RMK Marine and Hot Lab Yacht & Design will unveil the RMK 5000 Explorer concept vessel at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show. There will be 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, the vessels have a smooth, uncluttered look and feel. The full displacement hulls on both designs provide long-range cruising, 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. This area can also be converted into a “touch and go” helicopter deck, which 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.
On the Leisure concept, the helipad is substituted with a 6 meter wide swimming pool and sunbeds, creating an environment of peace and quiet. 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 design, the beach club area is to the stern. A hydraulically operated transom door creates an extended area for the beach club.
Each layout has four large cabins with en suite bathroom in the central part of lower deck. The crew has four double cabins, a big crew mess and a laundry. On the starboard side, at the center of the main deck, the yacht has a spacious lobby, which leads to a huge master cabin with a folding balcony, a lounge area, a big vanity and a king size bed.
The yacht’s muscled hull is designed to “ice class standards” to overcome the harshest marine environments. 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.
