Alewijnse completes integration of AV/IT systems on board SeaXplorer 77 La Datcha
Alewijnse has completed a two-year project with Damen Yachting; the specification, supply and installation of AV/IT systems that play a vital role in the on-board experience for the owner, guests and crew aboard the 77-metre SeaXplorer La Datcha.
Under the tag line ‘built for adventure’, the SeaXplorer 77 is designed to sail in both polar and equatorial conditions. It has a range of 6,000nm and a below-decks hangar with space for two helicopters. The accommodation holds 25 crew to meet the needs of the vessel and up to 12 guests.
Alewijnse’s responsibilities included the full audio-visual systems for both the guest and crew areas, the ship’s IT systems (backbone, source selector, Wi-Fi, LAN sockets etc), CCTV, onboard telephones, TVRO, VSAT, an EntryPod gangway video phone and a Yachteye infotainment system.
The contract between Alewijnse and Damen Yachting was signed in April 2018. Alewijnse says it was fully involved from the outset, first at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania and then at Damen Yachting’s Vlissingen East yard in the Netherlands advising Damen and the client teams.
