Hear the word Vicem and chances are you’ll conjure-up mental images of lovely cold-molded wooden luxury cruisers hand-crafted by Turkish artisans…
But for the 2023 Palm Beach Boat Show, the builder is dipping a tentative big toe into the crowded US center console fishing/cruising market with the global debut of its brand new Vicem 37 CC. And, wait for it, it’s being molded out of fiberglass.
Vicem teamed-up with Turkish designer and passionate angler Murat Iyriboz and Virginia-based naval architects DLBA to shape this new Vicem 37 CC.
In addition to a walkaround center console, the 37 will also be offered as a 37 Express with a covered foredeck and deep, family-friendly cockpit protected by a tall, wrap-around windshield.
In true Vicem style, the boat will come with plenty of old-school boat-building touches, like shiny-varnished teak around the bow, gorgeous teak helm seats and hand-stitched upholstery.
While fishing will be its main forte – witness the multitude of rod holders scattered around the decks – the Vicem 37 CC is also being targeted at the family owner. Hence the big sunpad and U-shaped seating in the bow, three-across helm, and rear-facing seating in the cockpit.
