Vicem Yachts has now taken an important step in its strategic development with the launch of the Vulcan 35-metre Trideck. Since 2012 Vicem has been expanding its horizons beyond mahogany and into high-tech composite construction, first with delivery of the Vulcan 46M in April and then the Vulcan 32M.

The Vulcan 35 Trideck now enhances the Vulcan series. World class, fast and lightweight the Vulcan Series yachts add long-range capabilities for oceanic voyages along with an outstandingly durable low-maintenance exterior. The Vicem 35 has a beautiful design and is just as fast as its older sister, the Vulcan 46M. 

When designing the 35 Trideck, Vicem wanted to incorporate spaces and volumes normally found in much larger tri-deck motoryachts.  A Frank Mulder design, this Trideck provides excellent quality accommodation for up to 12 guests and is certified for RINA Short Range Charter Class. The generous exterior spaces on all three decks are complemented by a beach-pad that drops down from the stern garage, allowing guests to fully relax and rest right by the sea.

With a top speed of 20 knots and a range of 1,600 nautical miles at 12 knots, or 950 at her cruising speed of 16 knots, this Vicem creation is a most versatile player in the superyacht segment. Art Line Design was chosen for the interiors, building on the very successful collaboration begun on the Vulcan 46. The 35 Trideck is a five-stateroom yacht, including a full-beam master suite and two full-beam VIP staterooms. There is a captain’s cabin on the main deck and two double crew cabins with a lounge and galley in the crew area. Tenders are hidden in the foredeck and there is additional garage storage at the transom.

Using the latest design and construction techniques, the interior volume has been increased compared with other yachts of similar size. Interiors can be completely tailored to client’s wishes and fully-integrated with exterior colors, styling and finishes thanks to Vicem's ‘total customization' philosophy and their superior construction techniques which allow finishing in dark colors and/or metallic painting. All Vulcan Line yachts are built in a state-of-the-art facility in Antalya, Turkey. Composite materials, applied with resin and sandwich techniques, are used to achieve the best possible strength-to-weight ratios.

Vicem’s plants are exceedingly clean without any of the unhealthy vapors that exist in other factories that use cheaper polyester resins, which are loaded with styrene. Even Vicem’s Classic and Cruiser lines utilize the more expensive and sophisticated epoxy resins in their construction. Integral tank construction was introduced with the new Vulcan series, which provides for more internal room for accommodation and the ability to carry more fuel for oceanic trips at lower speeds. Frank Mulder designed fast hulls for the Vulcan series with fine entry for rough sea conditions but still very fuel efficient at slow displacement speeds. 

RINA and/or MCA compliance and certifications are always available on Vicem’s Yachts but on the Vulcan series there are part of the project brief, which brings Vicem to a new level for offshore cruising and chartering.
