New DAMEN Yacht Support GAME CHANGER launched
Dutch shipbuilder DAMEN has launched GAME CHANGER, its latest 70-metre DAMEN Yacht Support vessel (227 ft) with helicopter hangar. Available in time for the 2017 summer season, GAME CHANGER is a fantastic showcase of the Yacht Support solution for owners who want to have more fun off the beaten track, but with a significantly lower Total Cost of Ownership.
GAME CHANGER is the fourth Yacht Support vessel in the 70-metre segment following the delivery of INTREPID, ‘6711’ and GARÇON. This latest launch also follows last year’s delivery and sale of the 55-metre showcase vessel FAST & FURIOUS (181 ft). With its Yacht Support range, DAMEN is now the established leader in this rapidly developing niche. In total 11 DAMEN Yacht Support vessels have been delivered or are in build.
“Our clients want to go to exciting new destinations with less established superyacht infrastructure and they want to have more fun with larger tenders, larger helicopters and submersibles,” comments DAMEN Product Director Mark Vermeulen. “They also want to take more staff, guides, pilots and security personnel with them. GAME CHANGER is the massive leap forward in capability that they need, but at a much lower cost than a larger yacht. Plus, they get all the benefits of flexible operations and privacy. That’s why we call it the Smart Stretch.”
