Introducing the new Vismara V58 XR
Grabau International as agents for Vismara Marine is delighted to present the new Vismara V58 XR.
The project stems from the fusion of three iconic Vismara designs, cherry picking particular characteristics from each. From the Vismara V56 Mills ‘TWIN’, her hull form, from the Vismara V52 DS ‘DRAGON’, her overall design concept and interior layout, and from the amazing Vismara V80 ‘LUCA GUIDA’, her ‘inside-outside’ interior thanks to sliding glass above the deckhouse and large side windows.
Hull No.1 of the new V58 XR will be built in cedar and carbon, allowing the boat to be built as light as possible while maintaining the charm and warmth of exposed wood. The salient features of the boat are the cockpit and the interiors that are on the same level, with no stairs to descend; a solution that makes life on board easier and “spacious” by linking the interior with the outside. This arrangement, together with large windows on the deckhouse sides and in the cabins that give great brightness to the environment, provides 360° outward vision from within the saloon and allows her crew to sail and live indoors “immersed” in the light of the sea.
The glass to the front of the deckhouse is completely sliding from bow to stern allowing, in this way, the air to enter the internal environment and to enjoy the open-top cabrio boat in the saloon area. The wheelhouse is located aft in a raised position, and the height of the deckhouse allows better visibility on the outside with a view of the sails not obstructed by the structure of the boat.
The carbon-fibre mast is deck-stepped to make the most of the interior spaces and the rig features a furling boom which allows effortless sail handling to be carried from the two winches installed adjacent to the helms in the aft cockpit.
At the stern of the boat, there is a large opening hatch, providing access to a garage with the capacity to store a 2.80m tender as well as a standup paddleboard, Seabob and an electric foiling surfboard, allowing the Vismara V58 XR to become a true ‘beach club’ when at anchor. Her teak-laid decks are designed to include two large sunbathing areas with cushions positioned both forward and aft.
The new Vismara V58 XR employs some of the very latest technology to ensure class-leading energy efficiency. This includes:-
The ability to cruise under engine at up to 12 knots, thanks to the fitment of twin Yanmar 110hp engines.
Inline generator systems fitted to engines.
Up to 12hrs ‘silent’ usage (including air-conditioning) thanks to the use of lithium batteries and inverters
An air-treatment plant with dehumidification
Photovoltaic panels fitted within the deckhouse roof for recharging of the batteries
The new Vismara V58 XR looks set to tick all the boxes. A sporting hull with ‘racer’ performance, effortless handling under sail, maximum performance under motor, and interior/exterior spaces and outward visibility akin to a motor yacht. The new Vismara V58 XR is a real SUV – XR of the sea!
