The all new Vicem Yachts 46 IPS
Vicem Yachts 46 IPS – Comfortable and luminous space
At the Palm Beach International Boat Show, Vicem Yachts presented the world premier of the V46 IPS – the very first model of the new Vicem IPS line. This model is the first Vicem built in fiberglass/epoxy, in this size. Light and sturdy, the Vicem 46 IPS has sufficient interior volume to allow the owner to choose between spacious two and three cabin designs. The yacht’s dimensions boast a LOA of 14,02 m and a draft of 0,70 m with a displacement of 18.000 kg at full load. This yacht – designed by Vicem’s in-house design team – has a handsome classic look and provides a quiet, smooth ride, thanks to Vicem’s renowned superior design and construction techniques. With excellent use of exterior and interior design, the Vicem 46 stands out from other yachts of the same length. The lounge area offers comfortable seating to fully enjoy the entertainment systems, while the large side windows and front windshield provide excellent visibility and lots of daylight. For maximum comfort when under way, the helmsman has an ergonomic chair and the station is complete with up-to-date electronic instruments.
The interiors are quite spacious – thanks to the Volvo Penta IPS engines that allow for a smaller engine room, with obvious advantages for livability. The standard layout for the sleeping area foresees 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. 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.
