Baltic Yachts has announced the signing of a new order for a 39.6m Baltic 130 high-performance cruising yacht, due for delivery in summer 2016. Overall styling, deck and interior design is the work of Nauta Design, with hull lines from Reichel Pugh Yacht Design. The project, managed by Nigel Ingram of MCM, will begin work in September 2014.

Made from carbon sandwich coinstruction, the yacht will be equipped with a retractable propulsion system and lifting keel. The Baltic 130 will have a plumb bow and a wide stern combined with a flush deck to fulfil the owner’s wishes as a passionate regatta sailor. The interior will see an owner forward layout with a saloon, galley and an additional five cabins, two for guests and three for crew. 

To date the yard has delivered nine fully custom yachts above 30m built in carbon composite with the focus on comfortable cruising combined with high performance and low weight and this new order is no exception. This year Baltic Yachts is delivering two new builds, a 108 and 116 footer, along with the relaunch of Nariida, the 105 ft Wally that has been in for a refit this past winter. In production Baltic Yachts have a 115 and a 175 foot project alongside this new 130 footer and the Lifecycle Service department projects.
