The Abacos are beautiful - a chain of islands that lie scattered across the turquoise and cobalt waters of little Bahama Bank like a tossed off strand of elegant pearls.

It's not every boat that could stand up to the aesthetic challenge of these islands. But when I met my ride at the dock in Marsh Harbour's Boat Harbour Marina, I was reminded that the Turkish-built Vicem 72 Classic, with her traditional Downeast profile, dark hull, and beautifully finished wood trim, could hold her own against any scenery. But was she just another pretty face?

We'd find out. Joining me on this test trip were Vicem founder Sebastian Hafizoglu; the company's international business development manager, Deniz Ozcakir; Vicem Yachts USA president Michael Landsberg, and Captain Steve Dumont. Rounding out our complement were Landsberg's wife Laurie, photographer Jim Raycroft, and stewardess Sky du Toit, on leave from a megayacht assignment. 

Steve had thoughtfully enlisted her to add a touch of personal service and make our experience aboard that much more pleasant. The route we'd planned included stops in Hope Town, Man O' War, and Green Turtle before heading over to West End, Grand Bahama. From there, we'd cross the Gulf Stream and deliver the 72 to her berth at the Palm Beach Boat Show.
