Vicem, the high-end Turkish builder, is starting work on a new long-range, cold-molded, three-stateroom, three-head 67 Cruiser that it will introduce at the Newport International Boat Show in September.

The cold-molded, all-mahogany Vicem 65 IPS Classic, just displayed at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, is a Turkish-built beauty with Downeast lines powered by twin 800-hp Volvo Penta IPS1050 pod drives for superior performance and ease of maneuvering around a dock.

New Low-Profile, Beautiful Vicem 58 Classic To Debut at Lauderdale Show

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…

Report from Palm Beach: “The Best of the Season.” Traditionally, the Palm Beach boat show is a buyer’s show; a lot of people, so the thinking goes, look at the Miami shows, but then a month later they actually buy in Palm Beach. The Palm Beach show, which just ended, certainly had a lot of the major cruising boats that had already been displayed in Miami, but it also had some new ones, including the Vicem 46IPS from Turkey and the Minorca 34 from Spain, while the new Sabre 45 (from Maine, of course) was undergoing sea trials just up…

Vicem 65: Cold-Molded, Classic Cruiser

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…
