Best of the Best 2013: Semicustom Yachts: Vicem Cruiser 107

  • Bailey S. Barnard

Vicem Yachts has been producing boats with hulls made from cold-molded mahogany for more than 20 years. In April of last year, the Turkish builder launched the inaugural Vicem Cruiser 107 (954.462.8828, www.vicem​yacht.com), its largest such model to date. The cold-molded V-hull and the yacht’s hefty 127-ton displacement enable the 107-foot vessel to slice through rough waters, offering a comfortable ride that gives guests the feeling of being aboard a much larger boat. The Turkish owner of the first Cruiser 107, which was dubbed Moni, chose a contemporary interior to counter the classic style of the exterior. With a full-beam master suite belowdecks in addition to two king cabins, one VIP cabin, and one twin cabin, Moni sleeps as many as 10 and has room for a crew of four. Standard features for the Cruiser 107, which is available in various configurations, include a 753-square-foot flybridge with a secondary helm station, a padded lounge, a seating-and-dining area, a bar, and a Jacuzzi. Prices for the yacht start at about $8 million.
