Tuesday, 9 September 2008

Vicem Yachts – the noted Turkish builder of fine handcrafted, classic style motor yachts ranging in size from 15m to 35m – will be exhibiting for the first-time ever at three of Europe’s premier boating exhibitions this year: the Cannes International Boat Show, September 10 – 15 (France); the Monaco Yacht Show, September 24 – 27, Principality of Monaco; and the Barcelona International Boat Show, November 8 – 16 (Spain).

Show Highlights: 92 Cruiser Introduction & Plans for New Megayacht Unveiled
Vicem Yachts will be showcasing the first hull in its new Cruiser series of yachts – the 92 Cruiser – for its inaugural participation in these events. With the launch of this first model in the Cruiser series (which features yachts from 22m – 35m in length), Vicem offers a line of classic-style yachts with superb living accommodations and intrinsic long-range cruising capabilities. Based on the elegant style and design of Vicem’s signature Classic series of 15m – 22m motor yachts, the Cruiser series features a raised pilothouse arrangement, larger superstructure, standard flybridge and oversized guest and crew accommodations well suited to long-range excursions.

Furthermore, the company has chosen the 2008 Monaco Yacht Show as the venue to unveil the rendering and model of its first-ever 46m megayacht – Vicem’s newest yacht line – which is scheduled to launch in 2010. Vicem’s first endeavor in the megayacht arena is a highly credentialed project, featuring design plans from renowned Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder and the noted interior design firm of Art-Line Design.

“Our yachts appeal to discerning boaters who are looking for a truly exceptional yacht that sets them apart from the rest of the crowd,” said Sebahattin Hafizoğlu, Founder, President and CEO of Vicem Yachts. “We are extremely enthusiastic to showcase the Vicem yachting experience at these three world-class events, which reach out to a uniquely upscale and international clientele that would appreciate a Vicem yacht. We anticipate great success with our presence at these shows,“ he continued.
