In 1991 Vicem made the biggest splash of all with the introduction of their Classic series. For a builder in Turkey to produce the epitome of classic Down-East stylings struck some as presumptuous. To us, it was a natural calling – we were irresistibly drawn towards the sirens of form and function. To endure challenging North Atlantic conditions season after season (and some of the most demanding captains in the world) traditional Maine lobster boats must please both the eye and the sea. Vicem found the Mediterranean offered similar challenges. And that our Classic series was the solution.
