Vicem Yachts, Turkish builders of luxury motor yachts, opens 2011 with the new worldwide debut of its third line of yachts: the Vanguard Line. Composed of the Vanguard 45 and the Vanguard 33, the new Vanguard Line is a perfect blend of timeless elegance, performing naval architecture and state of the art production technology.
The exterior and the interior of this new line were done by Vicem's in-house design department, while the hull and naval architecture were developed by yacht designer Michael Peters.
This clean lined design combines wood elements that illustrate the classic Vicem style with new color palettes of grey, silver and blue. It also blends style and speed with very livable interiors, offering two cabins with twin berths, one forward and the other amidships, a comfortable galley and head with separate shower.
Special features of this Vicem Line are a stern mounted automatic swim platform that closes and becomes an integral part of the hull, a sun bathing area at the bow with a bimini-top, living space aboard for up to ten guests and two large cabins with king size beds, along with the detailed attention of the cockpit. All of these elements make this Vicem Line a comfortable, high performance, luxurious line which should perfectly tailor to its customers’ desires.
There are several options for engine choices; firstly, for lovers of ease and comfort, Vicem offers twin Volvo IPS 600 engines with 34 knots of top speed. This option means easier docking, lower fuel consumption and 30% lower emissions compared to traditional propulsion. Alternatively, one can opt for high performance, with twin 800HP MAN R6 engines option coupled with ASD - Arneson Surface Drive transmissions and reach a top speed of over 50 knots. This is also thanks to a 20° degrees dead-rise for increased seaworthiness.
Vicem Yachts CEO Alberto Perrone Da Zara presented another new development for the Turkish yard: “We studied competitors worldwide and discovered a few gaps that the yard could fill: improved seaworthiness, a more enjoyable boat in heavier seas, better living space below-decks, zero compromise construction quality and a higher cost factor. Together with Michael Peters we have decided to build hulls that no one else has: infused epoxy. We turned to SP System and SP-High Modulus – B3 Smart Pac for a production package that uses six different core types for each hull. Certainly, this is a very challenging brief for our production and purchase departments, but quality here at Vicem has never been compromised.”
Vanguard 45 will be ready for sea trials fall 2011
