Vicem Yachts, Turkish builders of luxury classic motor yachts and megayachts, heads into the 2010 European show season with a world debut on the horizon: the new Vicem 78 Cruiser, at the Cannes and Monaco boat shows this September.
The 78 Cruiser is the latest in Vicem’s celebrated series of classic, flybridge and cruiser motor yachts ranging from 50 – 100 feet. The new 78 Cruiser epitomizes the three hallmarks of every Vicem yacht: exuding a classic look of timeless elegance, exemplifying the Vicem ideals for unmatched craftsmanship, and a commitment to total customization. But this classic 25m Vicem has undergone a subtle yet sophisticated makeover with a number of new refinements, thanks to Vicem’s 14-person in house design team. The 2010 78 Cruiser is a classic…with a contemporary twist.
Many of the changes made aboard the 78 Cruiser appeal to more European tastes. The trademark interior high-gloss surfaces have given way to the understated beauty of satin-finish mahogany, accentuated by neutral-colored fabrics and the discerning use of leather appointments. Guests will also appreciate having more natural light stream in to social areas through markedly larger windows. A bigger swim platform and sunpad area adorn the aft deck and flybridge, respectively. And a hard top for the flybridge’s helm station comes standard.
These contemporary twists are complemented by an updated exterior, which projects the cleaner lines that were widely well-received with the introduction of the Vicem 54 IPS model earlier this year. Power arrangements are 2 x MAN V8 900HP Common Rail, which allow the 78 Cruiser to reach cruising and maximum speeds of 16 and 21 knots, respectively, and a range of 1,200 nm at 10 knots.
The 78 Cruiser can welcome aboard twelve guests and three crew. Sleeping accommodations include a full-beam master amidships, a VIP stateroom at bow, and two guest staterooms (double, and twin-berths) – all with ensuite bathrooms.
