The teak deck highlights the typical Vismara design: smooth cabin with ample living space
and coamings together with the double cockpit, the after for the helmsman with two
wheels and the central one for guests.
Hull and deck are built in pre-preg carbon vacuum bagged and cured at 80° with Nomex core, in order to develop an extremely rigid yet light and well insulated structure.
To save weight and give the maximum strength to the boat many of the furniture elements, such as the frontals, or the horizontal shelves of the settees are in sandwich of pre-preg carbon with Nomex core.

AccommodationSLEEPS SIX GUESTS IN THREE CABINS AND TWO CREW IN ONE CABIN
The layout and the general styling of “Mister A” make the boat particularly comfortable and functional. The standard of finish is SUPERB.
The boat is divided into two areas: the crew mess aft and the owner/guests area from amidships forwards. This separation assures mutual privacy, but also takes in consideration the differences between the use of the boat during blue water navigation and in harbour. For this reason there are two galleys, one close to the crew mess and navigation area. The main galley is amidships close to the saloon.
The owners suite is located amidships and provided with two separate single berths with desk and office in between. The saloon is very well lit superbly finished and comfortable for socialising. The two guest cabins are upper and lower berths provided and they are forward preceding the sail locker.
The furniture design utilises a mix of hitech and traditional styling and materials. Cherry wood is used to face the furniture and the bulkheads. Carbon structures of items, such as the entrance ladder are left bare to remind the owner just what a special yacht this is.
The entertainment system in the saloon includes a Linn home theatre Hifi system with 5 speakers and a sub woofer in the dinette and 4 speakers on deck.
Sharp LCD 28" TV.
Both galleys are equipped with:
4 burner cooker
One also has a dishwasher and freezer
