2008 Vismara V50 Fast Cruiser

Alameda, California


Three year charter with option to purchase!!


From the design desk of Alessandro Vismara and built at the Vismara yard, Lotus (formerly Sbisa and Estemariber) is an outstanding example of the V50 Fast Cruiser series. Classic lines, elegance and European styling in one of the most complete 50ft cruisers you could wish for. For those who enjoy going fast, but with push-button simplicity, ultra-clean lines and the immense practicality of a telescoping keel, she’s unparalleled in providing elegance and grace in a performance package.

From stem to stern she’s been designed and engineered to provide the ultimate in ‘at a touch’ handling, yet maintain her beautiful lines. She’s a sleek ‘Pandora’s Box’ of engineering marvel.  Her carbon sprit and Park Avenue boom make sail handling a breeze – complete with electric mainsail cars, and all electric winches.  Flush decks and a low profile coach roof ensure clean lines.  Jib and Code 0 furlers are below decks with sheets and halyards run aft and below deck.  Her hydraulic telescoping keel provides a keel depth range of 5 to 9 feet to accommodate inshore and deep water passage.

Helming and maneuverability have been carefully considered with twin wood laminated carbon wheels, displays at each helming station, a spray protection hood and bimini top that folds down flush to the deck, and retractable bow thrusters plus a quick windlass retracting anchor with under hull exit complete with anchor locker wash down pumps.

Beautifully finished natural teak furnishings accent the distinctively euro-styled symmetrical interior layout. The forward main cabin features an ensuite head, a double berth and auxiliary berth with lee cloth. Twin aft cabins feature double berths each with a shared central head with private entry from each berth. Storage, shelving and wardrobes are carefully thought out with all cabins having complete privacy. Custom fitted linens and duvet are included for each cabin. Her salon has ample wrap around settee seating, folding dining table with navigation center across from galley  Full stove, refrigeration and double basin stainless sinks along with extensive storage are featured in the galley.  Her flush mounted deck hatches provide copious natural light.

Even her transom amenities keep to a sleek profile with an inset garage for tender storage revealed when the swim platform is down. Custom sunpads and boarding ladder complete the recreation area and she comes with a passerelle for rear boarding.  No stone has been left unturned in incorporating modern amenities and innovation into a truly modern yacht – both above and below deck – with grace, flair and outstanding performance. Lotus is a truly one of a kind luxury performance cruiser.

Lotus is available on three year charter with option to purchase!
