Stunning carbon-hulled 54ft fast cruiser from Vismara in 2003. Ultra-stylish, yet ultra-practical and set up for effortless short-handed fast cruising thanks to carbon in-boom furling and extensive use of powered winches and furlers.
Launched in 2003 and hull no.2 of the Vismara V54 semi-custom series, BRIGHELLA was a technological tour-de-force. Much updated since then and benefitting from replacement decks, topsides paint and rig paint in 2012, here highlights are many and include:-
- Carbon rig with inboom furling
- Push button furling for mainsail, genoa and code zero
- Electric winches
- Uprated battery capacity
- Tender garage at stern
- Extensive B&G navigation package
- B&O sound system
The Vismara 54.02 Open R/C is destined for easy sailing and a smaller crew. The construction technology and materials guarantee reliability, excellent seaworthiness and easy manoeuvring as well as light weight, a synonym of safety and performance.
The hull and deck are in carbon fibre and epoxy resin, vacuum laminated and post-cured for 12 hours at 60°, for a displacement in IMS trim of some 12,000 kg. The mast, boom and structural chain-plates in carbon. Manoeuvres are made easier with in-boom reefing. The deck, in vacuum-laid teak, stands out for the open stern and double helm, with integrated columns in composite material.
The clean-cut style of the deck is extreme: all lines are sunken and servo-assisted by 4 electrical winches in the cockpit; the hatch covers are flush deck. The transom opens to allow the storage of a tender; the sliding gangway, which is in carbon, is integrated into the section left of the transom. The compartment opposite the gangway is used to house the showerhead and the shore power socket (220V). The carbon anchor arm tilts back into the bow locker.
All of the composite structural elements, deck, hull and bulkheads have been painted using epoxy fillers and polyurethane paints. The Douglas fir furnishings, with their linear forms and lack of raised cornices have been faced and applied to composite with “jointed” supports, for the purpose of highlighting the difference between the composite structures and the furnishings. The free areas of the carbon sides are left exposed behind the sofas in the dinette and in the cabins.
The interior layout includes a sail locker, fore, a master cabin with bathroom and shower, separated by a glass door, two guest cabins with shared bathroom in the middle, a large dinette opposite the amidships area as well as light and airy thanks to the large, vacuum-glued windows in Lexan. The galley and the course plotting area are on the port and starboard sides, respectively; the galley is faced in steel, as befits the concept of a boat featuring clean-cut lines but with a sporting and practical feel.
