Turkey's Vicem Yachts is debuting its third line of yachts: the Vanguard Line.

Composed of the Vanguard 45 and the Vanguard 33, the new line of yachts was developed by designer Michael Peters.

"I've worked with open-class boats for almost all of my career. After a fantastic experience in the United States with two leaders in this market, I couldn't wait too long to bring Vicem into this segment," CEO Alberto Perrone Da Zara said in a statement.

"From the quality point of view Vicem has decided to invest heavily," he added. "Together with Michael Peters, we have decided to build hulls that no one else has: infused epoxy, just like the hulls used in the America's Cup. We turned to SP System and Hi Modulus-B3 Smart Pac for a production package that uses six different core types for each hull. Certainly this is a very challenging brief for our production and purchase departments, but quality here at Vicem has never been compromised."
