Taking to the waters off the Damen Yachting SeaXplorer build location in Antalya, the SeaXplorer 58 will be the third yacht delivered from the Dutch builder’s range of luxury explorer yachts following the 62m Anawa and 77m La Datcha (click for Review).
Damen Yachting handled the naval architecture of the SeaXplorer 58, which features an ice-class hull for safe operations in polar waters and a customised configuration designed to meet the globe-trotting lifestyle of the adventurous owner, who seeks to explore polar and tropical regions with family and friends.
Featuring an exterior by Azure Yacht Design and an interior by Design Unlimited, the 190ft yacht has a 36ft (11m) beam, a volume of 1,090GT and accommodation for 12 guests and 17 crew plus a captain. It has a top speed of 14.5 knots and a range of 5,000nm at 11.5 knots.
Enrique Tintore, Damen Yachting’s SeaXplorer Design Manager, said: “We’re very happy with how the sea trials are going and are looking forward to delivering this SeaXplorer to the owner in the very near future. She performed and looked great sailing for first time and is certainly a head-turning yacht with her unique colour scheme and design features.”
