Vicem Yachts is planning for the debut of the Vicem 67 Cruiser at the Newport International Boat Show in September.

The Vicem 67 Cruiser will have a flybridge with a hardtop, and with open space aft for a tender and a davit. The flybridge overhang will shade the cockpit, which will have alfresco dining for eight.

A lower helm station will be to starboard with a door to the side deck, for short-handed cruising and line handling. Three staterooms will be belowdecks: two with king-size berths and one with a double. There also will be quarters for two crew, located aft.

The Vicem 67 Cruiser will have a hard-chine planing hull constructed of cold-molded mahogany with West System epoxy. The deck and house-top structure will be built with mahogany framing and beams, using carbon fiber and epoxy at high-load areas for added strength.

“Vicem's proprietary cold-molded construction produces a hull that combines the best qualities of natural and synthetic materials in a handmade process,” Noelle Semmes, sales director of Vicem Yachts USA, stated in a press release. “Vicem incorporates high-tech materials, such as e-glass, carbon fiber and epoxy, to reinforce all stress points and encapsulate the inner and outer layers of the hull, but inside the hull itself, mahogany and epoxy laminate provide a better strength-to-weight ratio, while attenuating sound and reducing temperature. And reduced weight and better sea keeping mean we need smaller engines, giving us better fuel consumption.”

Power and Performance: The engine package will be twin 600-horsepower Volvo Penta D8 diesels with conventional shaft drives. Expected speeds are an 18-knot cruise and a 22-knot top hop. Engine options will include 725-horsepower Volvo Penta D11s and 900-horsepower Volvo Penta D13s.
