Game changers at Monaco Yacht Show

By Staff Writer - August 27, 2017

The organisers of the Monaco Yacht Show have revealed the 125 yachts that will be exhibited September 27-30.

Over the show’s three days, 42 newly launched vessels will make their debut at Port Hercules in front of owners, industry professionals and press. Brokerage houses will be showing off these latest vessels from some of the biggest shipyards in the world.

Superyacht Investor has decided that the top two super yachts to see at the show are the DAMEN Game Changer and the Home Heesen.

Technically, the DAMEN Game Changer is a 70-metre yacht support vessel featuring 250 square metres of open deck space and, of course, its own helicopter landing pad and hangar.

It is powered by four 3,000hp MTU 16V4000 M63L diesel engines, achieving a top speed of 20 knots and a cruising range of 4,500 nautical miles at 60 knots. There’s a large deck crane, making it easy to load a number of smaller tender vessels or submersibles.

Billed as “the world’s first fast displacement yacht”, the Home Heesen is a 49.8-metre motor yacht that has exceeded its contractual top speed of 16.3 knots in its diesel engine mode. It also features a hybrid propulsion mode, powered by two 127kW water-cooled motors, with a top speed of just over nine knots.

The vessel’s vertical bow, fixed swim platform and floor-to-ceiling glass windows present a unique profile. The architect is Frank Laupman, of Omega Architects, and the interior was designed by Cristiano Gatto.
