New Model: Vicem 75 Classic Flybridge

Vicem makes the 2010 fall European show season full of new models and after launching the 78 Cruiser in Cannes the Turkish builder headed to Genoa presenting the 75 Classic Flybridge. The 75 Classic Flybridge is the latest to come from Vicem and its fifteen person design team. This new model has similar looks to the 72 of the same range but as any Vicem it is a complete novelty built in wood cold molding method, and suited to the owners needs. In case of hull one we had a three cabin layout with galley down finished in sanded wood to European Italian taste style. But a four cabin version is also available. The outside lines of the 75 Classic Flybridge follow that of the Down East Lobster boat of the Maine in the USA. But do not be mistaking this is a full planning hull with a medium Vee seventeen degrees dead rise hull giving max speeds of 30 knots. But if you want to think of economics a range of 870 nautical miles is possible cruising at only 11 knots.
