Last week, RMK and Hot Lab Yacht & Design introduced the RMK 5000 design project. Today we receive more details of the project. The Hot Lab idealised concepts show 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 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 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.
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 this 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 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 Leisure 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.
