The MV Sycamore is a vessel built to support the Royal Australian Navy by Netherlands shipbuilders The Damen Group. She was built in Damen's shipyard in Vietnam, delivered to Australia, for her sea trials, in 2017, and was accepted on April, 20, 2017
The Sycamore's design is based on that of the Damen OPV 2400 design, a design for a 2400 tonne "Offshore Patrol Vessel". The RAN classes the Sycamore as a "multi-role aircraft training vessel", and she is equipped with a flight deck, allowing a single helicopter to land.
She is 94 metres (308 ft) long. In 2014, her design called for her to be capable of 23 knots (43 km/h). Her design called for her to be able to carry 60 people. She has a multi-use space, which can be configured to help cope with disasters.
The RAN will not own the vessel, they will lease it. The company that owns the vessel, DMS Maritime, will provide a civilian crew to operate the vessel. Military personnel will provide the actual training.
"Sycamore" is equipped with a Terma Scanter Radar with a DBHG stabilized antenna and Terma C-Flex for support of the training mission of the vessel
Sycamore completed sea trials in April 2017.

Oh sorry my bad I spelled their name wrong in my original comment. DMS Maritime is the ones that are operating the Antarctic ship as well as this vessel. |
Assume that, like the other new vessels acquired by/through DMS Maritime, she will soon be transferred to AUS flag.
DMS Maritime, are of course part of the Serco Group and, depite the sourcing of many of these specialised newbuildings, not to be confused with Damen Marine Services (also known as DMS) which charters vessels from the shipyard group to operators.
The price looks a bit steep on the new Antarctic ship even Boaty Mcboatface looks cheap in comparison.
It has to be said tho, hopefully this ship and the Aussie Antarctic ship will have lots of local crew on board.
Thanks vokstar. The contract for Australia's new Antarctic icebreaker has been signed after two years of negotiations. Sydney-based company DMS Maritime, will operate and maintain the ship over the next 30 years, and oversee construction in Romania. Mark Irwin from DMS Maritime said the vessel would be ready in mid 2020. |

DMS Marine, if the ice breaker contract is anything to go by that is a name we will hear a lot about in the future. Wonder what this contract is like.
It is a cool looking ship though.
