About

This project is based on the V.46 2005 design and it is an evolution of the Vismara 46 “Belladonna” and “Dragon” – the new IRC for racing/cruising use.

The yacht

In particular, Vismara has developed different types of hull, appendage and sail plan, and worked on the construction systems, layout of the interiors, weight distribution, deck geometries and the overall conceptualisation of the project and of the necessary optimisation for racing in our area. From a design viewpoint, the boat is very specific and it is completely different from IMS craft or from the boats typically built by X Yachts/ Grand Soleil: • the hull has a far more powerful stern profile - featuring projections and edges similar to those of the modern Volvo 70 craft - which increase dynamic waterline length; • higher sides on the water, fore and aft, for IRC minimum measurement of dynamic waterline length; • the sail plan has a notable surface area, totalling 115 sq m; • craft stability is very high, with a 3600 kg blade keel without torpedo-shaped bulb to reduce wetted surface and lurching; • the construction is in state-of-the-art composites with unidirectional glass and carbon, vacuum laminated with epoxy resin to guarantee maximum lightness and weight concentration.

Interiors

However, this craft was not designed with just racing in mind, but, interpreting I.R.C. regulations and philosophy, it has been fitted out with 3 comfortable cabins, two of which are double, in the stern, with a shared bathroom in the centre, under the entrance and a large master cabin with twin beds and a bathroom in the bow. The layout is in the typically symmetrical style of Vismara and has doors and convertible compartments for totally open interior spaces, creating a genuine “Loft“. The styling of the high-tech fittings, made in painted composites, includes areas with exposed carbon and coloured plastics in such a way that structural elements are divided from fittings while keeping all furnishings with a structural function self-supporting to achieve the maximum lightness and rigidity in the hull. The graphics and colours of this craft are the work of architect, Guido Spadolini, who is also the owner.
