RMK Marine launches 37m family explorer Seven Seas

27 October 2023 • Written by Dea Jusufi

RMK Marine has launched its 37-metre "family explorer" Seven Seas in a ceremony attended by Vripack partner Bart Bouwhuis, together with guests and employees of the Tuzla shipyard. 

First revealed as a concept in 2021, the yacht is scheduled to be delivered to her Canadian owner by the end of January 2024.

"We were keen to combine her typical explorer look with additional modern lines and curvatures," explained Bouwhuis. "We are confident that Seven Seas will be a head-turner for many experienced sailors in every port she enters."

Accommodation is for 10 guests across five cabins, with Epiworks responsible for the interiors. While full details are yet to be disclosed, the living spaces are centered around "natural light" and cultivating a "cozy atmosphere". Renderings released in 2021 by the studio included light-wood panelling, integrated lighting and a white-and-blue colour palette.

Seven Seas' design highlight is the mezzanine area on the aft main deck, which is "perfect for trawling" but can also be appreciated as a lounge area thanks to its far-flung views. When the concept was first revealed, other key features mentioned were a private top deck with Jacuzzi and a dedicated, 55-square-metre tender deck able to carry two 7.5-metre tenders.

"As our Seven Seas yacht construction project gradually approaches delivery to the customer, we continue our new infrastructure investments," said Gürkan Türkeş, CEO of RMK Marine. "Those will enable us to undertake yacht building projects that differentiate us in the sector. In this respect, Seven Seas holds great importance for RMK Marine in terms of our market visibility."

According to BOATPro, RMK Marine has two other yachts currently under construction. This includes the 50-metre Aries, currently for sale with Ocean Independence.
