Damen Yachting has launched its custom 58m (190ft) SeaXplorer 58 explorer yacht. The vessel was built in Turkey – the first launch from the shipyard’s Antalya facility

As a custom motor yacht, the owner worked with British studio Design Unlimited on the yacht interior, while Azure Yacht Design designed the yacht exterior. The SeaXplorer 58 has accommodation for twelve guests and a yacht crew of fifteen, as well as two specialist expedition staff. Built for world cruising and exploration, this yacht will have two tenders, motorcycles, land vehicles and a custom 11m (36ft) sailboat.

In a statement to the press, the Damen team revealed more details on the explorer yacht: “When not exploring unchartered territories, guests can unwind in the cabana-style bar and lounge, featuring an infinity-edged pool, located beneath the SeaXplorer’s certified helideck. On the Bridge Deck, in addition to the Jacuzzi, the sky lounge and dining area provide the perfect connection to the world outside.  The yacht also features the SeaXplorer signature bow point observation lounge, giving unrivaled views of some of the most beautiful and unspoiled locations on earth.” 

Built to withstand harsh temperatures and climates, the SeaXplorer 58 yacht has an ice-class hull and can cruise for up to 30 days at a time. Sustainability was at the forefront of her design, with a premium synthetic teak deck and wastewater tanks that ensure suitability for operations in zero-discharge zones of outstanding natural beauty.  

Tolga Karacadal, Operations Manager of Yachting at the Antalya shipyard said, “We are very excited at the successful accomplishment of this milestone of the project. Having seen the yacht in the water for the first time, it’s clear to see that she will be a head turner.”

Enrique Tintore, SeaXplorer Design Manager at Damen Yachting, said of the launch, “It was a breathtaking moment for all involved to see the yacht out of the shed for the first time. The SeaXplorer 58 looked spectacular in the winter sunshine, a clear testament to what the combined team in the Netherlands and Turkey, along with our subcontractors, can achieve together. We are looking forward to putting the finishing touches to the yacht and handing her over to her Owner in the spring. After this, we will be continuing our work, creating the first SeaXplorer 60, which is scheduled for delivery in spring 2024.”
