Much of the details linked to the build of YS5302 have been surrounded by secrecy with little information being made available. Recently, owner Tommy Allen shared a little insight into the plans he has with YS53 Five Oceans as part of the Damen Yachting YS Insider series. Allen is the founder and director of Five Oceans Global Solutions. His dedication to cutting-edge technology and marine exploration, while actively working towards preserving the marine environment, will form part of the programme.

Jan van Hogerwou, commercial executive at Damen Yachting: ‘We are proud to be launching this very special 53-metre Yacht Support today. YS53 Five Oceans will be used to research life below the surface of our oceans, a topic and cause central to Mr. Allen’s operations and an important vision that we are honoured to be contributing to with this Yacht Support platform. Seeing her out in the open and ready for the final stages of her build before her delivery just a couple of months from now is the start of something truly exciting.’
