This month has seen the one piece deckhouse successfully fitted on Nazenin V, the 52m aluminium ketch currently in build at RMK Marine in Turkey. The 19 tonne alloy structure is 27m long 8m wide and was lifted with 4 overhead factory cranes clearing the hull with just 40mm to spare and fitting into the deck rebate perfectly.
This is yet another key step in the build, which is scheduled for completion later this year. The next stage of the build will see the running of services to the deckhouse and fitting of the upper deck floors and bulkheads as well as running the hydraulic system pipe work into the deck winch lockers.
Within the yacht several guest cabins and forward crew cabins are completed and all the main machinery has been installed. The shaft and rudder will commence installation this month and the carbon rig will leave from New Zealand during May ready for dressing at the yard in July.
All the materials and interior decorations have also now been selected for the yacht. The owner, Mr Koç, has a museum in Turkey and the Project Manager recently visited the museum workshops to view the chosen art collection for the boat.
Paul Johnson commented “the build is progressing well and the skills and workmanship available at the yard are producing what will be a premier class sailing yacht. The owner has been watching progress closely and is looking forward to taking delivery”.
RMK Marine currently has a busy order book with the new Dubois designed Oysters commencing build and a new motor yacht build to be announced shortly.
