Vicem Yachts’ World Premiere- The New 100’ Cruiser

Under construction in Turkey, offering a price ratio that is hard to beat. Vicem Yachts
Vicem Yachts, Turkish builders of luxury classic motor yachts and mega-yachts, is quickly finishing the build of its newest yacht, the 100 Cruiser. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the yard, the new boat will be ready end of September 2011.

The new 100 Cruiser epitomizes the three hallmarks of every Vicem yacht: exuding a classic look of timeless design, 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 32,50m Vicem has undergone a sophisticated makeover with a number of new refinements, thanks to Vicem’s in-house design team. The boat is now under construction at Antalya yards.

Highlights of this yacht:
- 5 cabins for 10 guests
- 70 square metres flybridge
- Rina certification for a great charter appeal in Med and Caribbean
- 3 cabins crew area for 4 people
- Large family+friends ideal
- All mahogany cold molding construction
- In-house wood and steel craftmanship for hull, interiors and exteriors

Antonio Caviglia, Vicem Yacht European Sales Director from the new base in Porto Mirabello, La Spezia says 'The Vintage Cruise 100 will be an outstanding boat to family and friends, with interior and exterior spaces worthy of a 115 footer, including an amazingly large midship, full-beam master cabin, and two extremely spacious VIPs. The
giant 70 square meters flybridge is worthy of a +40 metres superyacht.

'Given all of these attributes, including a very comfortable crew area, as well as Rina Certification, Y Pleasure Class and Malta Commercial Yacht Code certifications, it will also have great charter appeal. Those on board will enjoy the utmost luxury with a quiet and smooth ride afforded only by a cold molded mahogany hull which promise only to enhance the overall exceptional experience.'

'The Vicem 100 Cruiser is an ideal yacht for an owner with a large family or a heck of a lot of friends,' says Dirk Boehmer, Vicem Yachts USA President. 'A yacht of this size can accommodate 3 couples with full VIP accommodations and an additional 4 guests in two separate staterooms, providing the discerning yachtsmen an experience that cannot be duplicated on a fiberglass vessel. With a draft of only 6’3' (1.90m), its cruising ability in the Caribbean, as well as in the Mediterranean, will provide an experience only our Flagship Vintage model can bestow on those aboard. We are very proud to introduce the Vicem 100 on our 20th Anniversary. It is a true testament to Vicem’s capabilities.'



The standard version comes with 5 cabins for 1 0 guests, an 'over sized' U-shape Gaggenau kitchen, king size bed in the full-beam master cabin and in the Vip cabin. Two further guest cabins propose a queen-size and a twin-bed double solution. The crew area is another sign of distinctiveness: 3 cabins (2 singles and one double) with private toilets, double access and laundry and private area.

The Vicem 1 00 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 2 x CAT C32 1 ,550HP Marine diesel engines, which allow the 100 Cruiser to reach cruising and maximum speeds of 1 7 and 21 knots, respectively. The fuel tanks have a capacity of 3,831 gal. 14,500 lt. while the water and holding tanks are 512 gal. – 1,940 lt. and 1,025 gal. – 3,800 lt., respectively.

The cold molded method
The building technique used to create the new 100 is the same used for all Vicem Vintage Line (classic/flybridge 52’ to 75’ – cruiser 78, 92, 100): 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.
