OVERVIEW
When entering the main salon from the large cockpit, you immediately recognize the high level of quality. There is fine mahogany woodwork with high gloss finish throughout the boat and the attention to detail is striking! The volume of space is equal to that of a much larger boat. The main salons large windows allow great views and an abundance of natural light. Along the port side of the salon there is a full bank of custom cabinetry with drawers, a fold out table, shelving for china and glassware and entertainment systems. To starboard there is a settee with a cockpit table aft. The lower helm is forward, starboard side with a bench seat for two.

The wrap around windshield forward of the helm area also serves as the skylight for the galley, which is just a few steps down on the port side. The galley is the centerpiece of the boat and would rival that of any mega yacht! Features include marble counter-tops, high end appliances and an island workstation with matching marble counter. There is also a washer and dryer built-in and smartly hidden away behind the cabinetry.

Opposite the galley, starboard side, is a guest stateroom with twin berths, fore and aft, en-suite head, flat screen TV, storage and hanging lockers. Forward along the starboard side there is a second guest "bunk room" which can sleep up two four. The twin berths are arranged in an L-shaped fashion with Pullman berths above. Each berth has it's own flat-screen TV with privacy headsets. There is an en-suite head with stall shower.

The spacious master stateroom is forward and has a queen size island berth, a large vanity table with mirrored cabinetry, flat screen TV, en-suite head with large stall shower and over-sized hanging lockers and drawer storage.

A crew cabin with double berth and private head is located aft of the walk in engine room.

HULL & DECK
Vicem Yachts, the noted Turkish builder of fine handcrafted classic style motor yachts are well known for their high level of quality, joinery and elegance. They utilize only the finest materials and state of the art composite construction techniques. To set the groundwork for a finely constructed boat, each Vicem hull is hand laid and cold molded. The exterior of the hull is covered with a layer of E-glass woven cloth with epoxy and finished with Awlgrip paint. The cockpit sole and decks are covered with Teak decking. 
This construction method, preferred by some of the world's leading builders, has been perfected over the last thirty years through the research of West System epoxy. Cold molding produces an incredibly strong structure, in fact, Vicem's mahogany-epoxy hulls have among the highest strength-to-weight ratio in the industry. An added benefit is the quiet solid feeling of this hull moving through the water unlike the highly resonant noise of a foam core composite.
