Turkey’s largest warship
RMK Marine has the privilege of being the private shipyard that has initiated and successfully completed the project for the largest warship ever built in Turkey. The four Coast Guard Search and Rescue vessels completed and delivered in 2014 and 2015 perform with success the challenging duties ascribed to them in the open seas.
Continuing to introduce firsts
Designed and constructed by RMK Marine and delivered in 2014 and 2015, the asphalt carriers T.ESRA and T.AYLİN are the largest and most innovative carrier vessels of their kind. This project attracted such attention in the European market that sales agreements with two European customers were signed for two more asphalt carriers and one chemical carrier in 2015. In 2016, the most challenging year that the sector has faced in the last 35 years, the Company received orders for one chemical carrier from an existing client, and for one asphalt carrier and one chemical carrier from a domestic client. Construction of these ships began in 2016; they are planned for delivery in 2017, 2018 and first quarter 2019, respectively.
A global brand in superyachts Constructed by RMK Marine, Nazenin V, Karia and Sarafin all garnered “Special Jury Awards” at the World Superyacht Awards, the “Oscars“of the superyacht sector. The Company’s major business target for 2017 is to market the over 50-meter yachts specially designed in 2015 and 2016.
