninth hull in the yard’s popular 55 metre YS 5009 design, Time Off  will now undergo outfitting ahead of delivery this summer.

Following in the footsteps of recently launched support vessel Gene Chaser, Time off  features a large main deck aft hangar ready to be adapted to a variety of configurations, including submersible and dive operations, equipment stowage or workshop facilities.

Time Off was designed inside and out in-house and includes upgraded AV, navigation systems and engine room installations.

Accommodation inside the 499GT interior is for a total of seven guests and four staff plus additional crew.

“The fact that Time Off is the ninth Yacht Support to be launched from our YS 5009 design speaks volumes,” said Yacht Support designer manager Wouter Kleijpoel. 

The flexibility this design offers our clients to really make the vessel work to their own yachting needs and requirements is what continues to make it so popular.”
