The prominent Turkish luxury yacht builder, RMK Marine, and the bespoke Italian yacht design studio, Hot Lab Yacht & Design, will reveal the complete concept of RMK 5000 Explorer yacht at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, running in September.
RMK Marine and Hot Lab idealised concepts show two primary variations the True Luxury Explorer and the Leisure, both of which have a great deal of flexibility to suit the individual client requirements and the tastes of the current market.
Designed with modern lines and soft curves there is smooth uncluttered look and feel to the design. The full displacement hulls on both designs provide long range cruising with thanks to the diesel/electric propulsion package under 500 GT thresholds. Both projects accommodate up to 10 guests plus owner and 8 crew plus the Captain.
On the True Luxury Explorer concept, there is a vast aft deck specifically designed to accommodate a tender of up to 10.2m. When equipping the aft deck with the custom tender, the area beneath is dedicated to underwater and on-water excursion toys including submarine, diving room, hovpods and jet-skis.
While the exact GA is in the configuration phase, this area can also be converted into a “touch and go” helicopter deck in order to enjoy the most out of this explorer superyacht and the areas it will take you to. This heli deck will give the Owner and guests the freedom of exploring even the most secluded areas. With the heli deck version aft, a tender of 9m can be stored under the main deck behind the engine room with a pair of jet skis that are launched using the winged shell door configuration.
In addition to these amenities that can be enjoyed with families and friends, special attention is given to additional storage, ease of provisioning, extra freezing spaces and cold garbage storage that combined complete the package of circumnavigation without a need of stopping in unscheduled ports.
On the Leisure superyacht concept the helipad is substituted with a 6 meter wide swimming pool and sunbeds creating an environment of peace and quiet whilst enjoying the ultimate cruising experience. The 9m tender is cleverly placed in the lazarette, which uses an overhead crane to deploy it easily over the side into the sea.
For both the True Luxury Explorer and Leisure yacht design, the beach club area is to the stern, thus providing friends and families’ unforgettable moments enjoying their culinary and drinks whilst admiring the activities going on. An additional feature comes with the hydraulically operated bottom hinged transom door which creates an extended area for the beach club.
The main difference between the interior layout of the True Luxury Explorer and Leisure is the location of the 10 person inside and outside dining areas. On the Leisure concept, the interior dining table is situated at the main deck entry through the convex shaped sliding doors and the alfresco dining table arrangement is situated one deck above on the wheelhouse deck.
For the True Luxury Explorer concept there are two interior dining tables seating 10 people at a time. The purpose of having two inside dining tables is to be able to dine on the sun deck (observation deck) with 360 degrees of view in an enclosed area that can be turned into an alfresco dining area at the touch of a button operating the sliding doors during your voyages in warmer climates. The other dining table is situated right on the wheelhouse deck.
The two layouts designed by Hot Lab has both four (4) large cabins in the central part of lower deck with en suite bathroom, perfect for the actual charter market. The crew has four (4) double cabins, a big crew mess and a laundry. This area is placed at the forward part of the lower deck. The crew area is connected by a dedicated staircase to the fully equipped galley on the main deck. On the starboard side, at the center of the main deck, yacht has a spacious lobby, going forward once arriving in a huge master cabin with a folding balcony, a lounge area, a big vanity and a king size bed. The bathroom is just in front of.
Layout of the upper deck interiors is identical for the two versions. In both – on the back of the wheelhouse – is located the Captain cabin, another day-head and a sky-lounge with two sofas, in connection with the exterior areas. The sundeck is more formal on the True Luxury Explorer version with a big rounded dining table placed in an inside/out area. The Leisure version has a sundeck conceived for full relax with a spa pool in the forward part, comfortable loose furnitures in the middle and sunbeds on the back.
The interior style and décor – which are following the taste of the Clients – will be fully personalised by Hot Lab : yacht & design.
Yacht’s muscled hull is designed to “ice class standards” to overcome the harshest marine environments. The propulsion, hull design and interior layout have been arranged and conceived to give to Owner and guests the best possible cruising range and seakeeping capabilities. İn order to give the best range, RMK Marine will provide for two propulsion packages: a diesel/electric option or a diesel only system with no interruption on longer voyages such as transatlantic or transpacific crossings.
