Vismara V52DS

Starting at
750,000 EUR
approx £646,004 GBP

The first yacht prêt-à-porter. She is a summary of technologies and development over thirty years of design. Born from the Vismara Marine design studio from an idea of Alessandro Vismara, the new V50 immediately found an owner ready to bring to the end the project. In fact, this is the first V50 of a new series of yachts whose BasicForEver constitutes, the number zero.

The Prêt-à-Porter Concept

Vismara believe their yachts should reflect the Prêt-à-Porter principle. A yacht that should be quite literally ‘ready to wear’. Owners should be gifted the opportunity to have exactly the yacht they want, the freedom to go where they want, but should face the minimum of distractions in getting there.

The Vismara Prêt-à-Porter range adopts design solutions developed and refined over 30 years along with the very latest in efficient construction techniques to create easily-customisable fast cruising yachts with a refreshingly clear, quick and simple 4-step ordering process.

Choose your hull colour & deck finish – Bianco Avorio, Grigio Titanio or Blu Navy hull colours and Bianco Avorio or Burma Teak deck finishes

Choose your cabin layout – 4 two-cabin configurations and 9 three-cabin configurations

Choose your interior finish – Paint & Carbon Fibre or Wood & Carbon Fibre

Choose your equipment configuration – ‘Easy Sailing’, ‘Altura’ or ‘Luxury’

And that’s it… With many hundreds of possible variations*, the Vismara owner will receive their yacht ready to sail away from the dock, unique to their desires, complete with all necessary equipment.


The Vismara V52DS Prêt-à-Porter (formerly called Vismara V50) represents a ‘clean sheet’ approach to modern cruising yacht design. A yacht designed to perform equally well crossing oceans as sailing around the bay. A yacht designed to offer high levels of performance yet with an ultimate sense of security. A yacht that is supremely practical in every respect.

Aft of the broad flush forward sundeck area, the raised saloon profile allows unparalleled 360 degree panoramic vision from the saloon and galley areas, with same level easy access to the deep and secure cockpit. The cockpit is a masterclass in ergonomic design with two levels of seating to each side and excellent overheard protection from the aft extension of carbon fibre saloon top. At the aft end of the cockpit is a raised deck area incorporating an ingenious fold-out passarelle with tender garage beneath – both essentials for modern-day cruising.

Accommodation is forward of the raised saloon and is available in any one of thirteen layouts comprising of two or three sleeping cabins and two bathrooms. Primary cabin partitions become part of the laminated hull structure, resulting in superior noise insulation between cabin areas and a far stiffer overall hull structure. Carbon fibre is used extensively to reinforce the V52DS hull & deck structure without adding unwanted weight.

The powerful sloop rig is effortlessly controlled using reliable in-boom furling – a system that allows for a highly efficient mainsail shape with a lower centre of gravity compared with in-mast systems.

Perhaps the most unique highlight of the Vismara V52DS Prêt-à-Porter is the twin engine configuration. Adopting two outboard-positioned engines affords the V50 many advantages including:

* Redundancy – The V52DS is just as happy cruising under one or both engines.

* Stability – Operating both engines can help to counter reduce rolling motion in a heavy sea due to the rotational effect of the propellers.

* Comfort – Siting the engines forward and outboard of the rudder reduces disturbance over the rudder blade resulting in improved helm feel and less vibration.

* Access – Both engines are very easily accessible from the cockpit.

* Performance – Twin engines offer potential for double figure speeds.

* Manoeuvrability – The V52DS can turn on the spot using engines alone.

* Efficiency – Twin engines allow specification of smaller units performing more efficiently under load.

* Cost – Smaller engines cost less to maintain whilst alternating engine usage can also reduce hours run and associated service costs.

Construction Overview

The entire construction is made of “sandwich”, using E-glass multiaxial fiber and epoxy sandwich. Structural reinforcements are made in carbon fibre around stress points and include chainplate reinforcements, ring frame supports for the rig and the sweeping overhang of the coachroof which is designed to support the load of the mainsheet and a crew member.

The Vismara V52DS Prêt-à-porter is still pure Vismara in her DNA. The hull allows excellent performance in light winds, whilst offering great ease of handling and safety in the most demanding of conditions. This ease of handling is made possible by logical choices in deck equipment such as inboom mainsail furling, under-deck genoa furling, strong rod rigging and in-boom mainsail furling, all easily controlled by below-deck lines led aft to the cockpit.
