The YSV62 has been designed for worldwide support of superyachts. With its extensive main deck area of 300-plus sq m it has generous space for storage of tenders and toys, landing and storing a helicopter, and yacht-quality supplementary accommodation to its mother yacht. Multiple configurations are possible.
The YSV62 is a comfortable and sturdy ship with systems to commercial standards for build efficiency, easy maintenance, and reliable operations. The vessel has an efficient hull form designed for low resistance, excellent seaworthiness and comfort at sea and with twin 2,240 kW main engines will give a maximum speed of 18.5 knots, a cruising speed of 17 knots, and a range of 6500 nm at her economical speed of 15 knots. For higher speeds, a triple engine option is offered giving maximum speeds of over 20 knots.
With a flexible layout there are infinite customisation options such as a heli-garage, submarine storage, dive centre, fitness/spa area, entertainment area, and overflow guest/crew accommodation, as well as a host of further operational options including ICE-reinforced hull, or conventional, hybrid or diesel electric power.
The YSV62 is able to replenish the provisions and water supplies of the mother yacht with extensive storage for provisions available in the cooled and freezer areas of the YSV62, as well as cooled waste storage.
A key design philosophy was to develop a “Green Ship” with a minimal environmental footprint, and naval architects Marimecs, established in 1986, have designed a superlative vessel offering great speed, long-range, and ultra-efficient running costs.
Paul Cave and Mark Seaton of Yacht & Villa International have been appointed Exclusive Worldwide Central Agents for the construction of 62 m Marimecs/Van Geest Yacht Support Vessel.
The YSV62 will be built by RMK Marine based in Istanbul, Turkey.
