The V54 was designed for a family use with high capability for the racing season. This means having the typical Vismara features: Lightweight construction with a carbon hull that keeps the displacement under 10- ton when 50 % of that is accounted to the keel. Easy sailing, using integrated systems on board combined with intelligent design such as the clean deck where all the controls recessed at the build phase and permit an easy maneuvering with simple function during cruising, all in a press of a batten. Other predispositions were also taken in account for regatta times. The mainsail has the lion’s share and jib with minimal overlap, a code zero or Gennaker will take turns on the bow. To meet the owners passion for both cruising and racing, there are two versions of the sail plan (square top main or traditional main specifically to ensure that only one person is required on deck besides the helmsman). In terms of waterlines, the classic geometry of the V55 is very much in evidence with the last innovate Vismara yachts with slender entries, maximum beam amidships and flat stern emphasized by an almost vertical angle between the bottom and sides, this clear division restates once again a design choice. The entire deck is all about straight lines with specific details used to indicate exclusivity. For instance, all of the sections of the guardrail have polygonal rather than rounded profiles. Deck features, such as lockers and the flash deck are all custom made.
