“We’re looking forward to showing our clients the next evolution of the YS 5009 at the Monaco Yacht Show,” said Rose Damen, Commercial Director. “The adventure element with accommodation and guest areas reflects the changing market requirements. This is the complete yachting experience with diving, submersibles, fishing, exploration, underwater discovery and fast toys.”
Like Ad-Vantage, Axis and Shadow, Power Play has been configured for an adventure blend of stand-alone and superyacht support functions. She accommodates six guests in three cabins, and includes a sun deck and a main deck lounge with panoramic views.
With 489GT, the high support capability of a Damen Yacht Support vessel is still there, including the 12-tonne deck crane and stern A-frame fittings for efficient launch and retrieval of large and heavy equipment like submersibles.
Power Play is the sixth delivery of the YS 5009 design from the Damen Yacht Support range. Overall, 14 vessels from the range have been delivered or are in build. On Power Play, the design team has added new enhancements, including a new 50sqm aft adventure/dive centre (538sqft), for more autonomy and facilities for operating in zero-discharge zones such as marine nature reserves.
Power Play reaches speeds above 20 knots with a crew of seven and extra accommodation for four staff, pilots, security or guides.
