The 46-meter superyacht has three decks plus a sundeck. The hull of the Vulcan 46m is modern composite fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP).
This yacht is a medium speed triple deck motor yacht. 
Lay-out featuring an on-deck master and 5 guest cabins below, totaling 12 passengers. Salon, dining and sky lounge. Crew accommodation for 8 with crew messroom.

Her signature open Atrium design provides 45 feet of unbroken natural lighting, from the very top of the Sundeck all the way down to the Lower Deck. The main deck’s Master Suite uses every inch of this yachts’ 30 foot beam, and includes an office and private gymnasium. A graceful wraparound entry way leads to an inviting Jacuzzi and an arcing full-width head. Far aft is the galley, a dining area for ten, and a relaxing lounge and a spacious upper lounge area.

Vicem asked us to design a high-performance yet silent yacht that will appeal to many different types of owner. The first thing we talked about was performance: the Vulcan 46 had to guarantee high speeds, low fuel consumption and excellent stability. Its performance is the result of a recipe that involves several different ingredients: the proportions of the lines, structural equilibrium and harmony between the elements. Materials were important too: composites meant that we could create a light and also incredibly silent yacht.
