One of the nicest Vicem 58's to come to the brokerage market. Upgraded engines with the MAN service already completed. Two stateroom, two heads and huge galley with separate dinette. Always kept in pristine condition and has had upgrades throughout. Do not miss this one!
Vicem Yachts (pronounced "VEE-cham") builds classic style luxury motor yachts that are enjoyed by discerning yachting enthusiasts in many parts of the world. Crafted largely by hand at the company's shipyard in Istanbul, Turkey, Vicem models range from about 35' up to 150' in length. Currently there are more than 150 Vicems afloat in Europe and the USA. Since the company was founded more than two decades ago, the Vicem brand has become synonymous with impeccable craftsmanship, upmost attention to detail and quality, and widely respected cold-molded construction.
The Vicem Classic Series, introduced in the USA in 2001, includes models ranging from 34' to 72'. These strikingly handsome yachts are an established favorite among Vicem owners. Based on the achievement of the Classic Series, Vicem launched the Cruisers series in 2008. These larger yachts, now ranging from 65'--115' are also attracting a great deal of attention. We also build Sportfish models, ranging 54'-66'.
In 2008, Vicem started construction of its first composite 150' megayacht, which is a collaboration of world-renowned designers, Frank Mulder and Art-Line Design supported by a project management team with global experience in this area.
In recent years, Turkey has been am emerging powerhouse in the world of boat-building. Vicem Yachts stands as the best example of this emerging market, with many years of experience and a fine reputation as an elite builder of classic, elegant motoryachts.
NANI KAI is a spectacular example of one of Vicem's most popular models. The Vicem 58 offered several interior layouts and engine options. NANI KAI has the upgraded MAN V10 1100hp diesel inboards giving a top speed of 31 knots.
Once you step aboard you notice the magnificent woodwork that sets Vicem apart from her peers. Stepping from the teak hydraulic platform through a transom door you have spacious seating with Sunbrella cushions and varnished custom built mahogany table. Starboard side is a wet bar with granite top, electric BBQ and storage.
Entering through the double mahogany cockpit doors you at once notice the bright and airy interior with 360 degree views and hand crafted, mahogany joiner-work. Seating is provided by port and starboard settees with storage ottomans with mahogany serving tops in-between. Helm is starboard side with updated Garmin electronics and double helm seat. Opposite is a matching forward facing navigators seat overlooking the open galley.
Below to port is the open galley with granite counter-tops and a dinette forward. Starboard side is the twin stateroom with en-suite head forward.
Master stateroom is forward with center line berth, en-suite head to port and separate stall shower to starboard.

The cold-molded construction operation simply involves layers of thin veneers, oriented at different angles, glued over a mold. The glue in this case being a specially formulated epoxy resin. The marriage of engineered wood with formulated resins yields a hull that is lighter, stronger and more durable than a traditionally built boat. There are two basic reasons for this:
1- Firstly, laminating several layers of wood at 90-degree angles optimizes the unidirectional strength of this naturally flexible product, making it ideally suited to resist and absorb the complex forces applied to a hull in a seaway. Secondly,
2- Wood is a very strong material. However, this strength is unidirectional, meaning you can easily bend the wood in one direction but it would break if you try to bend it in the other direction. Binding together several layers of wood at 90-degree angles makes the hull much stronger in resisting the complex set of forces that effect the vessel during navigation.
Preventing the hull from absorbing more moisture than ideal is crucial in a wooden boat. Many woods are two or even three times stronger when dry than they are when saturated with moisture. The cold molding system aims to keep the wood dry. The epoxy soaks deep into the wood, sealing it off from moisture and oxygen. Keeping the water out means no swelling and no rotting. The glued joints are firmly bonded for long periods of time. Through this method, the hull skin is built upon a wood frame in four directional layers of African or South American Mahogany (Sapele) composite planking.
The first layer (-45 degrees) is fastened to the frames, keel, chine and sheer strake with galvanized nails and saturated with epoxy; the second layer (+45 degrees) and third layer (90 degrees) are fastened and bonded with epoxy and stainless steel staples, while the fourth layer (0 degrees) is fastened via epoxy and stainless steel strapped staples that are then removed, leaving behind a smooth hull with no visible markings. For larger, heavier yachts, an additional inner layer of edge-fastened strip planking mechanically locked together in a bead and cove fashion, with two outer layers of diagonally fastened mahogany planking, is required. Both methods have mahogany laminated internal structural members for the keel, chine, sheer and beams.
The final structural construction step requires coating the entire bilge area, engine room and exterior of the hull with 10oz E-glass cloth, epoxy resin and a polyurethane paint system. The exterior of the full is finished on top of the E-glass by multiple steps of long boarding, epoxy fairing compounds, epoxy primers and polyurethane paint to achieve a mirror-like finish. The result is a yacht that has all the advantages of a laminated wood hull, such as natural insulating properties for sound and humidity, and is also stronger than standard fiberglass and traditionally built wooden yachts.
