Damen support vessel Umbra back on the market

https://www.boatinternational.com/yacht-market-intelligence/brokerage-sales-newsSold in March 2017, the 54 metre motor yacht support vessel Umbra is back on the market, listed for sale by Rodd Taylor and Neil Emmott at Superyacht Sales & Charter, according to Boat International.

Built in steel and aluminium by Dutch yard Damen with naval architecture by Azure Naval Architects, she was delivered in 2010 and had a major refit in 2014. The refit, at Oceania Marine in Whangarei, New Zealand, involved lengthening her stern by two metres and adding a large heli-deck. She also now has a helicopter refueling station with an 8,500 litre capacity and the statutory fire fighting equipment. She had a further mult-million dollar refit in 2017.

Although she was designed and built as a high-capacity yacht support vessel, this superyacht has found a new purpose in recent years. Umbra has now been used worldwide from New Zealand to Vanuatu to Ecuador and most places in between on humanitarian aid and disaster relief missions for earthquake and typhoon victims.

Read more about her massive fuel capacity, fast speeds, long range and vast water tank capacities, as well as a heavy duty crane able to lift containers and pallets of supplies off her decks on Boat International.
