Seven Seas

RMK Seven Seas – pocket-sized explorer

When a client with vision unites a shipyard with strong build capability and a design studio with epic expedition heritage, the result is RMK 120 – Seven Seas. A pocket-sized explorer boat imagined on a grand scale. As the sixth collaboration between Dutch firm Vripack and Turkish shipyard RMK Marine, the steel-hulled yacht speaks to the robust legacy of both brands. Intended for long-range, super-efficient cruising, the RMK Seven Seas packs a mighty punch from its 120-foot platform.


Designed for an experienced yachtsman with world cruising in mind, the brief was clear; to capture expedition capability in a masculine trawler-style yacht refined by a feminine, family-focused design.




"The owners wanted their next boat to be big, but not so big that it couldn’t access beautiful ports and bays. They were keen to design a pocket explorer. For them, that meant everything that you typically have in a 50m 500 GT boat, including proper tender carrying capacity when cruising in different regions."


A 55sqm dedicated tender deck has the capacity to carry two 7.5m tenders. A significant lazarette provides further storage for water toys and RIBs. Aft of the bridge is a large exterior deck with an overhang to provide shelter in harsh climates. And a high bow, expert naval architecture, and tough seaworthiness are central to the design. True to form, Vripack’s considered exterior lines tick all the boxes without sacrificing interior space.


A private top deck with Jacuzzi, bar, and seating area affords views of the shifting vistas. The main deck aft offers al fresco dining with aft-facing seating ideal for when underway. High windows create a light-filled interior, even in regions where daylight is limited. By fashioning the luxuries of a superyacht into the DNA of a ship, RMK 120 delivers low operation costs, more accessibility in remote areas, and all with a layout driven by life on board.

“If you look at the exterior lines and proportions, the rhythms and angles, these are typical of the Vripack heritage explorer,” says Bouwhuis.It gives a quiet, harmonious-looking profile that will be everlasting, without compromising on the internal layout. Like a Jaguar SUV, this boat will become an evergreen.”



“The explorers we build with the Vripack design have great stories to tell and have given rise to a cluster of happy and satisfied customers. Now, with this new order, we have the opportunity to recreate this line of vessels for RMK Marine".
