Born with a Wooden Heart

  • By George Sass Jr.
  • Updated: October 28, 2011

Vicem’s captain waits patiently, giving deliberate commands with a soft-spoken, direct delivery. The boating traffic around us in the old port of Cannes is abuzz and slightly chaotic, yet the mood on board the new Vicem 75 is serene. We maneuver the yacht around in a continuous rotation trying to free ourselves from the eager tentacles cast by the various ground tackle that’s grabbed our anchor. There is no yelling or frantic movement by the captain. He simply shrugs his shoulders and grins, possessing an unflappable confidence in his ability and the craft beneath his bare feet.

After 30 minutes we’re free and we head out to the open Mediterranean for an early-evening sea trial. It seems wildly appropriate that I’m testing the latest Vicem in the south of France — a region that constantly overwhelms the senses. This yacht’s classically inspired design complements the backdrop and golden light. Only Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly sipping champagne on the bow as their head scarves blow in the evening breeze are missing as we point our bow toward Monaco.

I take the wheel and palm the purposefully designed electronic engine controls, pushing the throttles forward. I’m taken aback by what I don’t hear. There’s no protest from below, no whining of turbos kicking in (even in the salon), no excessive vibration — nothing but the sound of rushing water and casual conversation from the 12 people on board.

The wind climbs to 15 knots and the waves are stirred by the heavy boat traffic. Accelerating to a top speed of 30 knots, I head into confused seas, and yet again, I smile as nothing happens. No pounding, no spray, no loud noises, nothing but a soft easy landing like cotton falling onto carpet. At 1900 rpm, the 1,550 hp MAN V-12 diesels provide a cruising speed of 23 knots, representing about an 80 percent load. If longer range is desired, take her all the way back to 1200 rpm and 11.5 knots to achieve an approximate 870-mile range. Throughout the speed curve the 75 is sure-footed and solid. I didn’t expect her to be such a fun boat to drive, and there is also the immense satisfaction of knowing that the ride under your feet is predictable and true. I’m starting to understand the captain’s calm demeanor.

While maneuvering over the wake of a passing ferry, I’m reminded of a byproduct of cold-molded construction — natural insulation and a great ride. It’s no wonder that many of the top custom sport-fish builders in south Florida and North Carolina prefer cold-molded construction for designs that are intended to perform in a variety of conditions at high speeds. This building method also results in less tooling and therefore more development flexibility. Vicem uses multiple skins of laminated mahogany (from managed forests) to create the hull. The practice of laying up the wood in a multidirectional grid adds to the strength and integrity of the hull. And Vicem, based in Turkey, benefits from generations of native boatbuilders who have perfected their craft for centuries. The end result is a yacht with an easy to maintain, strong finish and noteworthy performance.

Vicem Yachts was founded in 1991, and the Vintage line, which includes the 75, now goes up to 100 feet. In 2012, the boating public will see the yard’s entry into the megayacht market with the launch of a 46-meter, a 35-meter trideck and a 32-meter raised pilothouse, all built with composites.

I tested my first Vicem nearly 10 years ago and was impressed by the flawless, old-world mahogany joinery, reminiscent of a London gentlemen’s club. So I was surprised when I stepped aboard the 75 — which features the same traditional exterior styling as all Vicems in the Vintage line — to find a thoroughly contemporary interior fit and finish. The light anigre wood is complemented by wenge accents and trim along with a dark iroko sole. The combination works, and instead of jarring the senses, the interior is soothing, providing a canvas that will not compete with the scenery beyond the salon windows.

The 75 features a lower helm station that benefits from a good line of sight forward. I would move the opening transom door to the port side to allow the helmsman to naturally look over his left shoulder and see the platform through the opened door while backing down. The helm is finished in hand-stitched leather, and the design places the engine’s analog gauges in the line of sight of the helmsman. An opening door at the helm brings in air and allows easy access to the deck. This is the station I would choose while docking, an activity aided by Side-Power bow and stern thrusters.

Two straight settees are abaft the helm. I called up all my reserve willpower in order to avoid lying down here for a snooze while offshore with the double doors open to the cockpit. A table in the salon will accommodate smaller meals, and a huge L-shape settee in the cockpit is well suited for large family gatherings.

Down four steps from the salon is the spacious galley with an upright Sub-Zero refrigerator and two drawer-style refrigerator/freezers beneath. Our test boat was equipped with high-end appliances, including a dishwasher, oven, cooktop, microwave and ice maker. There is plenty of stowage to provision for an extended cruise off the beaten path.

The master is to starboard and includes an athwartships king island berth, plenty of light streaming through the hull window and ports, two hanging lockers and shelves. I would find it difficult to leave this cabin in the morning, so it’s a good thing the large window above the headboard will show me what I’m missing outside.

vicem yachts instagram

Two twin-berth staterooms are forward and share a head, while the large third guest stateroom is in the bow with an en suite head, island berth, overhead hatch and two hanging lockers. For owners looking to host the occasional crew, accommodations are aft and below the cockpit.

