New Bahama Bay

The Vicem 61 Bahama Bay premieres at the Tuyap Istanbul Boat Show.

Vicem Yachts will display their new 61 Bahama Bay at the Tuyap Istanbul Boat Show, Feb 18-25. According to the company, the new model brings together the classic Vicem Down East style with technology from Volvo IPS. Like other models in the Vicem Vintage Line, the cold-molded process is used to build the BB61.

Antonio Caviglia, the Vicem of Europe Sales Director, describes the new model:
"The Bahama Bay 61, combines all of the great attributes of the Vicem Classic line, including the wonderful character of the cold-molded mahogany construction, with the modern advantages of the Volvo IPS drive. The result is a wonderful +20knots cruiser with outstanding maneuverability, excellent efficiency, and a 30-knot top speed. Furthermore, the specially designed exterior differentiates it from the Vicem Classic Line and provides for a more rakish profile, a fully covered
cockpit and increased interior natural lighting thanks to the new large oval side-windows in the master cabin and the kitchen. The interior layout is also unique, with a very spacious midship master cabin, a guest cabin with twin beds, and a very private and roomy VIP towards the bow. It is really a very harmonious boat."
