Turkish builders of luxury classic motor yachts and mega-yachts, Vicem Yachts, opens 2011 with the new worldwide debut of its third line of yachts, the Vanguard Line. The new line of yachts added to the renowned motor yacht series’ from the Turkish shipyard is the composed of the 13.9 metre Vanguard 45 and 10 metre Vanguard 33, a perfect blend of timeless elegance, performing naval architecture and state-of-the-art production technology.
This new line has naval architecture by Michael Peters, while the exterior and interior design is by the in-house styling department. As result the Vanguard Line has a high performance hull with a beautiful elegance, a modern Vintage design so in vogue these days. Originally designed and built as a stand alone motor yacht, however it has been openly displayed as a versatile boat with attributes fitting perfectly into the role a luxurious superyacht tender.
Unlike most tenders, the Vanguard 45 has two cabins with twin berths, one forward and the other amidships and includes a galley. Special features include a retractable bathing platform in the stern, hideaway bimini tops over the cockpit and the foredeck solarium . Wood elements have been incorporated into the design that typify the classic Vicem style, with new colour palettes of grey, silver and blue on offer.
With an infused epoxy resin hull, the boat will be able to achieve a maximum of 34 knots thanks to twin Volvo IPS 600 engines, producing 435 hp. This solution reduces fuel consumption and emissions. However, for those who want something faster, Vicem offer the trademark of the Vanguard Line, twin MAN R6 engines, producing 800 hp and capable of reaching a maximum of 52 knots.
The first Vicem’s Vanguard Yacht will start her sea trials in Autumn 2011. [Vicem Yacht]
