by Risa Merl
Nakupenda, seen in her design renderings above, is a semi-custom sailing luxury yacht built for long range sailing by the Italian yacht builder Vismara, based in Viareggio, Tuscany. The Vismara V80 Easy Cruising yacht was constructed in carbon fibreglass and episodic resin.
With a 5.8 metre beam, Nakupenda boasts a teak bridge and a large flybridge that is protected by a sprayhood. She has a sail plan of 318 square metres and a 3.2 metre draught.
Her spacious, comfortable interior has a stern-side lounge with views of the ocean and an on-deck saloon with panoramic side windows and Vismara custom curved windows aft. She accommodates 10 guests in comfortable cabins installed with Vismara custom entertainment systems. There is also accommodation for two crew.
With a displacement of only 36,000 kilograms, Nakupenda was designed for easy sailing. She is equipped with Vismotica integrated control systems for easily controlling and monitoring her utilities while optimising power usage. She is powered by a Yanmar 240hp engine and features two cockpits, including a raised central cockpit.
