    The 151-foot, trideck Le Caprice V is the first Vicem Vulcan 46 (www.vicemyacht.com), and it was the inaugural launch in the Turkish yard’s Vulcan line of semi­custom vessels longer than 100 feet. Like the 118- and 105-foot Vulcan models, the $27 million Vulcan 46 (named for its length in meters) was designed by the Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder, and it features a composite hull and superstructure. The yacht sleeps 12 guests in six cabins, including the full-beam master suite, which is outfitted with an office and a gym.
