GAME CHANGER is an impressive support vessel that provides the ultimate experience for guests who wish to have fun off the beaten track while significantly reducing the usual cost of ownership for a yacht this size.
She has a huge storage and guest capacity and really offers the ultimate yachting solution for professional helicopter operations. With her 227 ft LOA and 820 square feet of deck space, she is the ideal yacht for those who want to do more with more equipment, toys and staff. She is perfectly equipped to support wide-ranging operations with the benefits of flexible operations and privacy. Her interior is bright, with use of neutral fabrics and light wooden panels.
With an additional interior 110 m2 of indoor space, needless to say, she offers guests plenty of room for any activity on board as well as storage for large water toys.
Her certified helipad on the aft deck allows a large helicopter to be lowered below deck into the safety of an enclosed hangar. She has onboard refueling capabilities also.
Another great feature of this yacht is the dive centre below deck, complete with decompression chamber.
Built on speculation and launched in February 2017, Game Changer is capable of carrying an 11.3 metre Wajer tender, a 10.5 metre Damen RIB and a U-Boat Worx submersible on the main deck. She is based on the same patented Damen Sea Axe hull as 6711 and Garcon, but with a 2.04 metre stern extension to allow for a helicopter hangar.

So owners get a brand new Damen Yacht Support vessel that meets their unique requirements, but within a matter of months — not years.”
Game Changer’s key features include 250 square metres of open deck space for storing tenders and water toys via the large deck crane with a lifting capacity of 15 tonnes. A further 110 square metres of air conditioned storage space below decks creates the perfect spot for a dive centre.

Commercial director Rose Damen added: “It’s exciting to see how these clients are using Damen vessels to realise their vision of yachting.
