Damen, the parent company of Dutch superyacht builder Amels, is one of the world’s leading shipbuilders. Damen brings innovations to specialist markets, including advanced naval, patrol, offshore and ships for ice conditions. Damen is an international shipyard group but, at heart, it is still a family company. Whatever the shipyard does, whether it is in its building activities or its services, it always aim to match their customers’ needs and exceed their expectations. Client-focused, international and family-owned shipbuilder with Dutch roots, Damen is above all one of the most important manufacturer in the world.

The shipyard’ aim is a simple as clear: becoming a global market leader in the niche markets of shipbuilding, growing step by step developing quality vessels and services. Damen wants to exceed their clients’ expectations in terms of quality, innovation and reliability. Building successful relationships with customers, partners and employees in a safe environment.

The shipyard has developed a strong reputation in the yachting sector with its revolutionary Damen Yacht Support range (43 to 85 metres) with Sea Axe performance. Yacht Support vessels are purpose built to carry more and larger tenders and watertoys, helicopters, specialist equipment and ancillary personnel, while benefiting from Damen’s patented and proven high speed Sea Axe hull form. Its standardized shipbuilding concept is called “The Damen Standard”: it gives it the ability to offer to their customers well-proven and innovative vessels. The standard hulls, which all have proven designs, can also be modified to meet clients’ wishes and equipped with various options to suit specific jobs and regulations. Damen is also bringing Yacht Support range to a higher level with the creation of the SeaXplorer range, adapted for a demanding clientele looking for groundbreaking adventures at sea.

Delivered in 2014, the 67-metre length Fast Support Vessel 6711 was managed in cooperation with Imperial, which acted as the broker, Owner’s representative and construction project manager. Imperial’s technical team also made a substantial contribution to developing a state-of-the-art specification and additional outfitting.
