rise of the shadow boats Show­case for sup­port ves­sels

SuperYacht World - - The Aft Section -

One in­ter­est­ing facet of the forth­com­ing Monaco Yacht Show is the num­ber of sup­port yachts and con­cepts on dis­play, sug­gest­ing this type of ves­sel is fir­ing the imag­i­na­tion of the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of yacht own­ers. The idea is not new – HRH Prince Khaled bin Sul­tan had Golden Shadow in the 1990s – but is cer­tainly a grow­ing one. Among the yachts on show at Monaco is Fast & Fu­ri­ous, a 56-me­tre Da­men Yacht Sup­port 5009 (shown) fea­tur­ing a dive sta­tion, heli-op­er­a­tion plat­form and slid­ing hangars. Piriou is show­cas­ing its YSV range of sup­port ves­sels up to 63 me­tres, and Lynx Yachts will have its YXT 20-me­tre on the dock at Monaco. • see our Monaco show pre­view, start­ing on page 10
