  1. Amels sells second 67-meter Sea Axe support vessel

    Amels has successfully sold the second unit in the Sea Axe fast yacht support line. You will of course remember the first unit, "Garcon 4 Ace" that debuted at the high-profile 2012 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) in September As you may expect, the second unit will be similar to the first however, there will be some distict differences.

    In co-operation with Imperial, a yacht management company which is known by its portfolio of prestigious superyachts built under its supervision, this latest SEA AXE is being constructed with an extensive dive area, designed specifically for scuba diving expeditions. The platform is also being equipped with a LY2 certified helipad, with a maximum take-off load of 5,000kg and a D value (diameter) of 14. This makes the heli-pad sufficient to accommodate a Eurocopter Dauphin or Agusta Grand, for example.

    “One of the things that owners and captains noted about Garçon at the Monaco Yacht Show was the potential dual-purpose of a vessel like the SEA AXE. They can see the potential as a support ship to a superyacht, particularly the opportunity to win back valuable luxury space on the mothership, because much larger tenders and a greater selection of watertoys can be stowed with ease on the SEA AXE. But some are also excited by the concept of owning a high-performance expedition vessel, and the decision to fit a customised scuba diving centre on this latest SEA AXE 6711 project is an example of how versatile this kind of vessel can be.

    “We are pleased to be working on delivering this project with our partners at Imperial, with whom we have built up an excellent relationship after many shared superyacht projects. With her superyacht paint finish, Bolidt teak and several luxury areas including the bridge and the Beach Club, the SEA AXE is very much at home in the world of superyachting – even if her primary function is as a high-performance support vessel”, according to Managing Director Rob Luijendijk. If the rendering is anything to go by, the second Amels Sea Axe 67-meter Fast Yacht Support may have a differently styled radar mast as well as a fresh superyacht finshed grey hull colour. Whatever the case, the newly sold fast support yacht will be delivered in Spring of 2014.
