Designed in classical style, starting with our design project for the Baltic 56’ “Whisper”, the V50 Fast Cruiser is a high-performance craft for fast cruising, even with a smaller crew. The boat is a “classic”, but there is a host of different innovations in perfect Vismara style: the bow platform that allows easier use of the gennaker; a retracting anchor that comes out from under the hull; the very special retracting keel for a draught of just 1.60 m, but which extends to up to 3.0 m with a telescopic system, without taking up any room in the interior; spray protection hood and “bimini top” for the helmsman, which folds away completely; the rig, halyards and even the genoa sheets are all concealed in the deck; the transom opens to create a bathing platform and access to the tender storage area. The sail plan, using a doubled system of main sail tracks, guarantees easy storage of the sail without outside help. The jib and code zero furlers are mounted below deck. The interior layout might be defined as “symmetrical”. The master cabin, fore, has two beds, wardrobe and bathroom with separate shower. Amidships is the saloon with the chart area and galley at the back. Two cabins with double beds are in the stern, with a central bathroom which both share. It is the position of the bathroom that creates a large area in the dinette. The finishes are completely in classical style, inspired by Baltic Yachts, with teak deck, classical style furnishings in teak with false ceilings and panelling in fabric.
