Damen’ yacht “Five Oceans” has water under its keel

The 53-meter yacht “Five Oceans” was launched at Damen Yachting in Antalya, Turkey.

The unit with the build number is the second in the YS53 design series. Owner Tommy Allen was also present at the launching and unveiling of the name.

Tommy Allen is the founder and director of Five Oceans Global Solutions. He intends to use the new yacht for ocean exploration and conservation. “You can sleep on it, fly from it and move it. For us, the yacht Support is a platform that allows us to do all the incredible things we wanted to do,” says Tommy Allen.

Damen’s yacht to explore the seas

Rob Dolling, CEO of Verpeka Dolling Superyachts, is supporting the owner in the project. He will also manage the ongoing operation of the vessel. “This new next generation yacht support platform is very well thought out and designed and provides the perfect platform for the ambitious global plans the owner has for the ‘Five Oceans’. All our requests and modifications, some of which were admittedly quite complex, were always well received and seamlessly and precisely integrated into the impressive end result,” he says.

Jan van Hogerwou, Commercial Executive at DamenYachting, has worked with the owner on this project from the very beginning. He adds: “We are proud to launch this very special 53-meter yacht today. The YS53 ‘Five Oceans’ will be used to explore life beneath the surface of our oceans, a subject and cause that is central to Mr. Allen’s life and an important vision that we can contribute to with this yacht support platform. Seeing ‘Five Oceans’ on the water, ready for the final stages of construction before her delivery in a few months’ time, is the start of something really exciting.”
