The motoryacht Karia and the Oyster 100 Sarafin built by RMK Marine have been chosen on the final list of nominees for the extremely competitive World Superyacht Awards, a ceremony which will take place in Turkey, in Istanbul in May this year.
The 45m long Karia has been designed by Ron Holland and has been launched at the end of 2011. Its design was made especially to suit the owner’s preference for long distance voyaging and nothing but the best materials were used in the process of fabrication. Another factor that was requested was a low maintenance which has been considered a priority by the designer and builders. The hull offers a sleek, sea-friendly design, with low vibration and noise levels, as well as a unexpectedly spacious interior for a 45m yachts.
On the other hand, the Sarafin was completed last year at the RMK Marine yard and has received very favorable reviews from the press and has been given as an example of the quality of work produced by RMK Marine.
The CEO of the company, David Tydeman, was quoted as saying: “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.”
It’s worth noting that every yacht built at RMK Marine in the last five years has ended up as a finalist of the World Superyacht Awards which, as you might expect, is no mean feat in such a competitive market. The official declaration of RMK Marine at the nomination was: 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”.
