Luxury expedition vessel delivered by DAMEN
Expedition vessel GAME CHANGER recently departed from the DAMEN yard after carrying out some modifications at request of the customer. The vessel was sold following her appearance at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2017.
This customized vessel will be used for marine conservation, ocean research, documenting ocean biodiversity and luxury dive expeditions. The GAME CHANGER is based on the DAMEN Yacht Support 6911 and measures 69 meter. The ship is characterized by an ax bow, which results in a predictable response to waves and mitigates hull slamming. On the other hand such a bow shape is not typical to do for example ice operations. Still, according to Sarah Flavell Press Officer at the DAMEN-AMELS, this yacht proves to be certified for Arctic and Antarctic operations in compliance with the IMO Polar Code.
The ship has a lot of high-tech gadgets on board. Such as a custom-built C-Researcher submarine by U-Boat Worx can dive to 1.100 meters. A deep-rated Falcon ROV by Saab Seaeye. A fully certified helideck and below-deck heli hangar. An Airbus H130 T2 helicopter, equipped with an 8k camera system, is also part of the equipment.
GAME CHANGER can carry a substantial amount of extra provisions, fuel, luggage and spare parts to support activities for extended periods in remote locations.
