The Project

This is a very important example of the versatility of custom and semi-custom designs. The Vismara 54 OFC, brings together all of the experience garnered while designing and building different examples of Baltic 50 semi-custom craft and the 65’ocean-going “Mistera”. Many of the stylistic details are reminiscent of the interiors of “Beauceant” (Vismara 45 Fast Cruiser) and some of the deck details of the mas 60 “Kirribilli” Vismara 54 Ocean Fast Cruiser, destined for long-distance sailing and therefore, requiring materials and construction technology that will guarantee reliability, great marine qualities and easy manoeuvrability.

The hull and deck are in carbon fibre, pre-impregnated with epoxy resin and vacuum laminated then post-cured at 60° for 12 hours, which gives displacement - with IMS trim - of some 12,000 kg. The mast and Park Avenue boom are in carbon, as are the structural halyards. The teak deck has been vacuum laid, and it is marked by its open stern and double helm with integrated composite columns. The deck is extremely clean with all rig set underneath and servoassisted by 4 electric winches in the cockpit. The transom can be opened to store a tender, while the carbon gangway is installed, aft, as a bench for the helmsman, while sailing. The gunwale and the bow roller are in carbon. All of the elements of the composite material structures, including the ceilings, are painted with the aid of special epoxy matrix fillers and polyurethane paints. The parts of the wooden furnishings are beaded and applied to the composite material with “joint” supports so as to highlight the architecturally separate wood and composites. The free areas of the carbon sides have been left exposed behind the sofas in the dinette and in the cabins.


The style of the cabinetry is linear without raised cornices. The layout inside includes two twin cabins, one fore and the other aft of the dinette, each with large bathroom with shower and watertight bulkheads. The crew cabin is at the end of the bow, and this also serves as a sail locker; it has its own bathroom and independent entrance from the deck. The dinette is spacious, light and airy, with large windows in vacuum bonded Lexan. Also large and easily inspected is the perfectly soundproofed engine room in the stern. Systems and installations are definitely a point of pride on the Vismara 54, which is equipped with a very powerful set of next-generation gel batteries (600 Amp for services and 100 for engine ignition), which meets all of the power needs on board. The generator is in fact only used as means of charging the batteries, if needed. The boat has a complete range of equipment, in view of the schedule of long-range sailing, and it includes heating, water maker, washing machine, macerator, fridge and freezer. Autonomy is also ensured by the large capacity of 2 water tanks (each one 350 litres) and 2 fuel tanks for a total of 500 litres.
