With its classic lines and elegant interiors, the new Vicem 65 Custom Flybridge is simply a beauty not to be missed. Introduced at last spring’s Palm Beach show, the Vicem 65, like all Vicems, is built by old-world craftsmen in Turkey with cold-molded mahogany, giving the boat a smooth and strong, quiet ride with natural insulation from noise and humidity.
Because of their construction, Vicems can be highly customized. The 65, for example, comes with two or three staterooms, with galley up or down. Hull number one, with galley down, has a custom kids’ room just aft of the VIP stateroom in the bow; the two rooms are connected by a door, so they can be opened as a family suite. The headroom on the first boat also is exceptionally high (well over 7 feet) because the owner is tall; still the overall profile of the boat is relatively low, even with the flybridge. Fit and finish are exquisite throughout. Vicem uses laminated mahogany and epoxy resin to build the hull, decks and flybridge.
The Vicem 65 is powered by twin 900-hp Volvo diesels, and it tops out at 27 knots. At a trawler speed of 10 knots, range is 1,000 nm. Bump it up to 22 knots, and range is 350 nm.
