Next Generation Superyacht

Dutch shipbuilder DAMEN in cooperation with its luxury yacht builder AMELS have just launched the innovative hull of their SeaXplorer 75, a stylish, sturdy and highly customized 246-foot-long expedition yacht that’s capable of breaking through polar ice (in addition to providing ultra-lux accommodations and a wide array of toys and tools for polar exploration), it’s safe to say that ice class/expedition grade superyachts are way more than just a passing fad, reports Forbes.

Russian banking billionaire and adventurer Oleg Tinkov (owner of this extraordinary expedition yacht) has already been named La Datcha in honor of Tinkov’s growing collection of luxury hotels and villas in France, Italy and Russia.
