A classic reborn

Vicem’s Classic 65 is set to make its return to water with a new mid-ship, a new hull and new range of possibilities.

Turkish builder Vicem Yachts has confirmed that the brand will be re-releasing its iconic model, the 65 Classic.

Vicem has expressed that the model will be slightly updated from its traditional design, one example being the increased size  of the windows and port lights throughout the boat’s front and its saloon.

The model will also be built in either traditional cold-moulded or a composite fibreglass construction, depending on an owner’s preference.

Of the three hulls currently in construction, two are fibreglass and one is cold-moulded.

The new 65 Classic is also set to offer a reworked interior with the option of a full-beam, mid-ship master stateroom located just under the saloon, as well as a flybridge.

The galley and accommodations are located on the lower deck in the standard three-cabin configuration, allowing spacious seating options throughout the saloon and the aft deck.


“Vicem is committed to offering owners choices, and it doesn’t stop at the hull construction material,” said Vicem’s Production Manager Yigit Akbarlas regarding this focus on customisation.

“Owners can also choose between traditional shaft-drive propulsion or Volvo-Penta IPS pod drives.”

Vicem has stated via a press release that both options will deliver a cruising speed of roughly 23 knots, and a top speed exceeding 28 knots.

“We believe that this already successful model will fit in perfectly with what we are doing with other yachts in the Classic series,” added Arbalas.

“That is, to provide the timeless, traditional look for which Vicem is known but also by providing customers incredible choice from construction and drivetrain to interior design and décor.”
