COLD-MOLDED CONSTRUCTI­ON

-

Vicem builds its semidispla­cement yachts with cold-molded constructi­on. Basically, the process is laminating, with West System epoxy layers of thin mahogany plywood and planks set at differing angles over a jig, creating a strong and lightweigh­t hull.

The hull includes a layer of fiberglass on the exterior surfaces and in the bilge. Each hull is faired for smoothness and then finished with Awlgrip.
