Vicem Building New Cold-Molded 93

Vicem, the high-end Turkish builder, just announced that it’s building an all-new, cold-molded Vicem 93, the start of a new series, for an Australian couple.

The new Vicem, scheduled for delivery next spring, will have four staterooms on the accommodations deck, and quarters for three crew aft. With a semi-displacement hull, the 93 will cruise at 14 knots and to out at 18 knots.

The 93 is a bit of a departure for Vicem, which has concentrated in the 46- to 65-foot range in the past few years. Signifying the move to larger yachts, it delivered hull number one of its 82 series just in January, and now it is making the jump to the 93.

There certainly has been a trend to larger yachts recently, but the 93 is the result of an Australian couple contacting the Vicem dealer there directly after they had seen a Vicem 107 superyacht. They knew what they wanted. And Vicem’s cold-molded process means it can customize a new yacht to fit each owner’s own plans.

The 93 is being built in Istanbul, and it’s not without its luxurious touches. A large Jacuzzi, for example, is up on the flybridge, along with an outdoor galley, dining table, various lounging areas and the upper helm, all protected by a hardtop overhead. The boat deck aft can hold a 16-foot tender.

The yacht has a 21’ 6” beam, which creates plenty of space inside and out for cruising and relaxing comfort. The aft deck,  protected by the overhang from the boat deck, features a centered al fresco dining table and a large settee aft at the transom. Stairs lead up to the flybridge; other interior stairs from the salon also go up to the flybridge, a safe and comfortable option in rough seas or bad weather.

The salon has high ceilings and large windows and various social and seating areas throughout. It’s all on the same level as the aft deck, so moving around is easy.

Below, the master stateroom is full-beam amidships, the VIP cabin is forward, with a larger guest cabin on the port side and a smaller one, with two berths, to starboard. The crew quarters are all the way aft. Read more:
