Refit: Vicem 54 FB

Vessel: Vicem 54 FB
Name: Sagamore
Owner: Sagamore Rockport Partners LLC
Hailing Port: Rockland, ME

This summer, Phase I of a refit job on a Vicem 54 FB was completed. The initial effort focused on areas of water migration and, therefore, commanded the attention of GIBY’s carpentry, fiberglass, and varnish teams. A significant amount of systems work was also performed. Rock star nautical photographer, Ailson Langley, captured images of the boat in the midst of this multiphase refit; a few of her photos are shown here, in addition to ours. This boat will be commissioned as a charter vessel. Phase II of the refit will begin this winter.
