If there was one real head turning yacht that graced the docks at the Palm Beach International Boat Show in 2016 it was the Vicem Yachts new Custom 65’ Flybridge which successfully debuted there.
If there is a word that describes the all-new 65 footer offering, it is spacious. With a beam of 5.6 metres there is sufficient interior volume to choose between spacious two and three cabin designs, to offer luxurious galley-up or galley-down choices, or eve to add a convertible office or a dinette below.
Designed in-house at Vicem she has a handsome classic look and provides a quiet, smooth ride because of cold moulded mahogany construction technique.
Every Vicem Yacht is constructed this way using African and South American Mahogany and Epoxy resin. Every employee at the factory is a qualified carpenter, designer or engineer and each one, goes that extra mile to ensure the highest quality in their workmanship.
All wood used on hull, keel, chine, sheer, frames, and beams are coated with epoxy resin serving as a moisture barrier. The exterior of the hull and interior of the entire bilge and engine room area is further coated with a layer of E-glass cloth and epoxy resin that is finished with epoxy fairing compounds, epoxy primers, and poly-urethane paint. This construction technique results in a stronger and quieter vessel with a smoother ride, providing natural insulation from humidity and noise.
Over 151 Vicem Yachts up to 33 metres have been built using this time-proven blend of modern and traditional construction methods.
The dimensions boast a LOA of 19,8 m and a draught of 1.60 m with 49,500kg of displacement with full load.
Powered by twin Volvo Penta D13-900 (2 x 900 HP – 662kW @2,300rpm) she is easy to drive thanks to the Volvo Penta control system and conventional shaft drive.
At 10 knots a long range of over 1,000 NM is featured, while at 22 knots of cruising speed it goes to 350 NM. Performance goes up to 27 knots at maximum speed.
