About this Vicem Custom 65 IPS Classic


Don't miss this opportunity to purchase a custom Vicem 65 IPS, without the year-plus wait to have one built.   This  Vicem 65 was only used to display at boat shows and to show-off the exquisite mahogany woodwork Vicem Yachts are so well known for.  This model has the often requested galley-up design and includes so many features such as the helm door, full beam master, 4th stateroom that can be used either for captain but also designed to be part of the living quarters if needed. Take pleasure in the 360 degree view from the helm and such beautiful sense of space and light created by the vast headroom and numerous windows.

Last chance to see in New England before she heads south.  Hundreds of thousands in savings over an ordered boat - without the wait!

Cold molded explained

The cold-molded construction operation simply involves layers of thin veneers, oriented at different angles, glued over a mold.  The glue in this case being a specially formulated epoxy resin.  The marriage of engineered wood with formulated resins yields a hull that is lighter, stronger and more durable than a traditionally built boat.  There are two basic reasons for this:

1- Firstly, laminating several layers of wood at 90-degree angles optimizes the unidirectional strength of this naturally flexible product, making it ideally suited to resist and absorb the complex forces applied to a hull in a seaway.  Secondly,

2- Wood is a very strong material.  However, this strength is unidirectional, meaning you can easily bend the wood in one direction but it would break if you try to bend it in the other direction.  Binding together several layers of wood at 90-degree angles makes the hull much stronger in resisting the complex set of forces that effect the vessel during navigation.

Preventing the hull from absorbing more moisture than ideal is crucial in a wooden boat.  Many woods are two or even three times stronger when dry than they are when saturated with  moisture.  The cold molding system aims to keep the wood dry.  The epoxy soaks deep into the wood, sealing it off from moisture and oxygen.  Keeping the water out means no swelling and no rotting.  The glued joints are firmly bonded for long periods of time.  Through this method, the hull skin is built upon a wood frame in four directional layers of African or South American Mahogany (Sapele) composite planking.

The first layer (-45 degrees) is fastened to the frames, keel, chine and sheer strake with galvanized nails and saturated with epoxy; the second layer (+45 degrees) and third layer (90 degrees) are fastened and bonded with epoxy and stainless steel staples, while the fourth layer (0 degrees) is fastened via epoxy and stainless steel strapped staples that are then removed, leaving behind a smooth hull with no visible markings.  For larger, heavier yachts, an additional inner layer of edge-fastened strip planking mechanically locked together in a bead and cove fashion, with two outer layers of diagonally fastened mahogany planking, is required.  Both methods have mahogany laminated internal structural members for the keel, chine, sheer and beams.

The final structural construction step requires coating the entire bilge area, engine room and exterior of the hull with 10oz E-glass cloth, epoxy resin and a polyurethane paint system.  The exterior of the full is finished on top of the E-glass by multiple steps of long boarding, epoxy fairing compounds, epoxy primers and polyurethane paint to achieve a mirror-like finish.  The result is a yacht that has all the advantages of a laminated wood hull, such as natural insulating properties for sound and humidity, and is also stronger than standard fiberglass and traditionally built wooden yachts.
