New Model: Vicem 46m Vulcan Tri-Deck

It was two years ago, when the Turkish Vicem announced the Vulcan line of three decked yachts, further expanding its range into larger eighty feet plus super sizes.  Designed by Frank Mulder outside, and built with Core Cell fiberglass this also represented a new step for the Turkish builder, who is more known for going into classic lines, and building in cold molding epoxy wood method.  Of the three presented projects Vicem started up by launching the biggest 46m Tri-Deck model put into the water in late Spring.  Interior designers Art-Line for Vicem 46m Vulcan Tri-Deck choose an open atrium layout for the main deck, with guest accommodation in six cabins.  The owners stateroom is located on the forward wide body part of the main deck.  A captains cabin is located on the top deck to port side of the pilot house.  Power is from twin 3650hp MTU with twin 3650hp engines which give a 25 knots max speed, 22 cruise. Range is 1000 nautical miles at 22 knots, or 4000 at a 12 knots maximum efficiency cruise.
