Vicem Yachts Unveils the 65 IPS Classic
The newly unveiled 65 IPS Classic, the Turkish-built yacht with classic Down East lines, is Vicem’s 153rd hull, and brings to bear everything the shipyard has become world renowned for in its 28 year history.
Powered by twin 800-hp Volvo Pentadiesels with IPS 1050 pod drives, the new Vicem 65 IPS Classic cruises at 23 knots – with a range of about 420nm – and tops out at 26 knots. Furthermore, the yard offers two other Volvo Penta engine options: 2xIPS 1200 or 2xIPS 1350. This Vicem’s the first in that size range to be fitted with the Volvo Penta IPS system.
The cockpit of the 65 IPS Classic has a large L-shaped sofa and a wet bar. The salon has an oversize L-shaped sofa to starboard and a large lounge chair, flanking an entertainment center, to port. The galley is up and forward to port, with lots of counter space for long-range cruising. The helm station to starboard has seats for two.
The all-mahogany 65 IPS classic can be built with three or four staterooms and three heads. Below, the master stateroom is midships and full beam, with a walkaround bed and a large ensuite head with shower. The VIP cabin is forward with a walkaround bed and en suite head and shower; the third stateroom with two berths is on the starboard side, also with a head and shower.
The exquisite wood work in the interiors is complimented by the latest in equipment and electronics, and a design that focuses on open spaces, storage aplenty and absolute comfort.
