M55 VERA is flagman yacht in the concept line of semi-classic pilothouse cruiser for long range cruising with small crew. The boat will be built with practical and minimalist concept as the base. It means that boat will have the simple neo-classic interior with painted surfaces and minimal teak wood trimming, the deck will be painted or covered with non-skid  cover for easy maintenance.

Aluminium welded hull can be with bare metal surface or painted up to choice of colours or covered with vinyl.  The deck is composite, made of foam sandwich with vacuum infusion or wood/epoxy.

The equipment will be basic and simple, but enough for sailors to make safe cruising with minimal problems for repair or service, in opposite to modern over-equipped yachts.

Practical ketch rig, central cockpit, spasious aft and forward cabins with sparate toilet and shower, moderate draft, skeg protected rudder and propeller, built-in (no bolts) keel, no genoa furlers, no generator (only solar and wind charging), all for simple and and reliable cruising worldwide. This yacht will be built by Dutch specialists upon order and final specification.
