Baltic Yachts will soon be building three new carbon composite performance sailing yachts, a 43-metre, 34-metre and 26-metre projects, right while preparing the launch of Pink Gin VI, the biggest carbon composite sloop in the world.
Baltic Yachts CEO Henry Hawkins said that in tough market conditions over recent months the company had appealed to a number of clients. “This success is a result of a dedicated Baltic Yachts team effort building on our expertise in the custom sailing yacht arena,” he commented.
Baltic 142 Custom
The Baltic 142 Custom, being developed for a repeat client of Baltic Yachts’, features naval architecture by Farr Yacht Design and styling by Lucio Micheletti. Carefully engineered, this high-performance lightweight carbon composite sailing yacht will be easily driven and will provide comfortable long-distance voyages to her owner.
Baltic 112 Custom
The Baltic 112 sloop is yet another performance yacht, designed by naval architect Malcolm McKeon and featuring interior design by Adam Lay Studio (who had already been collaborating with Baltic Yachts for the award winning Baltic 107, Inukshuk).
Baltic Yachts’ well-honed composite construction methods using carbon skins, foam and Nomex cores will help creating the stiffest, lightest, strongest hull and deck structures. The yacht will provide a luxurious cruising platform, but will also be a potent regatta participant.
Among the key features of this yacht are a lifting, telescopic keel, the latest version of Baltic Yachts’ Retractable Propulsion System (RPS), developed in conjunction with Hundersted, and a removable hardtop over the cockpit.
Baltic 85 Custom
The last of the three vessels whose construction will start this year is the custom Baltic 85 lightweight performance cruising yacht.
Designed by Bill Dixon, the e-glass and carbon fibre 26-metre project is developed for long-range cruises in full comfort. With her masthead sailplan and she will be an easy yacht to sail and with her telescopic lifting keel reducing draft to just 2.95m she will be able to access many anchorages. The yacht’s interior will be designed by Mark Whiteley.
