Vicem Yachts added a step to its strategic business expansion with the launch of the Vulcan 118-foot Trideck.
Since 2012 Vicem has been expanding beyond mahogany construction into high-tech composite construction with the delivery and launch of two new yachts in its Vulcan line — the Vulcan 46-meter (151-foot) and Vulcan 32-meter (105-foot).
A Frank Mulder design, the Vulcan 35 adds long-range capabilities for ocean voyages. The trideck provides space for 12 guests and is certified for the RINA Short Range Charter Class. It has a top speed of 20 knots; Art-Line Interiors has been chosen for the interior design. Tenders are hidden in the foredeck and there is additional garage storage at the transom.
“We enjoyed designing this yacht very much,” interior designers Frank Pieterse and Marilyn de Vaal said in a statement. “This yacht reflects the essence of yachting; a great climate, the warm sea, gentle reflections from the water through the windows and specially designed open outdoor spaces to give a sense of relaxation and welcoming. In order to create four suites, one VIP stateroom and two identical owner’s suites, we established an organic flow between the levels of the indoor and outdoor living spaces, thus generating a sense of space that belies the size of the yacht.
“In the rest of the public spaces we created a very light, dramatic look, with a repeating signature running through the interior, bringing the interior and exterior interaction into a continuous focus With details of the interior that were inspired by the woodworking and wooden boatbuilding heritage of Vicem Yachts, integrated with the contemporary art and architecture we are committed to, we aspired to generate a sense of holiday fun with a hint of formality, beautifully crafted with the finest material. This yacht is a real family yacht, designed for the whole family to celebrate their holiday.”
