Vicem Yachts launch Vulcan 35 Trideck

Vicem Yachts adds an important step to its strategic business expansion with the launch of the VULCAN 35m/118’ Trideck. Since 2012 Vicem has been enlarging its horizons beyond mahogany construction into high-tech composite construction with the delivery and the launch of two new sleek, fast yachts for its Vulcan Line: VULCAN 46m and VULCAN 32m/105’.

Vulcan 35m – Trideck comes from the Vicem Vulcan series. World class, fast and light the Vulcan Series yachts add long range capabilities for ocean voyages together with an outstanding and durable low maintenance exterior. The Vicem 35m is a fantastic design and is just as fast and beautiful like his older sister, the Vulcan 46m. The yacht design is again a build featuring the best materials and absolutely no compromises.

VULCAN 35 M TRIDECK
When designing the 35m Trideck, Vicem wanted to incorporate spaces and volumes found in much larger tri-deck motor yachts.  A Frank Mulder design, this Tri-deck provides excellent quality of life on board for up to 12 guests and is certified for RINA Short Range Charter Class (RINA C ✠Hull ● MACH Ych Charter Short Range, EFP (Rina No:88038) Turkish). The generous exterior spaces on the three decks are complemented by a beach-pad that drops-down from the stern garage, allowing guests to fully enjoy their rest and relaxation by the sea. With a top speed of 20 knots and a range of 1,600 Nm @ 12 knots and 950@ 16 knots (cruising speed) this Vicem creation is a very versatile player for the super yacht segment. In addition, Art Line design has been the choice for the interiors – repeating the great successful collaboration as on the Vulcan 46 metres. Vulcan 35m trideck is a five stateroom yacht (6 cabins layout is also available), including a full-beam master suite and two full-beam VIP staterooms. There is a captain’s cabin on the main deck and two double crew cabins with a lounge and galley in the crew area. Tenders are hidden in the foredeck (to achieve a sleek exterior look) and there is additional garage storage at the transom.

ART-LINE INTERIORSDesigners Frank Pieterse and Marilyn de Vaal – refers: “We enjoyed designing this yacht very much. This yacht reflects the essence of yachting; a great climate, the warm sea, gentle reflections from the water through the windows and specially designed open outdoor spaces to give a sense of relaxation and welcoming. In order to create 4 suites, 1 VIP stateroom and two identical owners suites, we established an organic flow between the levels of the indoor and outdoor living spaces, thus generating a sense of space that belies the size of the yacht. In the rest of the public spaces we created a very light, dramatic look, with a repeating signature running through the interior bringing the interior and exterior interaction into a continuous focus With details of the interior that were inspired by the woodworking and wooden boatbuilding heritage of Vicem Yachts, integrated with the contemporary art and architecture we are committed to, we  aspired to generate a sense of holiday fun with a hint of formality, beautifully crafted with the finest material. This yacht is a real family yacht, designed for the whole family to celebrate their holiday”. www.artline-design.com

THE VULCAN SERIES FROM VICEM
With world class, fast and light yachts for charter or private use, the Vulcan Series adds long range capabilities for ocean voyages together with an outstanding and durable low maintenance exterior. Due to the latest design and construction techniques, interior volume has been increased when compared to many other yachts in the same size range. Interiors are tailored to client requests and can be fully integrated with exterior colors, styling and finishes due to Vicem’s “total customization” attitude and superior construction techniques which allow finishing in dark colors and/or metallic painting. The Vulcan Line yachts are built in a state-of-the-art facility in Antalya, Turkey. Composite materials, applied with resin and sandwich techniques, are chosen to achieve the best possible strength-to-weight ratios.

All Vicem plants are clean, pleasant factories without unhealthy vapors that exist in other yacht building factories that use cheaper polyester resins that are loaded with unhealthy styrene. Even the Vicem Classic and Cruiser lines utilize the more expensive and sophisticated epoxy resins in construction. Integral tank construction was also introduced with the new Vulcan series, which provides more internal room for accommodations and the ability to carry more fuel for oceangoing trips at lower speeds. Frank Mulder designed fast hulls for the Vicem Vulcan series with a fine entry for rough sea conditions yet still very fuel efficient at slow displacement speeds.

