Sportfish Deluxe

At first glance, the Vicem 63 Sportfish, launched in February at the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, resembles a classic sportfishing battlewagon from North Carolina’s finest custom yards, but the convertible was actually constructed by the Turkish firm Vicem, known for its impeccably built cruisers. 

Though Vicem is hardly a household name among die-hard sportfishermen, the $2.6 million boat is handcrafted with the same attention to detail as elite American brands, using a cold-molding build process that fuses mahogany with epoxy to create a lightweight yet virtually bulletproof hull. It is outfitted with the premium of sportfishing accoutrements, including a Pipewelders tuna tower, Pompanette fighting chair, custom teak helm chairs, and underwater lights. Twin 1,550-hp MAN engines give it a top speed of 38 knots. With an interior equipped with a full-beam master stateroom, a 50-inch plasma-screen TV, satellite TV, Bose home theater system, and chef’s galley with Sub-Zero refrigerator and climate-controlled wine cabinet, the 63 is certainly more family friendly than traditional sportfishing boats. The custom leather furniture, Khaya mahogany walls and cabinets with diamond-inlay patterns, and intricate teak flooring are testaments to Vicem’s scrupulous craftsmen.  (954.713.0737, www.vicemusa.com)
