"This yacht is a true masterpiece, the attention to detail and workmanship is second to none and must be seen to be appreciated."
If you're looking for a top tier quality dayboat, but would like something that's not cookie cutter or a run of the mill production boat. Then, you owe it to yourself to come see this magnificent custom built yacht.
The Windsor Craft 36 built by Vicem Yachts is more than just a luxury boat, its a work of art. This is truly a magnificent boat from bow to stern and even though the fit and finish topside is impressive, the below deck space will give you the feeling of being in a classic wooden cruising yacht. Below, you are wrapped in rich mahogany joinery work with attention given to every detail. The overhead is made of wood planks painted with while Awlgrip which looks like lacquer, and mahogany strips run athwartship, again drawing upon the classic interior decor of the yachts of yesteryear. The hull is over an inch thick and utilizes choice mahogany planking in opposing directions to provide strength as well as function. The triple planked African mahogany uses the West System of epoxy impregnation. The result is a hull that is as impervious to water migration as is fiberglass and needs no more upkeep. On the forward deck and aft deck the (Windsor Craft 36) has beautiful mahogany with dozens of coats of varnish. All that is needed to keep this up is some touch up every six months or so. The Navy Blue hull sides are painted with low maintenance Awlgrip. The (Vicem Windsor Craft) 36 requires no more maintenance than a fiberglass hull, but has all of the aesthetic advantages of classic wood.
The immense cockpit offers both open and covered lounging areas with a large sofa to port,that converts to a sleeping berth. The galley is to starboard with a built in grilling station for al-fresco dining. The head is forward on the starboard side and is a small version of what one might expect to find in an executive suite. All counter tops, both in the head and in the galley are granite. The (Windsor Craft 36) built by (Vicem) Yachts is built for yachtsmen – both power and sail – who want not only the very best in a day boat, but one with truly rare classic attributes along with modern appliances and technology.
The Volvo Penta diesel D6 Engines provide a comfortable cruising speed of 26 knots with 660 combined horsepower, and stern drive power requires a mere 36 inches of draft making it ideal for south Florida waters.

Construction Details: (Vicem Windsor Craft) are constructed from cold-molded mahogany. The process involves applying solid wood strips of veneer in three opposing layers over the mold, then saturating each layer using two-part West System epoxy. (Vicem) says that this results in hulls that are lighter, stronger and more durable than traditionally built fibreglass boats. Each hull is said to take 3,800 man-hours to build.
Engine Access: The twin diesels are accessed though a hinged hatch that raises the aft portion of the L-shaped cockpit settee via a hydraulic ram. A ladder leads below and there is very good access all around the engines. Another hinged hatch forward in the cockpit sole provides excellent access to a large storage area as well as the fuel and water tanks, water heater, seawater strainers, batteries and the 5 kW Onan generator. The flooring throughout the cockpit/helm area is teak planking, which wisely is being left to weather naturally.
Accomodations: The accommodation area forward features a teak and holly cabin sole, a bow berth, a linear galley area to port and the head/shower to starboard. The mahogany below is mostly satin finished with gloss trim, which works well considering the huge amounts of wood. Again, the woodwork is exquisite and the galley and head compartments are truly works of art. The berth can be configured as two singles or, with an infill cushion, it becomes almost palatial in size. This (Windsor Craft 36) sleeps 3 (2 below and 1 in the fully enclosable cockpit)The headliner in the accommodation area and the covered cockpit area are of off-white molded fiberglass that looks like tongue and groove planking. This is a real traditional touch from the days when overheads were planked and it adds even more of the classic look to this yacht. All doors are solid mahogany, another feature seldom seen today.
