Leading Turkish superyacht yard selects Trend Marine glass for two prestigious new yachts

August 30, 2012

VICEM Yachts, based in Antalya Turkey, has chosen chemically toughened laminated glass from world leading producer Trend Marine for their latest 32m and 35m superyachts.

Time was of the essence when VICEM Yachts contacted Trend Marine in early 2012 to supply a range of flat, curved and bi-curvature laminated glass for their 32m yacht project. With a growing order book, Trend Marine successfully delivered the full glass set meeting VICE’s deadlines. VICEM were so delighted with Trend’s quality, attention to detail and customer service that they have ordered the glass for their latest 35m yacht from the UK producer.
Trend Marine are supplying a full service package to VICEM Yachts, digital aperture scanning, engineering and class approvals, and installation by Trend’s own team of specialists. All of Trend Marine’s team are based at their modern production facility and HQ in Norfolk, England.

VICEM’s Purchasing Director, Mr Kazim Çidem, commented: “Our deadlines for the 32m yacht were very tight. Trend Marine have displayed a very high degree of professionalism and product quality. They are indeed world-class experts in their speciality. We are delighted to work with them on further superyacht projects.”

Trend Marine’s Managing Director, Frank Buckley, added “We are fully committed to developing the superyacht market for our glass and glazing solutions. The Turkish superyacht sector is experiencing positive growth and we are very pleased to have this strong relationship with a leading yacht builder in the region.”

Both Trend Marine and VICEM are exhibiting at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2012.
