Ganzuria (ex Calliope)


The Vismara 42’ has taken the design and technology of the Vismara 45’ and 50’ fast cruiser designs and made them its own, together with the top performance of a design project such as the QQ7, Vismara 42’, from which it takes the hull form and deck.

The hull has been optimised to fall in with the latest trends, meaning comfort and performance. Stern exits are tight and low on the water, in expectation of planing speeds, even when sailing under engine power. The gentle passage over the waves is guaranteed by slimmer bow sections and a maximum beam that has been set further back. Unidirectional E glass fabrics and epoxy resins have been used in the construction, with carbon reinforcements for floors and halyards, vacuum impregnated at 0.65 atm and post-cured at 60 degrees for 12 hours on male moulds. The sail plan is next-generation with generously sized mainsail and jib at 110%, code 0 and gennaker. The theme of the project is the concept of “fast and easy sailing”, leading to a deck plan which is extremely “clean“ and simple, where all of the rig runs under the deck inside ducting, sunk into the sandwich board, and is sent to the stern to the only two electrical winches near the helm station. In fact, from this position it is possible to manoeuvre the halyards and the genoa sheet, while the mainsail, which is fixed tack, is adjusted via a “Magic Trim” situated inside the boom.


The deck, which has flush deck hatches, has an open stern and double helm with fully integrated columns in composite material. While underway, the carbon gangway is installed in the stern as a bench for the helmsman. The system used for the anchor, which comes out under the hull, is an evolution of the systems already in used on the Vismara 78’ and Baltic 66’, but optimised for smaller craft, with greater reliability and simpler use. The wooden furniture units, with no raised cornices have been fitted to the composite with “joint” supports in order to highlight the difference between the structure in composite and the furnishing elements. The styling of the cabinetry and the accessories is linear and modern. The layout includes a master cabin, aft, with bathroom, a dinette amidships, and a galley and course plotting area that are both linear and symmetrical. The engine room is large and easily inspected; it is situated amidships and has excellent soundproofing. The master cabin is in the bow, which also houses a large sail locker containing the anchor system.
