Sold by Grabau International to her current owners in 2019 and then renamed PERKY, she was moved to Torrevieja in Spain where she has since been based.
PERKY ( ex KORENOC, ex L’AVVENTURA) is an evolution of the Vismara 78s, GHIBELLINA, from which she takes her high-level technical content and simple forms. However, she has a more evident sporting vocation, which meant that Vismara yacht design had to achieve an even more sophisticated level of design, aimed at reaching top-level performance.
A good deal of the design has been influenced by the experience of her predecessors, the Super-Baltic 78 and the Baltic 87 Baltic Deck House, the first characterised by her hi-tech content with an eye to achieving maximum performance and the second by technical solutions aimed at achieving sailing comfort. The composite material construction, with hull in carbon and glass and deck covered entirely in carbon, allows a notable saving in weight terms and even better performance, with speeds of up to 12 knots under motor power, but also increased reliability, durability and easy repairs. The deck features a very short deckhouse ending aft of the mast to leave the bridge free. Comfortable living space on deck is also assured by a large cockpit for guests and sunbathing area. The anchor system is on the cutting edge, with the anchor retracting into the bow without retracting arms and without any obstruction on deck.
The stern opens to provide garage space for the 4.2 metre tender. The interiors have been designed to create comfortable areas, guaranteeing privacy between the crew, service and navigation areas and those reserved to the owner and guests. The engine room, amidships, contains all of the systems and machinery to allow for easy inspection. The area for the boat’s owner and guests extends towards the bow, along a passageway to 3 cabins with twin beds The dinette is very large and raised to offer better visibility from the wheelhouse as well as being particularly light, thanks to the 180° side windows in tempered plate glass.
The sail plan includes a cutting-edge Park Avenue boom able to store the Mainsail and simplify sail management for the crew. There are no running backstays and the spreaders are angled, while the Genoa has no overlap and the use of a Gennaker is envisaged.
We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
