Like a fingerprint, no two Vicem yachts are the same, and the Turkish yard has put its print on 165 yachts since opening in 1991. The cold-molded-hull specialists launched the Vicem 107 Cruiser in late 2012.
Custom boatbuilding offers the owner the flexibility to achieve the goals they want in a yacht, and when the owner is also the owner of the shipyard, the project becomes even more personal. And after a year of cruising, Vicem made the right print on this yacht as the vessel has more than 1,000 hours on her engines.
The lower level is dedicated to guest cabins and crew quarters. A full displacement hull and careful planning allows this 106-foot yacht to accommodate eight guests in four cabins. The full-beam master (above) is amidships with plenty of headroom and an en suite head and walk-in closet. Forward and to port is a second stateroom with a queen-size bed. On the starboard size is a perfect cabin for children with a bunk above the washer and dryer. The VIP (below) is in the forepeak, with the bed facing forward.
The crew quarters after can sleep up to five crew in three cabins, taking full advantage of Pullman berths.
The main deck has a spacious salon that is open to its dining area (below). The salon is furnished with few but dominant pieces of furniture such as a low, gray wraparound sofa that takes up most of the space and a large 10-person dining table. The helm (above) and galley are forward and closed off, keeping the crew spaces separate.
The sundeck (below) has a fixed bimini top over the second helm, wet bar, and starboard-side dining table. A Jacuzzi sits amidships, and there’s room to store a tender for long voyages.
With the 107 Cruiser, Vicem has made its print on the Cruiser market. The yard’s careful craftsmanship can be seen in the details. The wood walls are made from single panels so the grain runs nearly seamlessly from port to starboard. It’s the details where the yard’s unique mark is most noticeable.
