Sure, you might have a megayacht big enough to tote along several water toys, tenders, helis, and submersibles wherever you go, but who wants all that junk cluttering up the ship? For the truly indulgent megayachtsman, Dutch shipyards Amels and Damen have the answer – the Sea Axe FYS (Fast Yacht Support).
The Sea Axe functions as a supporting ship that does the dirty work. Offering complete cruise logistics, the Sea Axe is designed to house your various water toys and even features a helipad. The Sea Axe can also carry fuels, consumables, waste and extra staff.
In addition the craft can provide security and shuttle services, act as a base for fishing and diving excursions, and can scout ahead for anchorages. The all-weather craft is available with various deck and interior configurations in 37, 51 and 67 meter lengths and boast of speeds up to 28 knots and transatlantic range. Although the Sea Axe FYS exhibits a great potential market, now it is just a question of knowing who all will buy it.
