Project: Vicem 78 Cruiser

Vicem Yachts from Turkey heads into the fall of the 2010 European show season with a world debut on the horizon of the 78 Cruiser project, which I imagine is a further refinement of the 75. The new 78 Cruiser epitomizes the three hallmarks of every Vicem yacht: exuding a classic look of timeless elegance, exemplifying the ideals for craftsmanship, and a commitment to customization. But with this classic 25 metres Vicem has undergone a subtle yet sophisticated makeover with a number of new refinements, thanks to the fourteen person in house design team, the 78 Cruiser is a classic with a contemporary twist. Many of the changes made aboard the 78 Cruiser appeal to more European tastes. The trademark interior high-gloss surfaces have given way to the understated beauty of satin-finish mahogany, accentuated by neutral-colored fabrics and the discerning use of leather appointments. Guests will also appreciate having more natural light stream in social areas through markedly larger windows. A bigger swim platform and sunpad area adorn the aft deck and flybridge, respectively. A hard top covering the flybridge helm station area is also standard. These contemporary twists are complemented by an updated exterior, which projects cleaner lines. Power arrangements are twin MAN 900hp Common Rail, which allow the 78 Cruiser to reach cruising and maximum speeds of 16 and 21 knots, respectively, and a range of 1200nm at 10 knots. The 78 Cruiser can welcome aboard twelve guests and three crew. Sleeping accommodations include a full-beam master amidships, a VIP stateroom at bow, and two guest staterooms all with en suite bathrooms.
