Vicem Yachts, the noted Turkish builder of fine handcrafted, classic style motor yachts, has announced that the 2009 Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show will mark the U.S. debut of two new models. Vicem will be unveiling the 92 Cruiser, which is the first hull in Vicem’s Cruiser series, and the 72 Classic Flybridge, representing the latest model in the noted Classic Series.
92 Cruiser: Beauty Complemented by Brawn
With the launch of this first model in the Cruiser Series (which features yachts from 75 – 115 feet in length), Vicem offers a line of classic-style yachts with superb living accommodations and intrinsic long-range 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 – 72 feet motor yachts, the 92 Cruiser features a raised pilothouse arrangement, larger superstructure, standard flybridge and oversized guest and crew accommodations well suited to long-range excursions.
Beauty is complemented by brawn on the 92 Cruiser, which has twin 900 hp MAN Diesels (@ 2300 rpm) to generate a maximum speed of 18 knots, a cruising speed of 13 knots, and cruising range of 2,000 nm at 10 knots. A modified deep-V hull design and side power bow and stern thrusters help assure a smooth ride in choppy waters.
Classic New Flagship: 72 Classic Flybridge
The 2009 72 FB Classic is the new flagship in Vicem’s heralded Classic Series of stylish luxury motor yachts that embody a timeless sophistication and flair for elegant boating, yet are relaxed and comfortable enough to truly enjoy.
The all-new 72 FB builds upon Vicem’s distinguished reputation for delivering unmatched style and craftsmanship, which is evident in her striking hull lines and exquisite details. New features aboard the 2009 72 FB include a helm door and large windows in the master suite and the galley.
The flybridge level, which is accessible via built-in circular staircase at aft, is a great place to gather. Not only does it feature a helm station, but the built-in seating and BBQ grill make for a wonderful al-fresco entertainment experience. The main level is dedicated to the salon (with wet bar and entertainment system) and wheelhouse.
All staterooms and the crew cabin feature ensuite heads. If you option for a four-stateroom arrangement, the dinette area would be replaced with a bunk cabin.
And Vicem’s unique hand-laid, cold molded, composite hull has been paired with twin 1550 hp MAN diesels to deliver a smooth ride and exhilarating speeds (28 knots max.; 24 knots cruising).
Come see these latest Vicem luxury yachts along side the Vicem 63 Sportfish and 52 Classic Express at the 2009 Yacht & Brokerage Show, Ramp 16. Located in the heart of the show and at the very front of Ramp 16, these yachts will be highly visible right from Collins Avenue at the 4600 Block, just north of the Eden Roc Resort.
