Grabau International is delighted to announce its successful sale of the 2010 Vismara V54 ‘B5’.
Commissioned with a view for family sailing with capabilities to go racing, ‘B5’ boasts many of the typical Vismara features – lightweight construction thanks to a carbon hull which keeps displacement under a remarkable 10 tons and of which 50% is the keel, and easy sailing thanks to integrated systems on board combined with intelligent deck design resulting in a clean deck space with all controls accessible from the helm at the push of a button.
‘B5’ flies a furling Code Zero or gennaker off the wind. The combination of her self-tacking or standard genoa with large single-line reefing mainsail ensures that the yacht can be sailed by a crew of just two when cruising.
The hull lines are typical of Vismara with a slender entry, maximum beam amidships and flat stern emphasised by an almost vertical angle between the bottom and sides. The deck area is an exercise in modern design with straight lines used throughout. Even the guardrail stanchions are polygonal sectioned rather than rounded. The decks are refreshingly free of clutter which also makes her extremely safe at sea.
‘B5’ was extensively refitted in 2017/18/19 by Vismara Marine with the completed works list as follows:- • Lead winglets added to the bulb (designed and manufactured by Vismara. Installed in Malta with supervision of Vismara appointed surveyor) • Polishing and repainting of hull topsides with repainting of style lines • Removal of previous antifouling layers • Redesign of the anchor system for improved operate and ease of use, installing the Delta anchor on the bowsprit. • Complete maintenance cycle and replacement of all service parts of MaxPower retractable bow thruster • Replacement of Forespar seacocks internal elements • Teak deck light sanding and recaulking with light grey rubber • Overhaul of all deck hatches, including hinges replacement • Painting of cockpit table • Polishing and partial painting of cockpit and deck raised areas • Replacement of halyard organiser covers and mast base covers with easily removable ones for improved maintenance • Painting and repair of carbon wheels • New carbon protection for mast instruments added • Painting of bow internal area bilges • Light sanding and painting of interior woodworks keeping the original natural wood feeling. • Full refit of closets and drawer locks • Flooring repaint with sophisticated finish to update the interior feel • Full check/overhaul of fridges and watermaker with parts replacement where necessary • New interior upholstery • Installation of 2 Raymarine 9” touch screen multifunction navigation displays • Installation of 2 Raymarine i70s multifunction instruments at the wheels (including AIS repeater) • Full maintenance of the steering system • Changes to the tender garage door electrical control system to improve functionality • Service batteries replacement (4 x Mastervolt Gel 140Ah) – June 2017 • Engine battery replacement (Varta Gel 100 Ah) – July 2019 • Antal winches complete revision with replacemant of all worn out parts • Hydraulic system maintenance including vang full refit • Running rigging overhaul with replacement of worn out parts and components • Replacement halyard sheaves on mast • Code 0 and genoa furlers maintenance and upgrade • Check on mast, boom and shrouds • New mainsail, code 0 halyards.
