Obi One

Concept

The “obi one” project sees Vismara working in conjuction with Lerouge, and it is an evolution of the well-known Petter 55, for which Vismara took charge of the creation at Petter Quality yachts, Marseille.

The new project and craft, designed and built to measure for an expert customer, who has played an active role in the choice of different technical and aesthetic solutions, is a perfect example of Vismara style, this time transferred to an ocean-going catamaran. Le Rouge was in charge of the hydrodynamics and structural works, while Vismara designed the interiors, the deck plan and the overall styling of the boat.
The concept behind “Obi One” is very similar to that of Vismara’s monohulls. It is a fast sports cruiser with a vacuum glass, epoxy resin and airex sandwich hull with Kevlar reinforcements, while the beams subject to greatest stress are in carbon. The deck is ultra-modern, with a sleek deckhouse, featuring a large glazed part to the front and rear; the cockpit has a large living area and double helm at the sides.

Interiors

Inside, the furnishings are structural, since they are integrated into the structure of the boat. All of the panels on furniture units and floors are built in sandwich board with honeycomb core.
The interior has 4 double cabins with two bathrooms, symmetrically positioned.
The center of the boat has a large saloon with big windows, plus a long, comfortable sofa, separated into dining and relaxation areas. The galley and chart area are opposite the sofa. Outside, aft, is the double helm and sundeck. Columns, aerial masts and davits for the tender have all been specially designed and made in carbon.

Characteristics

The sails and appendages have been developed from very latest in modern ocean-going and racing catamarans and feature retracting drop keels, positioned so as not to get in the way of interior fittings. The masts are all in carbon and include a wing pivoting mast and large roached main as well as fore sail and code zero, just like on modern, fast cruising maxi yachts, for the purpose of making manoeuvres easy with a smaller crew. The installations on board are state of the art, with lithium batteries, computer control of power consumption and integrated navigation, monitoring and coms systems on LCD screens inside an out
