Ranging from 25m-43m (85ft-142ft) the new orders have filled the order book at Baltic Yachts.
Baltic Yachts in Finland has signed three orders for new carbon composite performance sailing yachts. Ranging from 25m-43m (85ft-142ft) the new orders have filled the order book at Baltic Yachts as the company prepares to launch 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 said.
Works on these projects will begin shortly at the Finnish shipyard. Some of these projects will see Baltic Yachts working together with naval architect Malcolm McKeon and interior specialists Mark Whiteley and Lucio Micheletti.
Baltic Yachts will be working with naval architects Farr Yacht Design and stylists Lucio Micheletti for the Baltic 142 Custom commissioned by a repeat client keen to cruise at real pace and in complete comfort.
Also in the pipeline is a new Baltic 112 Custom. This project will see Baltic Yachts working for the first time with naval architect Malcolm McKeon.
The project is an all carbon composite multi-role high performance sloop with an interior by Adam Lay Studio, who is also responsible for the Baltic 107 Inukshuk. Sebastian Allebrodt from A2B Maritime Consultants will be the owner’s representative.
Among the key features of this yacht are a lifting, telescopic keel, a removable hardtop over the cockpit and the latest version of Baltic Yachts’ Retractable Propulsion System (RPS). The Baltic RPS has been developed in conjunction with Hundersted.
The third project is for Baltic 85 Custom. This is a Bill Dixon-designed performance cruising yacht. She will be built in E-Glass and carbon to produce a tough, light yacht capable of coastal and long distance cruising anywhere in the world.
“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,” Baltic Yachts says in a statement.
Mark Whiteley Design has been commissioned to create a stylish, comfortable and practical interior designed to accommodate the owner, friends and a professional crew of two. Nigel Ingram from MCM will represent the owner during the construction.
