Vicem, the Turkish builder that produces Downeast-style boats, is introducing a new 58 Classic at the Fort Lauderdale show. The new low-profile 58 is made with Vicem’s trademark cold-molded mahogany to provide a strong, smooth and quiet ride, and it has Vicem’s long, graceful sheerline and eye-catching tumblehome aft.
The 58 is a larger and newer version of Vicem’s popular 52, but its 16’7” beam provides more elbow room and the 58 has enough room for what the company calls an Open Galley below, with a generous eight-feet of headroom and a large amount of entertaining space all around. The boat comes in a two- or three-cabin configuration, with the master stateroom in the bow with its own en suite head and shower. A guest stateroom with two berths is a bit aft on the starboard side, also with a head and shower. In the three-cabin version, the extra stateroom, on the port side, takes up some of the open galley area.
The luxurious salon has windows on three sides plus two large, sliding glass doors that separate it from the cockpit. It has a classic layout with settees on each side, an entertainment center with a 40-inch TV, and a beautiful raised mahogany helm and a large bench seat. A side door gives immediate access to the starboard deck.
The planing hull has a hard chine and a 16.5-degree deadrise at the transom. Powered by twin 725-hp Volvo diesels, it is expected to top out at about 28 knots and cruise at 24 knots, with a range of 325 nm.
