Upon visit at the Bahia Mar marina in Fort Lauderdale, sultry would best describe the feeling when someone would lay eyes on the Vicem 58 Classic. The emulated bright morning sunlight, accenting an exceptional finish for the yacht’s glossy mahogany sliding doors. The vision made the surroundings cozy and inviting when merged with the soft feel of the teak cockpit underneath.
When the day’s rays become too strong, a sunshade expands from the hardtop on demand to shield the cockpit. An L-shaped couch that sprawls along the transom and up the port side for the relaxation space out here. There is a smaller one for two by just forwarding that couch.
You can find the near-flawless fit and finish of the 58’s joinery to be impressive by just running the hands across the bulkheads and cabinet corners. Creating a sense of serenity in the salon, or comparable in the staterooms, there is something unique about the supple-tone mahogany.
Vicem 58 Classic has three-stateroom. There is a two-head layout with a forepeak master for this charming yacht. There are a step-up bunk and split-head structure for the master room. The second stateroom consists of bunks abaft to port. Abaft to starboard that has twin anchorage, it portions the ensuite head of the third stateroom.
It will reveal an unobstructed salon floor plan just by using two fingers, pushing one of the cockpit doors, and both unfold in concert. Light-tone and rival couches were to port and starboard. Forward and to starboard is the helm console, with side-deck access via a door next to it. The yacht’s 4-foot-9-inch draft makes her Bahamas-friendly as the setup is solid for short-handed cruising.
With a cold-molded, mahogany hull bracing an in-house-designed hard-chine, planing hull form, she is built durable. Coming from twin 725 hp Volvo Penta D11 straight-shaft diesel for power for the 58, and helping with close-quarters maneuverability are bow and stern thrusters.
The yacht has a 25-knot cruise speed and a 29-knot top-end offered by Vicem. Swathed in a timeless design built to time-proved and exacting standards, that’s some in-depth modern performance.
