Vicem Yachts will introduce two models to the U.S. market with debuts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which runs Oct. 31 through Nov. 4.

The yachts are the top models of the two major lines in production — the Vulcan 46-meter (150 feet) and the 107-foot Cruiser. The Turkish builder of motoryachts and megayachts said the launch of the models is an important step in its strategic business expansion.

The Vulcan 46-meter is the result of Vicem’s new strategy to expand beyond mahogany construction with high-tech composite construction. The Vicem 107 Cruiser, which will also be presented for the first time to an American audience, is specially designed for long-distance cruising.

Alongside the two premieres, Vicem will display the traditional Windsor Craft models WC36 and WC40.