Exploring the staterooms at cruising speed with a sound meter, the benefit of cold-molded construction once again reveals itself. The decibels never register more than 71. Considering the level of normal conversation is 64, this is impressive.

The reduction in boat speed as we return to Cannes lures me back to the flybridge. Since a tender will be carried on the swim platform, the space here is dedicated to relaxing and entertaining. The U-shape settee and table flank the bar unit with grill. I like the clever extension on the double helm seat to port, which folds out to allow two guests to lie back and enjoy the sights. A stainless rail surrounds the venturi. If the venturi height were reduced by half an inch, the rail could also serve as a perfectly placed handhold for anyone standing around the helm.

After we Med-moor, with the same ease in which we departed, I must force myself to leave the 75. I don’t want to be that guest who doesn’t get the message that the party is over. Yet walking around the wide teak decks, and looking at the varnished cap rail and blue hull set against old Cannes, I want to savor as much of the moment as I can. It’s been said before: There is something about a wooden boat, even one layered in epoxy, that soothes the soul and captures the heart. And isn’t that what yachting is all about?

Vicem Yachts has already won over traditional yachtsmen with its elegant, cold-molded mahogany cruisers . Now it’s hoping to reel in anglers, too.

Created in partnership with Turkish designer Murat Iyriboz and U.S. outfit DLBA, the Tuna Masters can be used for serious angling and casual family outings. The two models showcase molded fiberglass exteriors, the same sleek hull, and an impressive beam of just over 12 feet. Both also deliver “exciting performance,” according to Vicem.

Vicem Tuna Masters 37 Express

The interior is the main difference between the two: The 37 CC showcases a walkaround center console, whereas the 37 Express has more of a cruiser-style cockpit with a wraparound windscreen under the hardtop. The Express is also outfitted with a full lower cabin.

The helm is positioned front and center of the enclosed cockpit, with wraparound guest seating nestled behind. To the aft lies a triple-seater bench, two fighting chairs, a built-in bait well, and multiple pole holders. The live bait tank has an impressive capacity of 45 gallons, too.

The lower deck features a galley, a head, a rod locker, and a cabin that can be tailored to the owner. (You can opt for twin berths in a V formation or a full double V-berth if you want more space.) The fit and finish are quintessentially Vicem, with teak decking and detailed joinery throughout.

“The lower accommodation area is both versatile and exceptionally comfortable, notably featuring an impressive two-meter headroom without compromising the yacht’s sleek profile,” the team adds. “The 37 Express perfectly complements the CC version and underscores our commitment to enthusiasts who prioritize both fishing and cruising.”

The first Vicem Tuna Masters 37 Express is currently in Puerto Rico.

Heavily armed security boats patrol winding Milwaukee River during GOP convention

MILWAUKEE – Instead of kayakers and tour boats, the summertime scene on the Milwaukee River has taken on a solemn tone this week during the Republican National Convention : Around-the-clock patrol boats, some with heavily armed officers.

Security planners have had to contend with the winding waterways through Milwaukee near the Fiserv Center RNC convention site, along with securing downtown streets. Roughly half a dozen police departments, along with state and federal agencies, have boats patrolling the river 24-hours-a-day until the convention ends this week.

“They’re committed to working those long shifts, throughout the days and nights,” U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Joe Neff said. “They’ve been all on board for making sure public safety is priority.”

Associated Press journalists were allowed on board a 29-foot U.S. Coast Guard boat Wednesday to observe. The boat, typically used for search-and-rescue operations, traveled near the secure zone of the convention site via Lake Michigan and the river that empties into it.

A large section of the river has been shut down to commercial and recreational traffic this week, with very few exceptions, like residents who live on the river. Within an hour, the Coast Guard boat had passed vessels from Milwaukee police, state conservation wardens and a heavily armed specialty Coast Guard tactical force in camouflage gear.

The patrols are part of a massive security plan that Milwaukee police, the U.S. Secret Service and others have been detailing for more than a year. Security around former President Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has been especially tight in the wake of last weekend's apparent assassination attempt.

“There is no higher level of security that can be invested in events such as this,” Milwaukee Police Chief Jeffrey Norman told the AP on Wednesday.

So far, no major incidents have been reported on the water during the convention, according to the Coast Guard.

Patrol boats typically depart from a Coast Guard facility south of downtown on Lake Michigan, before turning into the mouth of the channel where the river begins. Speeds are then slowed to 5 mph and boats pass by the restaurants and converted warehouses of Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward on the way to the secure zone.

The boats are tasked with monitoring Milwaukee's downtown bridges and keeping unauthorized people and vessels out of the secure zone.

They are also on the lookout for anything suspicious.

As the Coast Guard vessel traveled near the downtown security zone, the crew spotted something mysterious floating in the water. They turned the boat around and fished it out, discovering the object was only a red and gray nylon tarp that had been rolled up and posed no threat.

