Elegant styling and a good compromise on hull volume by todays standards. Freeboard not excessive, nice large aft cockpit with drop down transom, interesting layouts and the Open 60 style pilot house still looks unique

The VR yachts website still has 2 pages with full details (see under "VR54" and then link to images) - can't yet post web links here & full size images as need 10 posts !
Yes, expensive no doubt with a beautiful interior. 15 years after the boat still looks slick:









Already a twin wheel design with the winches at easy reach of the helmsman
