History of Vicem Yachts
Founded by Sebahattin Hafizoglu, a businessman from Vicem, Turkey, the shipyard delivered its first yacht in 1991. Hafizoglu had a love for the Turkish “Gulets”, the traditional schooners of the Bosporous. Using their design as a foundation, he combined his concepts with state-of-the-art cold-molded wood and epoxy techniques to create a new line of classic custom yachts.
