Damen has launched the first hull from its expedition SeaXplorer range.
The 62-metre (203-foot) 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.
Damen’s in-house team were responsible for the naval architecture of the vessel, and exterior was penned by Azure Yacht Design. Interior design came from Carlo Toree of Monaco Yacht Temptation, who was specifically chosen by the owners. Fraser meanwhile supervised the build.
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.
