The Vicem Vulcan 46m Nears Completion

The Turkish shipyard Vicem have just sold their their first Vulcan 46m (151ft) from the Vulcan series, that's nearing completion at the yard. The Yacht was sold to a British Business man at a list price of $27,000,000 and is on schedule to hit the water at the end of June 2012.

With the construction of the Vulcan 46m, Vicem have entered into the composite Megayacht market with the assistance of top design firm Frank Mulder who designed the fast exterior lines. Vicem wanted to set out to build a 46m semi displacement which is lighter and faster than the industry standard. From achieving this she will be able to reach a top speed of 26kts, while maintaining high efficiency cruising and a range of 4,000nm at a speed of 12kts.

She has three decks plus the sun deck where owner and guests can enjoy the sun. Her main feature is the open atrium design that provides 45 feet of unbroken natural lighting, from the very top of the sun deck all the way down to the lower deck. She will be a very open yacht with natural light beaming throughout the inside emphasizing her fantastic interior which has been designed by the famous studio Art-Line.

The very impressive owners suite forward on the main deck incorporates the full 30ft beam of the yacht and also includes a wrap around entry, office and private gym. The rest of the guest cabins are on the lower deck and include a full beam VIP cabin, 2 double and 2 twin cabins, giving a total accommodation for up to 12 guests as well as the owners.

Her fast lines and sharp two tone paint scheme will certainly create a lot of interest within the yachting industry and the general public when she is launched next month.
