Alongside the research and development in hull performance for the Mediterranean yacht racing scene, in 1990 Vismara Marine began developing some of the most iconic fast cruising yachts. Adopting a number of different design styles and utilising the very highest technological components, Vismara Marine rapidly developed itself as a leading trend setter in modern yacht design. The mid-1990’s saw the build and development of the Vismara/Baltic 78 ”Aledoa 4”, a yacht which brought together the very best in terms of design, build quality, strength and technology. Vismara Marine had now built its reputation as ‘the’ shipyard for tailor-made yachts for experienced owners.
Fast Cruising Yacht: innovation and technology
In 2001 Vismara Marina launched two of the most iconic cruising yachts ever seen – the Vismara V78 Fast Cruiser “Ghibellina” and the Vismara-Piano 60 “Kiribilli”.
Ghibellina was an extraordinary 80ft fast cruising yacht built of carbon fibre and designed to be easily sailed with a very small crew.
Kiribilli was developed in cooperation with the world-famous Renzo Piano international architectural practice as one of the finest example of blending modern maxi yacht technology with the timeless elegance of the classic J-Class yachts.
