RMK Marine and Hot Lab's new 5000 explorer yacht concept

25 July 2013 • Written by Malcolm MacLean

Turkish yard RMK Marine and Hot Lab Yacht & Design have revealed a 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 either design, provides long-range cruising thanks to diesel/electric propulsion. Both projects accommodate up to 10 guests plus owner and nine crew.

The two layouts designed by Hot Lab both have four large cabins in the central part of the lower deck with en suite bathrooms. The main deck has a spacious lobby leading to a large master suite with a sea balcony.

Both concepts can be viewed at the Monaco Yacht Show this September.
