Vicem Yachts announced the launch of a new cold-molded motoryacht, the Vicem 67 Cruiser. Her traditional profile with a flying bridge and hardtop, bringing together Vicem’s timeless design with numerous features that today’s yachtsmen 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 with a 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 of the new Vicem 67 Cruiser 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 foredeck 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 thebow. Wide side decks is protected by high bulwarks topped with a stainless steel bowrail to lend safe access to the foredeck.
A tour of the Vicem 67 Cruiser’s interior reveals a great attention to detail, from seamless joinery work to the company’s signature book-matched mahogany cabinets and bulkhead walls. Other thoughtful considerations include subtle under-cabinet accent and courtesy lighting as well as a layout that encourages social interaction yet has the nighttime privacy owners desire.
Belowdecks, 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.
Propulsion and Performance
The Vicem 67 Cruiser is powered by twin 1,000-horsepower Volvo Penta D13 diesels using conventional shaft drives and custom-designed 4-blades propellers. The powerplant provides the vessel a 16-knot cruise and 23-knot top speed. With that engine package, the range at cruise is expected to be around 800 nautical miles, with a 2,200-nautical-mile range at 8 knots. Engine options also include a 725-horsepower Volvo Penta D11s as well as 900-horsepower Volvo Penta D13s.
