New Model: Vicem 67 Cruiser

Vicem is excited to announce the launch of a new cold-molded build explorer yacht, the 67 Cruiser.  The 67 Cruiser presents herself in a traditional profile with a flying bridge and hardtop, bringing together Vicem’s timeless design with numerous features that today’s boaters want in their next yacht.  An elegant motor yacht, the Vicem 67 Cruiser features a classic layout with five distinct social areas, including a formal dining area to port with seating for four, galley opposite that can be open or closed off, depending on owner preference, and equipped for the discriminating chef with abundant space on Corian counters, and a full slate of appliances. The saloon has facing settees port and starboard, served by a table on a high-low pedestal. The lower helm is open to the social areas of the main deck, and has a side door for easy access to the side decks. Since the additional design, Vicem has added a day head to the main deck to ensure guest comfort under way.  Port and starboard stairs from the aft deck provide simple three-step access to a broad to swimming platform, which lowers hydraulically into the water for bathing. The aft deck is shaded by the large flybridge overhang and features a wide transom settee served by a solid-wood table for al fresco dining for eight.  The flybridge provides shelter to the upper helm station, as well as forward-facing companion seating, an al fresco galley console, and a U-shaped settee. The flybridge can be a gathering spot for owner and guests on pleasant days at sea.  At anchor, a large fore-deck sun pad on the trunk cabin is equipped with a folding awning for wind and sun protection. There’s also a forward-facing settee at the bow. Wide side decks is protected by high bulwarks topped with a stainless steel railing to lend safe access to the fore-deck.  The interior is finished in Vicem’s signature book-matched veneers, with the builder’s craftsmanship on full display. This tradition works with an updated design with a three-part wooden and glass sliding door that opens wide to add an indoor-outdoor feel to the saloon and cockpit.  Below the Vicem 67 Cruiser features a three-stateroom layout, including both forward and amidships masters with king-size beds, as well as an en suite starboard guest stateroom with a double bed. Throughout the build, craftsmanship is apparent in the finishes and attention to detail. Stowage in lighted hanging lockers, beneath berths, and in nightstands can accommodate owner and guests for extended cruises. Heads features wood-framed, tempered-glass shower doors, Corian counters, and premium fixtures. A crew’s quarters for two is located aft and has an eat-in galley, laundry facilities, and a head with separate shower.  Built with a hard-chined planning hull, the Vicem 67 Cruiser is constructed of cold-molded plywood mahogany using West System epoxy, resulting in a strong hull that’s light in weight. The build uses cold-molded plywood decks, superstructure, and housetop, sheathed with one ply of E-glass biaxial fabric with epoxy coating and lamination. The deck and house-top structure use mahogany framing and beams. Mahogany and hardwood are used in the stringers, keelson, and sheer, and the structural engine beds are cold-molded, laminated mahogany. The hull-deck joint is glued and mechanically fastened. Vicem uses epoxy undercoating, fairing compound, and barrier coat in addition to anti-fouling on all hull surfaces below the waterline. In addition, the builder has used acrylic coatings for the topsides and boot stripe. Quarter guards and rub rails have been laminated mahogany with stainless strikers.  The Vicem 67 Cruiser hull number one is powered by twin Volvo 1000hp with conventional shaft drives and custom designed 4-blades Nibral propellers. Speeds with the standard engines is a 16 knots cruise and a 25 knots top speed. With that engine package, the range at cruise is 800 nautical miles, with a 2,250-nautical-mile range at 8 knots.  Other engine choices are Volvo 725hp abd 900hp.
