Turkey’s Vicem Yachts has a new Classic-series flagship: the 82 Flybridge. Hull No. 1 was delivered in late January, with the 82 as the fourth flybridge model in the Classic lineup. Construction is in cold-molded, strip-planked mahogany with epoxy.
Vicem says the 82 is designed for socializing and entertaining. This intent is seen on the main deck, which has no galley. Instead, the main deck has seating for the family, friends and their friends from the cockpit to the salon. That seating is in addition to sun pads for four on the bow and forward-facing seating for two far forward at the bow.
The cockpit is set up with two face-to-face L-shaped settees. The one to port has a wooden table that’s longer than the one to starboard, which leaves room for stairs to the flybridge just forward. An additional settee for at least two is to port, just before the double sliding doors that lead into the salon. Inside is an L-shaped settee with a wooden coffee table. A Garmin-outfitted helm station is to starboard, with seating for at least five to port.
Up top, the 82’s flybridge continues the design theme. To port, there’s a two-person, aft-facing sun pad along with a U-shaped settee and two tables; to starboard are a sink, wine chiller, barbecue grill, a seat for one guest and the secondary helm station, with seating for a skipper and mate.
Belowdecks, the overnight accommodations include three staterooms, each with en suite heads. The full-beam, amidships master stateroom has hanging-locker stowage, a settee with additional stowage to port and a vanity to starboard. The king-size berth is on centerline. The starboard-side stateroom and a forepeak VIP each have queen-size berths.
The galley, also belowdecks, is to port and is centrally located amid the staterooms, further enhancing the idea of everybody on board gathering together. Appliances include a dishwasher, a full-size refrigerator, a microwave/oven, a four-burner electric cooktop—all by Bosch—and an Isotherm ice maker.
Power for the Classic 82 Flybridge is twin 900 hp Volvo Penta D13 diesels. Vicem Yachts says the yacht’s top hop is 17.8 knots, and the cruising speed is 15 knots. At 9 knots with a 10 percent fuel reserve, range is reportedly 1,100 nautical miles.
