Meeting every level of your needs

The FCS portfolio meets every level of need, from short-distance vessels designed to access smaller platforms in calm weather to larger, long distance vessels capable of operations in almost all sea-states.

Increasing safety during transfer

Damen’s Fast Crew Supply Vessels are focused on increasing safety levels during personnel transfers. The design is based on a large aft deck, protected with a large cargo railing, lashing eyes and a crash barrier for the safe transfer of deck cargo.


Twin Axe

Applying the benefits of the Sea Axe to a catamaran combines the best of two worlds. A tunnel with a large clearance above the water results in lightweight, low resistance to transfer personnel quickly and comfortably.


Coastal fast crew suppliers

Versatility comes courtesy of a wide range of modular sections, parts and equipment. These include propulsion systems, superstructure modules, deck equipment and sun awnings amongst other options.


Reduced fuel consumption

The Damen Sea Axe hull reduces acceleration and resistance, softens the pitch motion and eliminates slamming, resulting in unrivalled comfort and low fuel consumption compared to conventional ships.
