Vicem 72 (now called 77) Overview
A Modern Classic - the Vicem 72' Flybridge Classic Cruiser is handcrafted from the finest materials available to be the best in its class and size range. This yacht has a handsome classic look and provides a quiet, dry ride because of Vicem’s superior design and construction technique.
Vicem Yachts are constructed of African and South American Mahogany and Epoxy resin. Mahogany is a renewable resource, reducing our carbon footprint. Also noteworthy, is the fact that Vicem Yachts are constructed in clean factories without the smell of styrene emissions found in polyester fiberglass factories. Vicem employs very few minimum skilled workers; every boat builder is a qualified carpenter who performs at different levels depending on the difficulty of the task. All wood on a Vicem hull and the keel, chine, sheer, frames, and beams are coated with epoxy resin serving as a moisture barrier.
The exterior of the hull and interior of the entire bilge and engine room area is further coated with a layer of E-glass cloth and epoxy resin that is finished with epoxy fairing compounds, epoxy primers, and poly-urethane paint. Over 100 Vicem Yachts up to 92 feet have been built using this time-proven blend of modern and traditional construction methods.
The Vicem 72 has a custom interior equipped with three private staterooms, three heads with separate stall showers, an amazing galley that rivals any home kitchen and a light and airy main salon with 360 degree views.
Outdoor entertaining is a pleasure with a very large cockpit equipped with L-shaped settee and high-low fold out dining table. Up a graceful spiral staircase is the immense fly-bridge equipped with wrap-around seating, wet bar, BBQ grill and more.
Crew accommodations include a private stateroom with twin berths and private crew head.
The Main Salon on the Vicem 72 is spacious and stunning. Words cannot do justice. Port side is a comfortable settee with a mahogany entertainment cabinet aft. A built-in flat screen TV is above this cabinet. Custom, mahogany wood work above blends the air conditioning system into the beautiful decor. Starboard side is another straight settee and a large , movable dining table. Additional seating at the dining table is provided by 2 fantastic custom seats that have storage inside. Forward of the starboard settee is a wine chiller in a custom mahogany cabinet. An ice maker is stowed under the forward facing companion seat on the port side.
The lower helm is located forward of the main salon, starboard side. A helm door provides easy access to the wide side decks for ease in boat handling. A complete helm and large and comfortable helm seat makes navigation a pleasure in bad weather.

From the salon, it is four graceful steps down to the open galley, with its cathedral ceiling open to the windshield above. There is ample storage for all cookware, and all drawers have the desirable "soft close" feature. Large windows at counter height provide extra natural lighting and the galley island also serves as a "sea" brace while underway. Beautiful beveled granite counter-tops complete the classic look. A washer/dryer combo unit is mounted under the companionway steps.

The Master Stateroom is starboard of the galley, in the quiet mid-ship area. It has a large walk-around berth with drawers underneath and night stands. A wall mounted flat screen TV is opposite the bed with distinctive blue LED overhead accent lighting as well as discreet floor night lights. Forward of the berth is a settee and desk. On the aft wall are beautiful mahogany hanging lockers and drawers.
The master head is located forward with a Techma electric head, vessel sink, granite counters and beautiful tile work in the separate stall shower.
The VIP cabin, which is often mistaken for the master stateroom, is all the way forward with a large island berth, beautiful mahogany hanging locker and drawers, a dressing table with seat and mirror and settee seating.
A private head is just aft, port side, with a Techma electric head, granite counter-top, vessel sink and beautiful tiled separate stall shower.
Bunk Room and Day Head
A large and perfectly laid-out bunk room is located forward, starboard side. She is equipped with two large single berths separated by a night stand and cabinetry. When needed, two large pullman berths drop down to provide berths for 4. This cabin has its own entertainment system and a 17" flat panel TV with a private cable TV receiver.
The day head is located forward of the galley, port side, and is equipped with an electric Techma head, granite counter-tops, vessel sink and separate stall shower with custom tile work.
Cockpit and deck
The large cockpit on the Vicem 72 is accessed from the swim platform through a transom door. A very large L-shaped settee provides plenty of seating and a custom mahogany table can be raised and opened for dining or left low and closed for cocktails. A a granite topped mahogany cabinet houses a refrigerator. Engine room and crew quarters are accessed through an opening hatch in the cockpit. Double sliding doors and a small step up open the main salon to the cockpit offering a vast entertaining platform.

The flybridge is entered from the cockpit up a beautiful spiral staircase with perfectly manufactured stainless steel rails (you'll never find the welds!). The flybridge provides great site lines, with a huge U shaped settee that seats six. To port is a large storage area with a stainless steel full size LYNX BBQ grill, refrigerator, stainless sink, and ice maker. The helm has a Stidd double bench on the starboard side with a double nav seat to port. Forward of the seating is an immense protected storage area. A fantastic double settee located on the aft end of the bridge overlooks the cockpit.
