As expected, the 65 IPS exhibits an extraordinary level of craftsmanship throughout, one of the hallmarks that has made the brand famous. 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. Sinan Unal, Vicem's Chief Naval Architect and Marine Engineer, says: "Our fully custom construction process allows us to build a yacht that is not hampered by the constraints of a molded hull, therefore, it was our goal to build a 65 footer with the internal volume of a typical 75 to 80 ft express cruiser. Vicem has always offered increased living space compared to the competition, but we made it a point to go beyond even our own standards. One thing that invariably leads to discomfort on a boat is headroom. Even with a wide beam and lots of windows, if the ceiling is just a few inches above the head, people will start feeling claustrophobic very soon. On this yacht, we have 7 ft of headroom average throughout, with the Master Cabin going up to 7"5"! 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". Noelle Semmes, sales director of Vicem Yachts USA, adds: "And let's not forget the foundation that lies below those beautiful lines, the best hull in the industry. Vicem's proprietary construction produces a hull that mixes the best of synthetic materials and natural ones in a completely hand made way, which ensures utmost quality throughout. Like all high end brands, we use high tech fibers like e-glass and carbon fiber to reinforce all stress points and encapsulate the inner and outer layers of the hull, but inside the hull itself, instead of more fiberglass or foam like production boats, we use a mahogany and epoxy laminate that is far superior. Why use wood as the inner layer? Because it is much better. On a weigh-to-strength ratio, mahogany is much stronger than fiberglass, while drastically reducing sound and temperature levels. And because this construction uses a lot less epoxy, our hull is much lighter and not as stiff as a fiberglass one, which means we do not pound and rebound over the waves but rather, glide right through them. If you've never been out on a Vicem, you are in for the revelation of your life. A much gentler ride, on a hull that is virtually silent and much cooler in summer, or warmer in winter, than a plastic fiberglass boat. And of course, because of the reduced weight and better sea keeping, we need smaller engines, which results in better fuel consumption"
The Vicem 65 IPS Classic is the latest offering from a brand that has distinguished itself from the very beginning for honoring the old traditions of both Turkish and American naval design, while infusing their creations with an amount of luxury and quality of fit and finish that remains unmatched in the classic yacht segment. That, coupled with a construction method that sets them ahead of the competition, is the reason why Vicem is so respected in the industry and desired among yachting enthusiasts.
