Dutch shipbuilder DAMEN has launched GAME CHANGER, its 70-metre DAMEN Yacht Support vessel (227 ft) with helicopter hangar last February. GAME CHANGER is a fantastic showcase of the Yacht Support solution for owners who want to have more fun off the beaten track, but with a significantly lower Total Cost of Ownership.
These types of client are interested in visiting exciting new destinations with less established superyacht infrastructures. The Yacht Support Vessel's primary goal is to support the mother ship with additional space for tenders, helicopters and submersibles, and for additional storage of supplies.
Damen Shipyard wanted to use the GAME CHANGER as a pilot ship. The question was to develop a system whereby the ship can be read real-time onshore.
