The Vicem 46 IPS combines elegant looks with sportive lines and technology. With excellent use of exterior and interior design and it stands out from other yachts of the same length.
When coming aboard, you enter first into the bar zone with, a comfortable L-shaped settee. The lounge and cockpit are separated by a sliding door: when open there is no longer any separation and a single large living space has been created. The interiors are quite spacious – this is thanks to the Volvo Penta IPS engines that allow for a small- er engine room, with obvious advantages for livability. The standard layout for the sleeping area fore- sees two spacious double berth cabins and a functional open space galley. The owner’s cabin has a queen size bed, ample storage space, an entertainment system and a private bathroom complete with shower. Through-hull windows provide excellent natural lighting.
The guest cabin is equipped with two single berths that can be joined to make a single queen-size bed, while the guest bathroom can also be used as a day-head. The galley (down) is fully equipped for long cruising and comes with two electric burners, a microwave oven and ample storage space while the flybridge version hosts a bar area with electric BBQ and refrigerator, in addition to the lounge area and the captain’s seat. Powered by two Volvo Penta IPS 600 engines (2 x 435 HP provide 320kW @ 3,500rpm), the Vicem 46 IPS is easy to drive thanks to the extremely reliable Volvo Penta control system and the V-Type hard chine hull. Top speed is close to 30 knots, with a cruising speed of 26 knots. With the joystick and dynamic stability system, the owner will be able to easily maneuver the yacht in tight spaces, and also leave the helm while the yacht maintains her desired position.
