The 100 Cruiser is the latest in Vicem’s celebrated series of Classic, Flybridge and Cruiser motor yachts ranging from 50 – 100 feet: the Vintage Line. The new 100 Cruiser epitomizes the three hallmarks of every Vicem yacht: exuding a classic look of timeless design, exemplifying the Vicem ideals for unmatched craftsmanship with a commitment to total customization, and the cold-molded method of construction. But this timeless classic design 32,50m Vicem has undergone a sophisticated makeover with a number of new refinements, thanks to Vicem’s in-house design team.

A mighty and powerful looking yacht with a “double crème shade” of unrivaled prestige like its “older sister”, the 78 Cruiser – one of the 2010 Vicem successes. The Yard’s strengths are again utilized in this boat: it’s the highly specialized workforce, its obsession with wood and stainless steel craftsmanship that comes close to perfection, the engineering resources necessary for the development of its V type hard chine semi-displacement hull. And last but not least this superyacht maintains the Yard’s DNA in custom or semi-custom production with a quality to price ratio that can be found only in Turkey.

The standard version comes with 5 cabins for 10 guests, an “over sized” U-shape Gaggenau kitchen, king size bed in the full-beam master cabin and in the Vip cabin. Two further guest cabins propose a queen-size and a twin-bed double solution. The crew area is another sign of distinctiveness: 3 cabins (2 singles and one double) with private toilets, double access and laundry and private area”.

The Vicem 1 00 contemporary twists are complemented by an updated exterior, and shows all its cruising character: a very high bow with a large and low cockpit to face rough seas for a pleasant and comfortable cruise in any weather. All on-board detail has been handcrafted to the highest standard and expertise: mahogany toe-rail and chromed brass or stainless steel hardware are just an example.

Power arrangements are 2 x CAT C32 1 ,550HP Marine diesel engines, which allow the 100 Cruiser to reach cruising and maximum speeds of 1 7 and 21 knots, respectively. The fuel tanks have a capacity of 3,831 gal. 14,500 lt. while the water and holding tanks are 512 gal. – 1,940 lt. and 1,025 gal. – 3,800 lt., respectively.

The cold molded method

The building technique used to create the new 100 is the same used for all Vicem Vintage Line (classic/flybridge 52’ to 75’ – cruiser 78, 92, 100): the cold molded process. A millenary, unique construction technique which embodies all the construction methods of the Turkish historical marine tradition; a modern procedure different from traditional boat building. Based on engineered wood construction, cold-molding uses laminated mahogany (coming from managed forests) and a specific formulated epoxy resin to create the hull, decks and principal superstructures. This results in a stronger and quieter vessel with a smoother ride, with natural insulation from humidity and noise.
