Vicem V46

The V46 IPS (46′ LOA, 14′ 9″ beam) built in fiberglass represents a departure for the experienced cold-molded Turkish builder. Behind the classic exterior, Vicem designers set out to create a comfortable and luminous interior. The lounge flows into the cockpit when the sliding door is open, and the lower deck benefits from the petite IPS drives for which the model gets its name.

These allowed for a smaller engine room, hence, more space for the two- or three-cabin layout. The deep-V hard chine hull moves through the water at close to 30 knots with the 435-hp Volvo Penta IPS 600s wide open, but what impressed most at sea trials was the level of quiet; at 25 knots just 62 decibels were detected.
