Superyacht Support Vessels for Personal Submarines

Share this Article

Superyachts with little storage space would benefit from a support vessel – not only for storing tenders, water “toys”, helicopters and personal submarines, but also to accommodate additional crew, and supplies.

A superyacht support vessel – such as M/Y GAME CHANGER – is ideal for submarine operations. Thanks to its high speed, this shadow vessel can arrive before the main yacht at the dive location, and have the submarine ready to dive upon the owner’s arrival.

It is easy to prepare a U-Boat Worx submarine for diving. After a quick pre-dive check, the sub can be launched swiftly and efficiently for its next underwater adventure.

Various different high-speed support vessels can be found in the Amels and Damen range. The smallest support vessel in their range is 43 meters, while the largest has an impressive length of 89 meters.

Another splendid example of a superyacht support vessel is YSV62 by Marimecs and Van Geest Design. She is 62 meters long, with an extensive main deck of more than 300 square meters, offering space for tenders, toys, helicopters and private submarines. The flexibility of the lay-out allows prospective owners to design it to fit their own unique needs and requirements.

 

Other designers and shipyards that have built outstanding superyacht support vessels include: Pastrovich Studio; Lynx Yachts with the YXT 36 capable of carrying a Super Yacht Sub 3; Kirilloff & Associates who designed vessels as M/Y Suri and the 90 meter M/Y Paladin Shadow.
