I love everything about boating and water.
Living in the midwest we are limited to 6 or 7 month summers and boating is on lakes and rivers. For years we boated with our friends and our kids have great memories of being on the water. Our boat was a modest 24′ Cobalt which was great for the local lakes. When we visited the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri we were amazed and impressed by the yachts and boats over 40′ but none like the 164′ RMK 5000 Explorer Mega Yacht!
I first read about this in the Robb Report and fell in love right away!
Robb Report article excerpt:
The Turkish yacht builder RMK Marine and the acclaimed Italian design firm Hot Labs Yacht & Design have unveiled details on the much-anticipated RMK 5000 Explorer concept.
The RMK 5000 Explorer is designed to perform like a rugged explorer vessel, the 164-foot megayacht will be equipped with an ice-class hull and will have a gross weight below 500 tons, with either diesel or electric propulsion packages providing long-range cruising. The vessel will be available in two variations: the Leisure and the Luxury Explorer, both of which offer fully customizable interiors, an aft beach club, and space for 11 passengers in four cabins, each with an en suite bathroom.
The RMK 5000 Explorer's aft deck features a helipad and room to stow a 30-foot tender, a submarine, a hovercraft, personal watercraft, and diving equipment. The Leisure replaces the helipad with a 20-foot-long pool, in addition to offering a Jacuzzi on the sundeck. In this layout, a 30-foot tender can be stowed in the lazarette and launched with a mechanical crane.
RMK and Hot Labs revealed complete details on the concept at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show.

I want one!
Every time we are near the ocean we find a boat or cruise we can go on just to be on the water!
My goal is to get a big boat on the ocean and go island hoping in the caribbean! What a better way to do it but a 164 foot megayacht!
Anyone ready for a boat ride? Who's coming along?
