Concept

 The new Vismara 56 Mills is the end result of the idea of open company Vismara.

Following the great success of the Vismara Mills 62 ‘SuperNikka’, Mark Mills was employed again to help develop a brand new sailing yacht for an experienced owner, who was looking for a high quality blue water cruiser with tried & tested technological solutions, built using the best composite materials, and able to sail with lightness in typical Vismara style. This new project also involved Lucio Micheletti who developed the modern, luxurious and extremely functional interior design.

 Construction

 The Vismara 56 Mills employs an innovative and harmonious hull structure made of carbon fibre and epoxy sandwich, and then post-cured at a controlled temperature of 60° for a period of 24hrs. Internally, the yacht features a high quality mix of structural furniture and Burma teak to create a blue water cruiser optimised for sailing in the Mediterranean in the greatest of comfort – a perfect integration of elements and Italian style. This is the same way Vismara Marine has in the last 30 years launched all its technologically advanced fast cruising yachts, and has resulted in the a displacement for this certification Oceanic A 17,00 m yacht of just 14.000 kg.

Interiors

Lucio Micheletti worked closely with the Vismara Marine Spa project team to develop the interior design which features a three cabin layout, each with king-size beds and an ensuite bathroom. The master cabin is forward and ahead of the saloon. A fourth crew cabin in the forepeak can be accessed either through the master cabin or via a deckhead hatch. In the saloon there is an abundance of space thanks to the kitchen which is located forward, allowing the maximum beam to be used for guest relaxation and comfort.

Sail plan

A great sailing yacht, with such great features deserves a rig of the maximum quality which means a carbon fibre mast, with a park avenue boom, carbon fiber rigging and rod staysail. The vang, backstay and mainsail track are all hydraulically adjustable whilst sail handling is accomplished effortlessly via two electric winches. The combination of automation and the high quality carbon fiber sandwich hull ensure a feel of to the yacht perfect harmony with the elements whilst allowing her to be sailed to her very best with only the smallest of a crews.

Twin is the first Vismara lauched together with the new sails Monolithic from Millennium Tecnology Center. Both companies are involved in products for all the clients needed.

Built only with unidirectional spread fibers through the joining of the various layers from corner to corner of the sail, this sail has a 100% balanced structure. Thanks to special machinery specially constructed to spread and plot fibers, Millenium Monolithic technology allows to produce a whole uncut structure for the entire surface. Its thickness is inert polymer free and\or low modulus as taffetas, film, etc. With the Millenium Monolithic Technology and the use of ovens with ceramic and carbon components used with a peculiar vacuum system, it is possible to reach pressures and temperatures never used up till now with sails that have no joints between panels and that are made in a single die cast piece. That’s why Millenium Monolithic membranes are currently the best shapeholding on the market.” Marco Holm, Veleria Marco Holm CEO.

Sailing in complete autonomy

Over the coachroof are set four highly efficient solar panels, each connected via a regulated charger dedicated to ensuring stability of the electrical system and preserving the best state of the gel batteries. Following the enormous success of the Vismara 47 FC, Vismara Marine believes it important to create yachts that can give owners increased autonomy in the consumption of power on board. You have only to enjoy the life on board during the daylight in the bay or sailing downwind without any generator noise to understand the value of this viewpoint.
