The Vicem 65 Flybridge will make her world debut at this week's Palm Beach International Boat Show.

Vicem is offering the 65 Flybridge with a choice of two or three staterooms, with a galley-up or galley-down layout and the option of a convertible office or dinette. Design is by Vicem's in-house team.

Key specs include a draft of 5 feet 3 inches, which makes her Bahamas-friendly. Power is a pair of 625-horsepower Volvo Penta D11-625 diesels that allow a range of 450 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 16 knots, or a range of 915 nautical miles at 10 knots. Top hop is 19 knots.

Construction materials: African and South American mahogany, which Vicem says is a renewable resource.

The 65 Flybridge joins a big family: Vicem has built more than 100 yachts up to 107 feet length overall.
