The second Sea Axe 6711 boasts an extensive dive area, designed specifically for scuba diving expeditions. The platform is also equipped with a LY2 certified helipad, with a maximum take-off load of 5,000kg and a D value (diameter) of 14. This makes the helipad sufficient to accommodate a Eurocopter Dauphin or Agusta Grand, for example.

The working deck of the latest Sea Axe 6711 is equipped with a crane with a maximum working load of 6,6 tons at a reach of 16,6 metres. Put simply, the crane is strong enough to safely manoeuvre a large tender such as a 12 metre J Craft Torpedo weighing 11 tons.

Aside from its striking and purposeful appearance, the Axe Bow is what really sets the Sea Axe apart from others in the world of superyacht support vessels. The unique bow and underwater body shape enable the Sea Axe to achieve speeds between 18-25 knots in all sea states, making this a fast and dependable support ship – whatever the weather.
