On the 10th of December 2011 RMK Marine launched the spectacular RMK 4500, the 45 metre Ron Holland designed motor yacht that is nearing the end of its build at their yard. The beautiful yacht was launched using the yard’s special launch and recovery slipway that serves the extensive build and refit facilities at the yard.
The RMK 4500 has been built within the critical MCA 500GRT Limit and its layout allows for a capacity of 12 guests and 11 crew either for a private owner or the high-end charter market. At the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show it was announced that the boat is for sale for €19m and will be ready for an owner for the 2012 season.
Over the next few months full sea trials will be undertaken including dock testing of all the equipment followed by comprehensive sea trials, as well as the inspections required by Lloyd’s Register. The RMK 4500 has been designed to cross the ocean with maximum efficiency and comfort, maximising fuel range within the constraints of a twin screw displacement motor yacht. The superb natural stability and comfort is further enhanced with Naiad’s zero speed stabilisers, sized to ensure excellent performance.
A spokesman for RMK Marine said “You can now see the wealth of details and features on board that separate this yacht from others on the market.”
Powered by twin Caterpillar C32’s, there is more than enough power available to run at full displacement speed or to adopt an efficient fuel saving cruise. A comprehensive electrical generator system includes two Kohler 125 kW main generators and an emergency generator in a separate space. All this feeds the power management system sited in the engineer’s control room. All the other equipment onboard has also been specified to the highest quality standards in the industry, from Halyard to Muir, the specification of this beautiful yacht is second to none.
With the investments in its infrastructure and facilities, as well as in its labour force, RMK Marine has continued to raise the level of the Turkish Superyacht construction industry. RMK Marine can offer great quality and service, regardless of the structural material, from aluminium, such as used for Nazenin V, to steel & aluminium for the RMK 4500, or composites for the Oysters.
