Hot Lab Yacht & Design are presently working at RMK Marine in Turkey on a comprehensive 43m yacht refit project. This recent work as well as motor yacht Karia that was displayed at the 22nd edition of Monaco Yacht Show in 2012, has demonstrated the quality of build and extensive facilities offered by RMK Marine, and led the Hot Lab studio to search for the possibility to present the spectacular RMK 5000 superyacht design project to the yard.
The Hot Lab idealised concepts show two primary variations, the True Luxury Explorer yacht and the Leisure yacht concept, 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 and 8 crew plus the Captain.
On the RMK 5000 True Luxury Explorer yacht 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” heli deck in order to enjoy the most out of the True Luxury 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 yacht tender of 9m can be stored under the main deck behind the engine room with a pair of jet skis that are disembarked 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 RMK 5000 Leisure yacht 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 superyacht designs 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 yacht designs is the location of the 10 person inside and outside dining areas. On the Leisure concept, the interior dining table is situated when entering the main deck 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 yacht 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.
Her robust hull is designed to ice class standards to overcome the harshest marine environments. The engines, hull design and interior layout have been arranged and thought through to give the owner and guests the best cruising range and seakeeping characteristics possible.
İn order to give the best range, RMK Marine will provide two propulsion packages, a diesel/electric option or a diesel only system with the higher capacity of fuel available resulting in no interruption on longer voyages such as transatlantic or transpacific crossings.