Vicem 46 metres Caprice V is on water

The impressive Vicem Vulcan 46 metres M/Y Caprice V is now on the later. This is has been the most challenging project for the world famous Turkish yard arriving to megayacht production for the first time since 2010. Vicem is enlarging its horizons beyond mahogany construction into high-tech composite construction with three new sleek, fast yachts, which includes the 46m/151’ , 35m/118’ and 32m/105’ for its Vulcan Line. V46 metres Caprice V was launched in July 2012 and V32 metres Bronko I was launched in November 2012. V35 metres will be launched soon during the first half of 2013.

In order to continue with speeds in the 20 plus knots range, Vicem decided on Cored Fiberglass construction for this series. The first step was joining forces with Dutch naval architect/designer Frank Mulder who has designed many well known, fast mega-yachts worldwide. To utilize the state of the art in fiberglass yacht construction, Mulder specified Core-Cell and Epoxy resin for the entire structure. Core-Cell has is the best choice of any core material for “off gassing” as it ensures a finished hull and superstructure that can be painted in any color. The hull and superstructure are also post-cured with large heat blankets after lamination which results in a fair and smooth appearance with any color.

“We want a reputation as a builder of light, beautiful and fast hulls” says Sebahattin Hafizoglu, Vicem Yachts Founder – Chairman of the Board of Directors. “Vicem is entering the super-yacht segment with serious ambitions and with no compromise/highest quality building materials and technologies that compare favorably to Northern Europe Shipyards.” The 46-metre super-yacht has involved Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder and noted interior design firm Art-Line Interiors. “On a boat this size, with such high expectations of performance, the choice of the ‘right’ naval architect was an important one. No one has the renowned expertise of Frank Mulder,” says Hafizoglu. Vicem is so pleased with Mulder’s work that we are also building a 32-metre and a 35-metre to his designs.”

VULCAN 46 metres M/YCAPRICE V
With this 46 meter yacht, Vicem decided to enter into the composite mega-yacht segment without making compromises.  With the assistance of outstanding design firms such as Frank Mulder for exterior and naval architecture, and Art Line for the interiors, Vicem set out to build a 46 meter semi-displacement yacht which is lighter and faster than the industry standard, achieving 25 knots as top speed, while maintaining high-efficiency cruising and long range capability of 4,000 Nm @ 12 knots, thus creating an extremely versatile ship. Art-Line Studio designed the Vulcan 46m interior, bringing a new definition to the word luxury. A 460-ton yacht, powered by twin 3,650 HP MTU engines, delivers efficient ocean-crossing range at reduced speed. Her three decks plus Sun-deck design provides outstanding elegance for the knowledgeable owner, and six cabins of thrilled guests. Her signature open atrium design provides 45 feet of unbroken natural lighting, from the very top of the Sun-deck all the way down to the Lower Deck. The main deck’s Master Suite uses every inch of this yachts’ 30 foot beam, and includes a CEO’s office and a private gym. A graceful wraparound entry way leads to an inviting Jacuzzi and an arcing full-width head. Farther aft is the galley, a dining area for ten, and a relaxing lounge and a spacious upper lounge area. Its impeccable construction and craftsmanship, thanks to Vicem’s internal team of 400 specialized craftsmen and the RINA/MCA Long Range classifications, make this mega yacht a very serious contender in today’s mega-yacht arena.

“The Vicem 46 Caprice V – refers Gary Smith Vicem of Americas –  is a fantastic design and is as fast as she is beautiful. The yacht design is a build with no compromises and only the best materials are used.  The first completed vessel is simply a work of art!  We are excited to represent Vicem’s entry into the mega-yacht world in the Americas too.  The Vulcan line is quickly becoming recognized as an industry leader and we are proud to be part of the team

Frank Mulder’s idea was to create a sleek and sinuous yacht line without compromising interior spaces, which on unit n°1 is designed by Vicem interior design team.  The raised pilot house configuration provides excellent main deck spaciousness and the owner can enjoy a standard master cabin forward on the main deck while the VIP guests have a full beam suite below decks.  The exterior sporty profile complements a dynamic boating lifestyle.  Impressively, the vessel can also achieve a range of 1,350 Nm while navigating at a fin-stabilized speed of 12 knots, all within RINA Short-Range Charter class certification. The Vicem Vulcan 32mis a raised pilothouse design uniquely featuring easy access to the foredeck both from the boat deck on the port side and the main deck on the starboard side, creating a full beam on-deck master stateroom. In addition to four guest staterooms (total of 5 cabins), the yacht has two crew cabins (with access from the galley), all with en-suite heads. The main tender is on the fly-bridge deck with room for two personal watercrafts in a transom garage.

