WORLD SUPERYACHT AWARDS FINALIST KARIA TO MAKE HER DEBUT IN ISTANBUL

Karia, the latest Motor Yacht design concept from Ron Holland Design, MCA 500GT has been granted the distinct honour of being ed as a finalist in her category for the World Superyacht Awards, the prize giving for which will be held in the spectacular setting of the Ciragem Palace, Istanbul on 5 May 2012. 

The 45m Karia is no ordinary motor yacht.

Built to very high specifications by RMK MARINE , Karia immediately conveys the assiduous attention to detail, innovative thinking and quality of execution that are the hallmarks of the Ron Holland Design team.

Karia was conceived and designed as a luxurious yet highly economical and seaworthy yacht for long range cruising in comfort and style. In pursuit of these objectives, the RHD team went to great lengths to draw the most efficient hull lines and to devote detailed attention to the fairing and streamlining of every underwater appendage. This is a yacht with a fine mastery of fluid dynamics and, as a result, an economical cruising range. 

Streamlining does not just apply below the waterline. RHD and Design Unlimited (who created the interior styling) have achieved fluency and access between the amenity spaces and private areas of the extensive accommodation for owners and guests. The same care has been taken to optimise operational ergonomics for the crew, while minimising crew intrusion on owner and guest privacy. 

There is no doubt that Karia looks special – in part thanks to her fine exterior lines, but also because of exceptional standards of build, specification and finish, detailed inside and out.

A TOTAL OF FIVE RECOGNITIONS FOR KARIA IN THE WORLD SUPERYACHT AWARDS AND THE SHOWBOATS DESIGN AWARDS  

Karia has also been ed as a finalist for the ShowBoats Design Awards whose award ceremony will be held during ‘The Rendezvous in Monaco’ on the 22nd June. Here, she is a finalist in four Award categories: Exterior Design (Ron Holland Design), Interior Design (Ron Holland Design), Interior Design Styling (Design Unlimited), Recreational Space for Guest Use (Ron Holland Design & Design Unlimited).

Karia will be present in Istanbul at the time of the World Superyacht Awards, ready to meet a prospective owner who will truly appreciate her exceptional qualities.
