Vicem Yachts, new Vulcan Line embarked on a development program

INTRODUCING THE NEW VULCAN LINE FROM VICEM YACHTS WORLD CLASS QUALITY SECOND TO NONE
In 2010 Vicem Yachts embarked on a development program for the new Vulcan Line of mega-yachts over 100’/30 meters with the sole resources of internal capital financing.
Vicem is undertaking an important business expansion plan and is enlarging its horizons beyond mahogany construction into high-tech composite construction with three new sleek, fast yachts, including a 46m/151’ , 35m/118’ and 32m/105’ for its Vulcan Line. All three yachts will be launched in the 2012.
In order to continue with speeds in the 20 plus knots range and keep draft as shallow as possible for USA/Bahamas operation, Vicem decided on Cored Fiberglass construction for this series. The first step was joining forces with Dutch naval architect/designer Frank Mulder who has designed many well known fast mega-yachts worldwide. To utilize the state of the art in fiberglass yacht construction, Mulder specified Core-Cell and Epoxy resin for the entire structure. Core-Cell has the best characteristics of any core material for “off gassing”, insuring a finished hull and superstructure that can be painted in any color. The hull and superstructure are also post-cured with large heat blankets after lamination, ensuring a fair and smooth appearance with any color.
The Vulcan Line yachts are built in a state-of-the-art facility in Antalya, Turkey. Composite materials, applied with resin and sandwich techniques, are chosen to achieve the best possible strength-to-weight ratios.
All Vicem plants are clean, pleasant factories without unhealthy vapors that exist in other yacht building factories that use cheaper polyester resins that are loaded with unhealthy styrene. Even the Vicem Classic and Cruiser lines utilize the more expensive and sophisticated epoxy resins in construction.
Integral tank construction was also introduced with the new Vulcan series, which provides more internal room for accommodations and the ability to carry more fuel for oceangoing trips at lower speed. Frank Mulder designed fast hulls for this Vicem Vulcan series with a fine entry for rough sea conditions that are also very fuel efficient at slow displacement speeds. RINA certification was always available on Vicem Yachts. On the Vulcan series RINA and MCA are part of the project, which brings Vicem to a new level for offshore cruising and chartering.
“We want a reputation as a builder of light, beautiful and fast hulls” says Sebahattin Hafizoglu, Vicem Yachts Founder – Chairman of the Board of Directors. “Vicem is entering the super-yacht segment with serious ambitions and with no compromise/highest quality building materials and technologies that compare favorably to Northern Europe Shipyards.” The 46-metre super-yacht has involved Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder and noted interior design firm Art-Line Interiors.
“On a boat this size, with such high expectations of performance, the choice of the ‘right’ naval architect was an important one. Nobody has as rich an expertise as Frank Mulder does,” says Hafizoglu. Vicem are so pleased with Mulder’s work that we are also building a 32-metre and a 35-metre to his designs.” – “Frank Mulder, known for high-speed yacht hulls like Octopussy, Moonraker and The World Is Not Enough, designed the new Vicem Viulcan super-yacht outline, mandating the lightest and most advanced materials. The yachts will be launched in the 2012.
The yard has also strong collaborations with the most prestigious yacht  design “gurus” like  Wetzels Brown Partners and Ken Freivokh.
THE NEW VULCAN SERIES FROM VICEM
A world class, fast, light yacht for charter or private use, the Vulcan Series adds long range capabilities for ocean voyages together with an outstanding and durable low maintenance exterior. Due to the latest design and construction techniques, interior volume has been increased when compared to many other yachts in the same size range. Interiors are tailored to client requests and can be fully integrated with exterior colors, styling and finishes due to Vicem’s “total customization” attitude and superior construction techniques which allow finishing in dark colors and/or metallic painting.
VULCAN 46 M
With this 46 meter yacht, Vicem decided to enter into the composite mega-yacht segment without making compromises.  With the assistance of outstanding design firms such as Frank Mulder for exterior and naval architecture, and Art Line for the interiors, Vicem set out to build a 46 meter semi-displacement yacht which is lighter and faster than the industry standard, achieving 25 knots as top speed, while maintaining high-efficiency cruising and long range capability of 4,000 Nm @ 12 knots, thus creating an extremely versatile ship. Art-Line Studio designed the Vulcan 46m interior, bringing a new definition to the word luxury. A 460-ton yacht, powered by twin 3,650 HP MTU engines, delivers efficient ocean-crossing range at reduced speed. Her three decks plus Sun-deck design provides outstanding elegance for the knowledgeable owner, and six cabins of thrilled guests. Her signature open atrium design provides 45 feet of unbroken natural lighting, from the very top of the Sun-deck all the way down to the Lower Deck. The main deck’s Master Suite uses every inch of this yachts’ 30 foot beam, and includes a CEO’s office and a private gym. A graceful wraparound entry way leads to an inviting Jacuzzi and an arcing full-width head. Farther aft is the galley, a dining area for ten, and a relaxing lounge and a spacious upper lounge area. Its impeccable construction and craftsmanship, thanks to Vicem’s internal team of 400 specialized craftsmen and the RINA/MCA Long Range classifications, make this mega yacht a very serious contender in today’s mega-yacht arena.
