The Vicem Series of motor yachts features the best examples of classic design afloat. Vicem’s plant and design team in Istanbul, Turkey merges the finest materials in the boating world with state-of-the-art composite construction techniques. Vicem has the flexibility to work closely with its customers in each stage of the building process, resulting in personalized, tailor-made boats.
Vicem Yachts (pronounced “VEE-cham”), based in Istanbul, Turkey, is a builder of classic style motor yachts, sport fishers and cruisers that range in size from 50 to 115 feet. Vicem Yachts USA is the company’s U.S. operations division, with sales and service offices located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Huntington, Long Island, New York; Newport, Rhode Island; and Newport Beach, California.
With the launch of the 92 Cruiser, the first model in Vicem’s Cruiser Series of long-range motor yachts ranging from 75 to 115 feet in length, Vicem offers a line of classic-style yachts with superb living accommodations and intrinsic extended cruising capabilities.
Inspired by the grand tradition of Gold Coast pleasure yachts, and based on the elegant style and design of Vicem’s signature Classic Series of 50- to 72-foot motor yachts, the 92 Cruiser features a raised pilothouse arrangement, larger superstructure, standard flybridge and oversized guest and crew accommodations well suited to longer excursions.
The flybridge comes with a fully equipped helm station with two Stidd double helm seats, hydraulic dining table for 15, large grill, wet bar, sun deck and Jacuzzi. The aft cockpit and foredeck house a large dining area with circular staircase leading up to the flybridge, a head, sunbathing and built-in seating and wide, covered side decks.
The main deck has an oversized salon with built-in seating, wet bar, full-length galley, elevated dining room that can seat eight and wheelhouse.
The full-beam master stateroom has a private stairway, dressing table, built-in couch and his/hers bathrooms with a common Jacuzzi tub. All guest accommodations feature en suite bathrooms with granite counter tops and lighted vanity mirrors. There are two VIP cabins equipped with king beds as well as a twin guest cabin. The crew quarters includes four bunk beds, galley, dining area and private head, and is located aft lower deck with a separate entrance for increased privacy.
The 92 Cruiser is powered by twin 900 hp MAN Diesels (at 2300 rpm) that can generate a maximum speed of 18 knots, and cruising range of 2,000 nm at 10 knots. A modified deep-V hull design, side power bow and stern thrusters help assure a smooth ride in choppy waters.
The Vicem 92 Cruiser retails at $5.5 million, fully equipped, all options included.
52 Classic Express
The new 52 Classic Express is the latest in Vicem’s Classic Series of yachts—exquisite and versatile pleasure craft hallmarked by elegant hull lines, luxurious yet casually inviting appointments and accommodations, and a timeless, traditional design that makes them real “head turners.”
This latest model of the 52 features a modified V-hull design and has been updated with several important features designed to enhance cruising enjoyment. The helm station now has a starboard helm door to facilitate access between the steering station and starboard walk-around deck, while the station floor has been raised for better visibility. A new powered sunroof offers the boat’s operator and guests the opportunity to bask in the sunlight in the comfort of the main salon.
The extension of the forward bunk cabin top represents a significant change to the yacht’s housing arrangement by providing more headroom in the forward part of the master stateroom. And the new power arrangement of twin 800 hp MAN engines, which is the largest power arrangement offered by Vicem for this entry-size model, boosts the cruising speed of its predecessor model from 25 to 30 knots, with a range at cruising speed of 300 nautical miles.
