“MisterA” is the result of a team work involving: Vismara Yacht Design as concept, interior and deck designer and in charge for general coordination, Farr Yacht Design for the naval architecture design of the hull, decks and appendages and structures, SP Technology for the structures analysis, Southern Spar for the very innovative wing mast and rigging, studied for the aerodynamics by ICAD (International Consortium for Advanced Design) from Florence University. It is difficult to locate this project inside a pre-existing category, easier to guess that she will be the first of a new sailing yachts family: FAST OCEAN CRUISER.The soul of “MisterA” is the technology as the way to have a performance Maxi, able to face any kind of navigation, ocean also, with comfort and safety.
Mister A is offered exclusively by Farr Yacht Sales at a price of €1,850,000 euro. Contact Ian Gordon for more information.

Hull / Deck Construction Details
The hull and deck are built in carbon pre-preg vacuum bagged and cured at 80° with Nomex core, in order to develop an extremely rigid yet light and well-insulated structure. The composite material becomes part of the furniture; in fact in order to save weight and give the maximum strength to the boat, many of the furniture’s elements, such as the frontals, or the horizontal shelves of the settees are in sandwich of pre-preg carbon with Nomex core.
Carbon Fiber – Nomex Composite
The layout and the general styling of “MisterA” make the boat particularly comfortable and functional. The boat is divided into two areas: the crew cabins aft and the owner/guests area mid-ship forward. This separation assures mutual privacy, but also takes into consideration the differences between the use of the boat during the blue water navigation and casual sailing. For this reason there are two galleys, one close to the crew cabins (very functional in navigation) and a forward galley, mid-ship close to the saloon, more suitable for entertaining.The master stateroom is located amidship and provided with two separate single berths hull-side divided by the owner desk office. The saloon is very well lit both by natural and artificially lighting, very carefully finished and comfortable for the social life. The two guest cabins located forward of the main saloon provide upper and lower berths.The furniture design and construction materials play an integral part in the interior styling by alternating exotics materials and traditional shapes. The traditional cherry veneers of the furniture and bulkheads contrast and compliment the high-tech materials of the yacht’s structure; the carbon fiber structures of the visible hull surfaces and companionway entrance ladder remind you of the high-tech nature of this luxury yacht.

The teak deck shows the typical Vismara design: smooth cabin with ample living space and coamings together with the double cockpit. The aft cockpit, for the helmsman, with two wheels and a central cockpit for guest and entertaining. The stern is equipped with a garage for the dinghy and for general storage use and the bow operates hydraulically to access the anchor and windlass.

Rig & Rigging
The rotating wing mast project was a cooperation of Vismara Yacht Design, ICAD, Florence, Italy and Farr Design with the goal to reach the best section for efficient driving force at minimum heel angles in upwind conditions capable with the rotation of the mast.The mast section has a profile with a chord length of 650 mm on a fractional mast and the sail plan includes a fractional cruising spinnaker as well as a very powerful masthead spinnaker for use in the Maxi-yacht circuit races. The mast is laminated with a mixture of pre.preg Carbon of standard and hi-modulus with autoclave at 3 bar pressure and cured under 120°C. The mast structure has been designed for use without a backstay up to 22 knots of true wind. The backstay is recommended in extreme weather conditions or for long navigations to depower the Mainsail or during the races in order to compensate the bending of the mast due to the spinnaker loads.The engineering of the mast and rigging incorporates solutions normally utilized on Open-class yachts and includes composite PBO rigging, including the headstay. The hydraulic furler for the Genoa is recessed under deck and equipped with a carbon-foil aerodynamic profile forestay.The hydraulic mast controls for rotating the wing mast are led to the wheel steering pedestals, as are the furling controls for the Genoa.
