The design, engineering, and project management firm from the Netherlands has illustrated the first incarnation of its Protean 95 as both a yacht and a yacht support vessel. Designed for a client that wanted a ’no limits’ structure.
With a mammoth 795m² of deck space the Protean 95 can house a fully-certified heli-facility with a helipad and under-deck dry storage with capacity for up to an ACH175 with full refuelling capability.
Multiple day cruisers, fast launches, PWCs, lasers, kayaks, submarines, etc can be accommodated and stored securely with 2 x 15 metric ton capacity cranes ready to clear the vast decks.
Forward of the main deck a sweeping six-level superstructure offers internal accommodation aplenty with a multitude of configurations possible for owner and guests, and crew and staff accommodation. This particular layout housing a complement of 44 including 4 Captains/Officers, 20 crew, and 20 Owners and Guests. The owner’s accommodation being the entire upper deck and offering a massive 273m² of internal floor space, 131m² of private external decks, all with the best views from anywhere on the vessel.
Ultimate comfort is provided with a swimming pool and wellness sauna & fitness spa, a fully-equipped gym, a cinema, and a host of bar and lounge areas.
Antoon Marten Wester, the Co-Owner of CBSPRO Maritime says “the beauty of this platform is that it is truly multipurpose and fully configurable to the client requirement. The clue is in the name with the definition of Protean being adaptable, versatile, multi-faceted. We see a variety of uses possible from a yacht support vessel, to a crossover expedition/explorer vessel, a race support vessel, a dive operations vessel, a entertainment/conference venue, a laboratory and research vessel, the possibilities are multifold.”
With a range of over 8,000 nm at an economical speed of 12 knots powered by a diesel-electric Schottel hybrid propulsion system, the Protean 95 is a fully adaptable vessel suited to both discerning private ownership and widespread corporate specific utilisations.
