RMK to showcase new explorer yacht concept at Monaco Show
by Malcolm MacLean
Additionaly, the 45m Karia, one of the latest builds at the yard, will be available for visits aboard during the show together with the debuts of the Oyster 125 sailing yacht Twilight and Oyster 100 Penelope.
RMK Marine and Hot Lab Yacht & Design worked together to develop the new 5000 explorer yacht concept in two variations. One – the Explorer version – has a dedicated touch-and-go helipad on the aft deck while what RMK call the ‘Leisure’ version has a six-metre swimming pool there. The exterior is designed with modern lines and soft curves.
The full-displacement hull, the base for each design, provides long-range cruising thanks to diesel/electric propulsion. Both projects accommodate up to 10 guests plus owner and nine crew.
