New sailing yacht order for Baltic
A custom Baltic 146 sloop has been commissioned for worldwide cruising…
Baltic Yachts has announced a new order to build a custom-designed 44.6m lifting-keel sloop intended for worldwide cruising. With naval architecture by Judel/vrolijk & co, the new yacht will be built in advanced composites using epoxy SPRINT and pre-preg carbon.
The yacht is designed with an owners’ double cabin and three double guest cabins in the mid and forward areas, and will accommodate seven crew in four cabins in the aft quarters.
With a lifting keel reducing draft to just 3.4m, the yacht is designed with twin rudders. Features on deck include a solid bimini extending from the large deck saloon and another separate bimini over the twin steering positions. Other features include a tender well on the foredeck, a fold-over anchor system, a large stern lazarette, captive winches and a 550hp main engine driving a forward-facing pull propeller which can be rotated to avoid the need for a stern thruster.
“This will be the third largest yacht by volume built by Baltic and we are relishing the challenge of working on such an important yacht," comments Baltic Yachts’ CEO Henry Hawkins.
Heading up the owner’s project management will be Sebastian Allebrodt of A2B Maritime Consultants. Production on the new yacht will start in February 2019 and delivery is expected to be mid-summer 2021.
