A 2018 edition of Vicem Yachts' best-selling V58 Classic will be making its world premiere at the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show next week.
The V58 Classic is one of the Turkish shipyard's most successful models. Presented in 2010 for the first time, the 18.3m yacht has been completely restyled while maintaining some of the features that made it a best-seller – solid construction, large interior volumes and a hull form that guarantees long-distance cruising in complete safety. It is also available in a flybridge version.
The new V58 Classic has a cockpit and lounge that appear directly connected, thanks to a full-height window and door that completely disappear when opened. The cockpit features an L-shaped settee that runs parallel to the transom, leaving room for a passageway to the bathing platform. Two further settees complete the exterior layout, together with a mobile kitchen to starboard, next to the companionway leading below decks.
The salon, illuminated by windows that surround it on three sides and by the glass door that separates it from the cockpit, features a classic layout with two facing settees running fore and aft, an entertainment system with 40in TV and with a raised helm position equipped with the latest navigational instrumentation and a large bench seat.
A central stairwell leads directly to the galley, which is fully equipped for lengthy cruising and complete with above average storage space. Below the stairs there is space for a washing machine.
The Vicem 58 Classic’s three-cabin layout takes full advantage of the hull shape with its maximum beam forward. The full-beam owner’s cabin is at the bow and includes not only a classic queen size bed but also two settees to the left and right, entertainment system and also has its own washroom and bathroom with separate shower. Hull windows on sides give extra daylight.
A second bathroom is for the two other cabins and it can also be used as a day head from the companionway. The guest cabins have two single beds, large storage areas and an entertainment system. Single beds can be combined with a portable piece and turned into a double bed.
Equipped with twin Volvo Penta D8 725hp engines with in-line transmissions, the V58 Classic can reach a top speed of 29kt and a cruising speed of 25kt.
