The Adventure vessel is the sixth YS 5009 design. Like the yard’s previous deliveries, including Ad-Vantage, Axis and Shadow, the Power Play has been configured for a blend of adventure and superyacht support functions.

In addition, a new 50sqm aft adventure centre/dive centre and facilities for operating in zero-discharge zones such as marine nature reserves are among the newly added enhancements.

Featuring a sun deck and a main deck-lounge with panoramic views, the yacht can accommodate six guests in three suites. With a gross tonnage of 489, she reaches speeds above 20 knots with a seven-person crew.

Damen Product Director Mark Vermeulen said: “It’s inspiring to see how a new generation of owners is driving this market. It’s very dynamic, it’s not the conventional thinking about luxury yachting.

“Our clients have fantastic ideas for diving, aircraft, luxury toys and serious boats. They are planning adventures of a lifetime and even getting involved in underwater exploration, science, film-making or racing yacht events. As a shipbuilder, it’s exciting to be a part of making their ideas a reality.”
