The definition of a “proper motoryacht” will vary subject to whom the question is directed, but all will agree the Vicem 82 qualifies quite easily.

From the top down, the Vicem 82 is a yacht made for spending extended periods of time in complete comfort. The open-air bridge provides the owner with a commanding view, while guests relax in the seating area adjacent to the helm station, enjoying an al fresco meal, or lounging in the hot tub. On the main level, the spacious and airy salon features enormous windows to bring the outside in, and a dining area sthat seats 6 in comfort, served by a well-equipped galley. A few steps forward, the enclosed wheelhouse has a settee plus a conveniently located half-bath. The lower level, accessed from the helm station or the salon, features an amidships, full-beam owner’s suite, a forward VIP stateroom and a pair of guest staterooms. Crew quarters are located aft of the engine room for privacy. Powered by two 1.100-hp Man V10 turbodiesel engines linked to a 2,168-fuel tank, the yacht with a cold-molded hull accented by gleaming mahogany has a top speed of 25 knots, with a cruise speed of 14 to 21 knots;
