OBI ONE is born from a project developed over the years from a qualified team of professionals guided from the owner whose wish was building the ultimate fast cruising lightweight catamaran.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Commissioned in 2007 by an experienced owner who selected the best professionals to set up a team able to build a performance cruising catamaran with evergreen characteristics and high technologies: Erik Lerouge Yacht Design for the project, Vismara Yacht Design for the interior project, Trimarine for build and the supervision of the construction.
Launched in 2009, OBI ONE is a particularly highly specified custom high performance cruising catamaran equipped as a turnkey solution for fast offshore sailing:
OBI ONE was commissioned chosen the best players in the market combining the best Italians and French skills. From the most famous French designes of fast ocean cruisers catamarans of that time, Eirk Lerouge, to Trimarine as a builder, a company that has to his credit the construction of several America's and VOR cup boats. Vismara Yacht Design was in charge of the interior design with the aim to create a modern, iconic and minimalistic boat built for fast cruising.
All this made it possible to create a multihull capable of combining the style and comfort of a cruising boat and the performance of a racing catamaran:
The construction of the hulls was carried out in vacuum infusion with epoxy resin using glass skins reinforced with unidirectional carbon, the living work is made with Kevlar leathers.
The realization of the centre construction, of the internal structures, is also vacuum-packed; appendages and crossbars are in carbon.
The rotating mast is by Lorima who is a world leading manufacturer of multihull shafts. They armed over 70% of the fleet of large oceanic multihulls. Made of high modulus carbon sandwich (M40J). It is 24 m high.
The boat is equipped with North Sails wardrobe. The Incidence sails wardrobe is also available.
The interior decoration and design has been treated with great attention to weight saving, a particularly important factor in a multihull to ensure good performance. Still with a view to having no parasitic weights, the internal surfaces have no coating and the structures are visible.
All these attentions, the materials used, the structural furnishings and the racer's water lines have allowed us to achieve an excellent result in terms of performances, habitability, style.
The “Obi one” project sees Vismara working in conjuction with Lerouge, and it is an evolution of the well-known Petter 55, for which Vismara took charge of the creation at Petter Quality yachts, Marseille.
The new project and craft, designed and built to measure for an expert customer, who has played an active role in the choice of different technical and aesthetic solutions, is a perfect example of Vismara style, this time transferred to an ocean-going catamaran. Le Rouge was in charge of the hydrodynamics and structural works, while Vismara designed the interiors, the deck plan and the overall styling of the boat. The concept behind “Obi One” is very similar to that of Vismara’s monohulls. It is a fast sports cruiser with a vacuum glass, epoxy resin and airex sandwich hull with Kevlar reinforcements, while the beams subject to greatest stress are in carbon. The deck is ultra-modern, with a sleek deckhouse, featuring a large glazed part to the front and rear; the cockpit has a large living area and double helm at the sides.