Vicem has entered the super-yacht segment with serious ambitions and with no compromise to the highest quality building materials and technologies that can be compared to Northern European Shipyards” says Sebahattin Hafizoglu, Vicem Yachts Founder – Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Vicem Yachts at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show with US Avant-Premiere of the 80 Flybridge

Vicem Yachts, Turkish builders of luxury classic motor yachts and megayachts, arrives in Florida with the Vicem 80 Flybridge on display – first time in USA at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show this October 2012.

The 80FB is the latest in Vicem’s series of Classic, Flybridge and Cruiser motor yachts ranging from 50 to 107 feet: the Vintage Line. This yacht, with her classic look of timeless design, a living example of Vicem’s ideals for unmatched craftsmanship and their commitment to total customization and the cold molded method of construction, is the ultimate challenge for the yard and it’s members in-house yacht design team.

The 80FB is the ideal yacht for those looking for a new, sensational way of living at sea. Her main features are outstanding seaworthiness, with long range cruising and great handling as first priority in the design approach. In giving birth to this yacht, the Vicem design team has focused on creating a very comfortable “family cruising yacht”.

The flying-bridge area offers all the amenities for lovers of outdoor life. It has a sun deck, a large U-Settee table for six with storage under the seats, a wet-bar with refrigerator and additional storage lockers. The flying bridge is also provided with a very useful helm station, fully equipped with electronics, helm panel, indicators and controls. A bimini top in exterior fabric, with stainless steel supports and high end audio system with 4 speakers, completes the flying bridge.

The main deck exterior has a sun pad at the bow and another L-shaped mahogany table for six with storage under the seats. A swimming platform, in laminated teak with stainless steel fittings, adds two more areas for life on board or a berth for a launch. Details such as varnished mahogany boat-hooks and chromed hardware emphasize the legendary timeless elegance of Vicem’s Vintage yacht line.

Inside, space and light make the yacht an airy place where you can relax and enjoy the surroundings even in the hottest hours. The fabrics and materials chosen for decorating the interiors confirm all the tradition and experience that Vicem puts into its yachts. The feeling is that of a luxurious ambience with a special nautical flavor. This yacht has three cabins, all with en-suite bathrooms: one master and one VIP cabin, all with king size beds; one guest cabin, and last but not least, a bow crew cabin.

The spacious salon, a separate dining area, a pleasing optional king-sized bed guest cabin and an aft area can host up to twelve guests and two crew members. The helm station with a double seat has full access to all the controls: autopilot, exterior lighting, running lights, VHF radio, radar, GPS, plotter. The salon for total relax on board is enriched by the home theater system with a 26” LCD flat screen television.

For the interiors Vicem has chosen Anigre wood (Anigre is a tall tropical hardwood, found in West and East Africa in Guinea, Sierra Leone, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Angola and Zaire. This light wood belonging to mahogany family) and Wengé in order to achieve a “glistening” yacht. Laid Iroko flooring with a satin finish covers the main deck.

The very large master cabin offers all the comfort you need on board with an island king berth and an LED screen (as in all the other cabins). A wide-body saloon welcomes you inside; two lounge chairs with an ottoman and two large sofas can host up to eight guests who can enjoy the home entertainment system and its 32″ LED TV. The wheel-house is equipped with all the latest technology on the market. Autopilot, GPS and radar come as standard. The lower deck galley is provided with all possible appliances for a prestigious yacht: a cook-top with four burners, microwave, oven, refrigerator, freezer, and ice maker. Miele, Gagghenau and SubZero the brands used.

Performance for this over 24 meters yacht is not be underestimated. Her planing hull is built of cold-molded wood and epoxy, with a strip and cross planked mahogany hull skin: the 80FB has twin 1,550 HP Electronic MAN Common Rail engines that push the yacht up to a top speed of 30 knots, with a cruising speed of 24 knots. With Its’ long range cruiser character, the 75 FB enables guests to travel for 870 nm at 11,5 knots, with over 6,602 lt. of fuel and 1,302 lt. of water.

The cold-molded method The Vicem Vintage Line (Classic and Fly Bridge models, from 52’ to 80’; the Cruiser 78′, 92′ and 107’) is built using the cold-molded process. A millenary, unique construction technique which embodies all the construction methods of the Turkish historical marine tradition; a modern procedure different from traditional boat building. Based on engineered wood construction, cold-molding uses laminated mahogany (coming from managed forests) and a specific formulated epoxy resin to create the hull, decks and principal superstructures. This results in a stronger and quieter vessel with a smoother ride, with natural insulation from humidity and noise.
