The 45m luxury yacht Karia, designed by Ron Holland, with interior by Design Unlimited was launched at the end of 2011. Designed for the experienced yacht owner for long distance voyaging, this new yacht has been built to extremely high quality and specifications with long term low maintenance as a priority requirement. Particular attention has been given to ensure an efficient and sea kindly hull design, low vibration and noise as well as exceptional interior volume for this stunning vessel.

There are a number of features that separate the Karia yacht from many others.

The 500GT sized yacht, has an exceptional use of space to maximise comfort with light, airy and versatile spaces for up to 12 guests. The owners are afforded plenty of privacy on the master deck and the vessel incorporates a swimming platform aft and 2 yacht tenders stored under the foredeck.

Karia is also for sale and visitors during the trials that are now underway have been tremendously impressed with the design, content and the quality of construction.

The Oyster 100 sailing yacht Sarafin, that was completed last year at the RMK Marine yard, has also been nominated and selected as a finalist in its category. The vessel has had a great deal of very favourable press since its launch and is an excellent example of the quality of work produced at RMK Marine.

David Tydeman, CEO Oyster Marine commented, “We have been very pleased with the services of RMK in the three-waypartnership of Oyster, RMK and Dubois in the build of the first Oyster 100 by Dubois.”

Every yacht built at RMK Marine in the last five years has been made a finalist of the World Superyacht Awards, judging them within the top five of their type in the year. In 2010 the beautiful 52m super yacht Nazenin V built by RMK Marine was honoured with the Judges Special Commendation prize at the Awards. The special award was a true reflection of RMK Marine’s capabilities and reaching the finalist stage was a great achievement as the Best Sailing Yacht 45m+ category is one of the most hotly contended categories and firmly establishes the yard as a superyacht builder to the highest standards in the industry.

RMK Marine stated, “RMK Marine is delighted that these 2 beautiful yachts built by our team at the yard have been nominated for awards following on from the success of Nazenin V and prior to that Caressa K”.

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, whatever the structural material; from aluminium such as used for Nazenin V to steel & aluminium for the RMK 4500 or composites as used for the Oyster yachts.

The selection as finalist is a great accolade and confirms the opinions expressed by the many visitors to RMK Marine, placing them as a world renowned Superyacht Builder.
