Turkish yacht builder Vicem Yachts debuted the first two hulls in the new Vicem 50 Classic line.
In its standard configuration, the newly released fiberglass cruising yacht is fitted with heavy after-market equipment that includes gyro stabilization and a transom-mounted dinghy lift. The vessel is capable of top speeds exceeding 25 knots and is projected to keep a range of 477 nautical miles at a slower cruising speed of around 8.5 knots. A lighter-equipped vessel and/or a vessel with the more powerful optional engine package is expected push the top speeds to the predicted 28-knot or higher range. Hull number 2 in the line will serve as the model for the Vicem 50 Classic’s “standard” configuration.
The yard will also work with owners who want to customize the vessel to meet their individual cruising needs. They can choose to have tunnels added for the reduced draft.
The main deck includes a pair of straight settees to starboard and port in the main saloon, which doubles as the interior helm. Double-doors aft lead to a teak-decked cockpit and a large L-shape settee with table, faced by a built-in refrigerator, barbecue grill, and sink for prepping meals outdoors.
All cabinetry is crafted at Vicem by artisans. Cabinet materials and countertop choices in the galley and throughout can be selected by customers. On the accommodations level, the Vicem 50 Classic features a standard two-stateroom configuration, two en-suite heads and a galley. The second head offers jack-and-jill entry either from the corridor or from within the twin guest cabin. The master cabin features a queen-size island berth, dual hanging lockers, and a large en-suite head with separate shower.
Vicem has taken orders for the first four hulls in the new line, while a fifth hull is expected to begin construction soon.
