Extensively refitted and remodelled example of the fast lightweight cruiser racer from Vismara. Mind-boggling value for money with absolutely no expense spared plus enough sails to fuel an America’s Cup campaign!



With this project, the Vismara Yacht Design has created a fast hull and loose with the IMS Regulations, which give satisfaction and results in IRC regattas, open and LOA. The disengaging from IMS regulation has enabled greater internal volume and cockpit; as well as increased performance, cruising and racing. The usability of this 45 'Racer / Cruiser also cruising is ultimately ensured not only by the livability of the interior, but also the expected amenities, such as heating in all rooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 large cabins, etc


The deck is equipped for racing with the german mainsheet system recessed from the base of the boom up to 2 dedicated winches in the cockpit. The cockpit is very large, functional and ergonomic. The aft bench (also carbon), once removed, also serves as a walkway. The stern is open and the double steering, besides being much more practical in navigation (to better observe the bow sails), allows a much more easy access to the edge, with respect to the single wheel boats. The sail plan is evident for a carbon mast (high density), with 2 sets of swept back spreaders.
