Lighter, stiffer, faster– Baltic Yachts’ new long distance cruiser offers all the advantages of carbon composite construction and the chance to personalise an ideal performance cruising yacht.
Baltic Yachts are to build a fast, comfortable, user-friendly 67ft performance cruiser to take full advantage of carbon composite hull construction capitalising on Baltic Yachts’ long experience and expertise in this specialist field. Based on a lightweight hull, using carbon epoxy Sprint laminates and Corecell, the completely new yacht will offer clients a choice of deck design and accommodation lay out.
Key advantages will be a displacement far lighter than that of production sailing yachts in the same market sector, lower rig loads, faster average boat speeds requiring less engine assistance and genuine ease of handling for a couple or family.
Baltic Yachts have been working with Judel/Vrolijk for naval architecture, hull shape and appendages and Design Unlimited for the initial interior styling and design options. The emphasis is on contemporary, up-to-date design with a practical seamanlike theme.
Baltic Yachts have conducted exhaustive market research to help formulate the initial platform for the Baltic 67 Performance Cruiser. Ease of handling, relative simplicity and reliability are crucial so a fully-battened main, which stows easily onto a V boom with lazy jacks, plus a single-line slab reefing system, which can be operated from the cockpit, were prerequisites. Furling systems are optional.
Accommodation is based on four sleeping cabins with a main saloon offering views through topsides portholes and a deck saloon with panoramic views benefiting from a centerline skylight admitting an abundance of natural light.
