Project: Vicem 100 Cruiser

Vicem Yachts,  from Turkey is finishing the build of its latest project to be introduced end September 2011: the 100 Cruiser.  Latest Vicem the 100 Cruiser is part of the series of Classic, Flybridge and Cruiser motor yachts ranging from fifty to 100 feet: the Vintage Line. The new 100 Cruiser epitomizes the three hallmarks of every Vicem yacht: exuding classic timeless looks, exemplifying the Vicem ideals for unmatched craftsmanship with a commitment to total customization, and the cold molded method of construction. But this timeless classic design Vicem has undergone a sophisticated makeover with a number of new refinements, thanks to Vicem’s in-house design team.  A mighty and powerful looking yacht which shows a lot of unrivaled prestige coming from the smaller 78 Cruiser sister.  Vicem's strengths are again utilized in this boat: from the use if wood and stainless steel in construction to the engineering resources necessary for the development of its Vee type hard chine semi-displacement hull.  Last but not least this super yacht maintains the Yard's DNA in custom or semi-custom production with a quality to price ratio that can be found only in Turkey, which can include full RINA class certification; Y pleasure class, and Malta commercial code. The standard version comes with five cabins for ten guests, an “over sized” U-shape Gaggenau kitchen, king size bed in the full-beam master stateroom and in the VIP suite. Two further guest cabins propose a queen-size and a twin beds double solution. The crew area is another sign of distinctiveness: three cabins with private toilets, double access and laundry and private area.  The Vicem 100 Cruiser contemporary twists are complemented by an updated exterior, and shows all its cruising character: a very high bow with a large and low cockpit to face rough seas for a pleasant and comfortable cruise in any weather. All on-board detail has been handcrafted to the highest standard and expertise: mahogany toe-rail and chromed brass or stainless steel hardware are just an example. Power arrangements are twin CAT engines 1550HP which allow the 100 Cruiser to reach cruising and maximum speeds of 17 and 21 knots, respectively.
