Vicem Yachts has recently presented the new Vulcan Line of motor yachts, including 46m, 35m and 32m yachts. The first one, the Vulcan 46m, is a semi-displacement yacht which is lighter and faster than the industry standards.
The yacht was created in cooperation with Mulder Design and Art-Line Studios (interior layout). The 46M is currently under construction at a state-of-the-art facility in Antalya, Turkey. Composite materials, applied with resin infusion and sandwich techniques, were chosen to achieve the best possible strength-to-weight ratios.
Vulcan 46 will be powered by twin 3650 HP MTU engines and will be able to achieve a top speed of 25 knots and efficient ocean-crossing range at reduced speed.
The 46-meter superyacht has three decks plus a sundeck. Her signature open Atrium design provides 45 feet of unbroken natural lighting, from the very top of the Sundeck all the way down to the Lower Deck. The main deck’s Master Suite uses every inch of this yachts’ 30 foot beam, and includes a CEO’s office and a private gymnasium. A graceful wraparound entry way leads to an inviting Jacuzzi and an arcing full-width head. Far aft is the galley, a dining area for ten, and a relaxing lounge and a spacious upper lounge area.