Coast Guard officials said the help from other agencies this week also means they can keep up their usual public safety duties.

“Yes, we’ve got the national security event here, the RNC. That doesn’t mean we’re ignoring the rest of our normal mission — search and rescue,” said Coast Guard Lt. Phillip Gurtler. “We still have the coverage that we need.”

The story has been updated to correct the name of the Milwaukee police chief to Jeffrey Norman, instead of Norman Jeffery.

Did you know Hardik Pandya proposed to ex-wife Natasa Stankovic on a yacht?

Let's take a look at their relationship timeline.

vicem yachts instagram

Indian cricket star Hardik Pandya and Serbian model-dancer Nataša Stanković announced their separation yesterday, after months of speculation. Sharing an Instagram post, the former couple wrote that they have “mutually decided to part ways” after four years of being together.

“We are blessed with Agastya, who will continue to be at the centre of both of our lives and we will co-parent to ensure that we give him everything that we can for his happiness,” they added.

The duos whirlwind romance unfolded entirely in the public eye. Their love story, though brief, captured headlines with its unexpected twists and turns. Let’s take a look at their relationship timeline:

Hardik and Natasa’s first meeting

Theirs was a chance encounter in 2018, reportedly facilitated by a mutual friend at a nightclub. Little is known about the details of their initial spark, but Natasa later revealed in their wedding video that Hardik’s unique charisma left a lasting impression.

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by @natasastankovic__  

A romantic yacht proposal

This spark quickly blossomed into a full-fledged love affair, culminating in a romantic and very public proposal on a yacht in 2020.

Their pregnancy announcement

Just months later, amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, the couple surprised fans with the announcement of their pregnancy. Adorable photos showcasing Natasa’s baby bump flooded social media, and in July 2020, they welcomed their son, Agastya, into the world.

Renewing their vows in Udaipur

In what seemed like a solidification of their bond, Hardik and Natasa renewed their wedding vows in a lavish ceremony held in Udaipur, Rajasthan , in February 2023.

The elaborate celebration, featuring both Christian and Hindu traditions, was a grand display of their commitment, further captivating their fans and the media.

However, by May 2024, cracks began to appear in the seemingly perfect facade. Coinciding with Hardik’s dip in performance during the Indian Premier League season, rumors of marital trouble began to swirl. Social media became a breeding ground for speculation, fueled by Natasa removing “Pandya” from her online profiles and the disappearance of their wedding pictures.

Despite attempts to quiet speculation by re-uploading the photos, the couple recently announced their separation through a joint statement on social media. While the exact reasons behind their split remain private, they assured fans that they would co-parent their son Agastya, leaving fans to ponder the highs and lows of their brief but eventful time together.

Will Smith and Johnny Depp Seen on Yacht Trip Together

Will smith and johnny depp were photographed on a yacht together days before they performed at andrea bocelli's 30th anniversary show..

Captain Jack Sparrow is back on the high seas with a new friend.

Johnny Depp and Will Smith   were photographed together on a yacht, along with Egyptian singer Ahmed Saad , during a trip to Europe.

"Great feeling to gather with friends," Saad wrote in Arabic on an Instagram post shared July 16. "Thanks my friends for the lovely visit."

Depp, 61, wore a printed shirt over a T-shirt, paired with jeans, sunglasses and a bandana. Smith, 55, sported a blue button-down short-sleeve shirt over a white top, paired with gray shorts and white socks.

Days later, Depp and the Men in Black actor performed in Italy on the second night of a three-day concert celebrating Andrea Bocelli and the 30th anniversary of the start of his music career.

During the July 17 show, Smith performed a spoken rendition of the Broadway classic "You'll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel   while Depp played guitar onstage as Bocelli sang “En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor."

The night also featured performances from Russell Crowe and  Ed Sheeran , with the famed Italian singer sharing highlights on his Instagram Stories.

"Amazing encounter with Hollywood legends," he wrote on his Instagram , alongside videos of himself with several of the stars, "which possess incredible musical skills besides their Oscar winning acting abilities."

Adam Sandler & Timothée Chalamet

The two actors, who costarred in the 2014 film  Men, Women & Children , reunited for an outdoor game of basketball in New York City in July 2023.

The actor has worked with the Wu-Tang Clan rapper on several movies, including The Man with the Iron Fists , American Gangster and The Next Three Days . But their bond goes much deeper than that. "As friends, we talk," Crowe tells Fuse. "It is no effort for me to give a friend advice. Film has many gods and you have to understand, as a director, you will be required to please and appease them all."

Before running into each other again at Wimbledon, the unlikely duo first crossed paths at the Downton Abbey set. "She actually came on-set with her brother, James, a few years ago," Dockery told E! News ."They are good fans of the show."

When the "footballer" moved to L.A. and became a "soccer player," he befriended the rapper. Becks appeared on Snoop's reality show, the two played soccer and Snoop plays his new music for David first. Weirdness: 8/10
