BILLY BEY is just finishing a major refit at Hinckley Yachts that included rebuilding the engines, painting the hull, updating the paint on deck, stripping and fairing the bottom, replacing the electronics and much more.  She is a beautiful example of the Vicem craftsmanship and her Hamilton waterjets allow her to access shallower water than other Vicems on the market and give a level of maneuverability not possible with conventional props.

Joystick Control


The perfect boat for cruising with family and friends, BILLY BEY is also equally adept and entertaining a group for a day trip or cocktail cruise.  Easy to handle and impressive in her performance, she is the ideal marriage of high craftsmanship, modern materials and thoughtful design.
