Turkish builder Vicem Yachts proves that traditional styling is still in vogue with the 65 Classic Flybridge. The 66-footer has downeast lines, is available in fiberglass and cold-molded versions, can speed away when necessary, and has modern liveaboard comforts.

From the cockpit, the flybridge is accessed via starboard-side stairs. Up top, C-shaped seating converts to a sun pad. Two wooden dinettes are nearby for snacks, drinks or meals. Abaft this settee is an aft-facing sun pad for two. To starboard, there is a wet bar with a barbecue, a sink and a fridge/freezer to assist with alfresco entertaining. Forward of the wet bar is the two-seat upper helm station with twin 17-inch Garmin displays.

On the main deck, the teak cockpit has an L-shaped settee in the after portside corner. It’s accompanied by a wooden dinette. Forward and to port are two Besenzoni bar stools shaded by the flybridge, and connected via a frameless electric window to the salon, bar and sink inside.

The salon has an L-shaped settee to port with a coffee table. To starboard, there are cabinets and enough space for two free-standing chairs that won’t impede anyone’s ability to walk forward to the lower helm station, which has two Garmin screens and a door that provides side-deck access for easier docking.

Belowdecks, the 65 Classic Flybridge is flexible. The standard layout includes two en suite staterooms: a full-beam amidships master with a king-size berth and a forward VIP. Separating the two staterooms is a space that the builder calls a dining and lounge area, which has a head. With a sliding door, the overall space converts to a third en suite guest stateroom.

The 65 Classic Flybridge’s galley is also belowdecks, to port. It has a four-burner cooktop, cabinets, a sink and a microwave across from an L-shaped countertop.

In terms of the yacht’s exterior looks, Vicem says a light-blue hull has been the most popular paint selection, but colors are customizable.

Standard motors are 725 hp Volvo Penta D11 straight-shaft diesels. With optional Volvo Penta IPS1350 diesels, the builder reports a 32-knot top-end speed and a 26-knot cruising speed. Additional features include a hydraulic swim platform and four 630-amp lithium batteries that provide more than 15 hours of operating time at anchor.
