by Miranda Blazeby
Damen has released a behind-the-scenes video showing the launch of its first expedition SeaXplorer superyacht.
The 62 metre custom-design yacht left the building hall on October 31, showing off her striking turquoise hull for the first time.
Due for delivery in early 2020 following sea trials, the yacht is set to be the first delivery from the SeaXplorer range which was first unveiled at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.
The 62 metre expedition yacht features naval architecture by Damen’s in-house team and exterior lines by Azure Yacht Design.
Interior design meanwhile came from Carlo Torre of Monaco Yacht Temptation, who was specifically chosen by the owners. Fraser supervised the build while EYOS Expeditions partnered with Damen throughout the design process.
Key features of the Polar Class yacht include a fully certified helideck and hangar, two tender garages, a dive store and plentiful storage facilities to ensure 30 days autonomy on the water.
