This is what I’ve found- Accommodations:Ad-Vantage was originally launched in 2012 as an Offshore Crew Supply Vessel by Damen Shipyards. A perfect platform to then be transformed in 2015 to the Yacht Support Vessel she is today, extending capacity and capabilities of her mothership Vantage yet accommodations still offered for 6 guests in 3 staterooms of her own. There is a forward cabin that can convert from a Queen bed to 2 Twin beds, a portside Twin bedded cabin and starboard Queen cabin for a versatile arrangement of staff or overflow of guests from her mothership, 150′ PJ Vantage. Ad-Vantage carries a range of tenders and toys for every occasion including a Triton 3300/3, 3 man, 1000 meter capable submarine, 40’ Van Dutch, 34’ Jupiter fishing boat, 26’ Rupert RIB, Nautique G21 wake boat, Hobie Cat & Seadoo. The interior of Ad-Vantage was refitted to accommodate additional personnel such as dive guides, submarine pilots or medic, however the simple, clean finish of the interior could accommodate overflow of guests depending on the intended use.


54m Damen Sea Axe refitted as superyacht support vessel Advantage


A 54 metre Damen Sea Axe vessel has been refitted and launched. Now named Advantage, she will be used as a superyacht support vessel.

As part of the extensive refit, Advantage was lengthened with a new transom platform housing a stern anchor. Her deck was reconfigured and 60 seats were removed and replaced with three guest cabins, a captain’s cabin and an office on the main deck.

She was given Quantum stabilisers and a new paint job, as well as getting an upgrade to her lower crew area and galley. A fit-for-purpose coal room was also added.
