Vicem’s latest launch––the 67 Cruiser––is a yacht that combines the builder’s skill in composite manufacturing and joinery with modern power and long-range capability.
The 67 Cruiser is built via cold-molded construction with mahogany and West System epoxy, creating a strong, yet relatively lightweight, hull. The hull-to-deck joint is glued and mechanically fastened, adding strength and rigidity. The yacht’s full-load displacement is 113,980 pounds.
Add in a hard-chine, planing hull form and twin, 1,000 hp Volvo Penta D13 diesels, and you get a yacht with admirable speed and range. Vicem reports the 67 Cruiser has a 25-knot top hop, and a comfortable 16-knot cruising speed. At cruise, Vicem reports an 800-nautical-mile range. Dial cruising speed back to 8 knots, and range reportedly climbs to 2,500 nautical miles.
For comfort on those extended cruises, the 67 Cruiser has a three-stateroom, four-head layout. All staterooms are en suite. The full-beam master is amidships and has a king-size berth. There is a forepeak VIP, also with a king-size berth. The third stateroom is abaft the VIP and to starboard with twin berths. There is a crew cabin option too.
When it comes to entertaining on board, there is an L-shaped settee to starboard and a smaller settee to port immediately upon entering the salon via the three-part, sliding-glass door. A formal dining table for four is also to port, positioned directly across from the galley, which can be open or partitioned off. (There is alfresco dining for six in the cockpit, protected by the flybridge overhang.) Just forward of the galley is the lower helm station, which also has side-deck access, a helpful setup for line handling shorthanded.
The upper helm on the 67 Cruiser’s flybridge is forward and to starboard, almost directly above the lower helm. The upper helm, and about half of the flybridge real estate is protected by a hardtop. There is a grill to port, U-shaped seating to starboard as well as room for two chaise-style lounges aft. There is space for a RIB and davit all the way aft.
