Vicem superyachts Vulcan 46 and Moni to make US debuts at Fort Lauderdale show
Both yachts are the largest models yet built by the Turkish builder in their respective lines.
Launched in June 2012, the 46m was the first yacht in the Vulcan line which now also includes 32m and 35m models. The 46m was built in composite, with exterior design and naval architecture by Frank Mulder, founder of Mulder Design. The free-flowing layout by Art-Line eschews narrow corridors and unnecessary angles, although areas can be screened off to increase privacy.
The master suite is an extraordinary space with the bed at the centre of a carpeted island, and a path sweeping around the room to the suite’s various amenities. Cream tones and acres of high-gloss rosewood create a glamorous interior theme, matched by chic and spacious deck areas. The Vulcan 46m is powered by twin 2,710kW MTU engines, offering a cruising speed of 20 knots, a top speed of 27 knots and a range of 4,000nm at 12 knots. She sleeps 12 guests and 8 crew.
Moni, which will make her first Atlantic crossing for this US debut, was launched in March 2012. Moni’s Vintage 107 design was penned by the yard’s in-house team and she is big sister to the Vintage 78 Cruiser, which hit the water in 2010.
Her deep V semi-displacement hull is built in cold moulded mahogany and epoxy, offering efficient performance, while her light weight combined with twin 1,140kW Caterpillar C-32 engines give a top speed of 21 knots and a cruising speed of 17 knots. The interior, also penned by the Vicem design team, accommodates 10 guests in five cabins in a standard version, including a full-beam master suite and two VIP cabins.
