Vicem Yachts seized the moment at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to introduce their brand-new model the 65 IPS Classic to the American market. The 153rd hull built to date by Vicem, this model shows off the brand’s flair for combining classic motor yacht design with a luxurious finish and high performance capabilities. In addition to her elegant lines and stylish interior, the 65 IPS Classic is powered by twin 800 hp Volvo diesel engines which give her a cruising speed of 23 knots and a top speed of 26 knots.
Highlights onboard include the attractive and spacious cockpit which features an L-shaped sofa across the bow and a wet bar which is ideal for enjoying drinks after a quick dip in the sea. Future owners can select between three or four cabins according to their needs, and the yacht’s layout includes a roomy full-beam master suite with its own en-suite head and shower. There is also a VIP cabin which also benefits from an en-suite head and shower, as does the third cabin which is laid out as a twin.
Another remarkable feature of the 65 IPS Classic is the sheer sense of space throughout the yacht. “Our fully custom construction process allows us to build a yacht that is not hampered by the constraints of a molded hull, commented Vicem’s Chief Naval Architect and Marine Engineer, Sinan Unal. “Therefore, it was our goal to build a 65 footer with the internal volume of a typical 75 to 80 ft express cruiser.”
Contributing to this sense of spaciousness is the generous headroom which averages 7 feet across the yacht with an impressive 7.5 foot of headroom in the master suite. Sinan Unal added that, “The feeling of freedom, light and spaciousness is truly amazing! And of course, with all that additional volume come more closets and storage everywhere. We challenged our engineers to achieve this unrivaled space without altering the classic proportions of our exterior, so this yacht’s look is classic Vicem, sleek, elegant and uncluttered.”
