Cor D Rover reveals designs for 50m yacht support vessel

Dutch design studio Cor D Rover has revealed its designs for converting a De Hoop fast crew supply vessel into a 50 metre superyacht support vessel.

This shadow boat has recently been listed for sale by Merle Wood & Associates and Camberley International, with the aim of converting it into a floating toy box.

The Cor D Rover design features a raised wheelhouse adjacent to the large superyacht helipad. The main deck features the crew mess and galley, while the 230 square metres of on-deck storage is sufficient for a wide range of superyacht water toys, including a submersible, two tenders, two Jet Skis and two canoes.
Accommodation is for 16 crew split between five double cabins and three bunk cabins. Dry, cold and freezer storage areas makes this shadow boat an ideal option for replenishing the mothership.

De Hoop adds that the fast supply vessel features a total load capacity of 200 tonnes, and it comes with a Class 1 Navis dynamic positioning system, which allows the shadow boat to hover in a set position without needing to drop anchor — ideal for diving fans who want to explore environmentally sensitive areas.

Power comes from a hybrid diesel electric propulsion system, including a pair of 3,516hp MTU engines that can deliver a top speed of 22 knots, which has been confirmed on preliminary sea trials.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch studio include the Horizon FD85 series, which saw its first hull launched in March.
