Italian yard Vismara Marine unveils the new VXR5, an evolution of the successful V50 Dragon. The hull, built in glass / carbon sandwich, is made in such a way as to make the boat as light as possible, and therefore more performing both under sail with little wind and under power.
The hull lines of the new Vismara VXR5 maintain the modern shapes, born from the latest boats developed for cruising with the stern lines almost completely immersed to favor gliding in fast navigation, and the motor cruising speed of 10 knots.
The cockpit and the interior of the boat are on the same level, with no ladder. This layout, together with large windows, which give a great brightness to the environment, allow you to look outside at 360 ° and to navigate and live indoors, always “sea view”.
In the cockpit there are two sofas, a sundeck, and a retractable dining table.
Looking inside we find large and very bright spaces: a large dinette divided into two parts: on the left C-shaped sofa with a second swivel dining table with 3 functions, compact with anti-roll edge, open for 6/8 seats and lowered convertible into a bed matrimonial.
On the right side, the kitchen consists of tilting gas burners, double sink, two fridges plus a freezer, oven, large countertop and chart table at the corner towards the bow for internal wheelhouse use.
Continuing forward two cabins: on the left with a single bed and private wardrobe, while on the right with a double bed. Immediately after there is a large service bathroom with shower.
At the far bow is the large master cabin with double bed, double wardrobe and private bathroom with shower. All cabins are ventilated thanks to the various hatches located on deck and an air conditioning system.
The two engine rooms on this boat are present in the cockpit under the sundeck sofas where the two 50hp sail drive engines are installed.
On the transom of the boat there is an opening hatch that houses the tender inside and can also have the function of a swimming platform with swimming ladder and pull-out shower for when you are at anchor.
Two solar panels are also installed on the deckhouse so that you can take advantage of solar energy when sailing and recharge the batteries independently.
A great new feature of the VXR5 is the deck; covered in teak with fluorescent rubber, excellent for night sailing and “always see where you put your feet”.
