Finnish yacht builder Baltic Yachts has launched the 39.6 metre Baltic 117 sailing yacht, which has now been named Perseverance.  The 39.6 metre custom classic sloop, which was built at the yard’s Jakobstad facility, features an advanced composite and is due for delivery later this year.

Perseverance has been constructed as a Baltic 117 Custom Classic and features naval architecture from her builder, Baltic Yachts, whilst her exterior lines come from the drawing boards of Dykstra Naval Architects. The sloop-rigged yacht is constructed of GRP and is equipped with an electric propulsion system, which is powered by a lithium-ion battery bank allowing her to operate in ‘silent mode’.

Accommodation will be for a total of eight guests in a forward owner’s suite and three other double guest cabins. Crew accommodation aft will allow for a staff of six.

This yacht is an advanced composite 117ft (35.8m) Custom Classic sloop from the board of renowned Dutch designers Dykstra Naval Architects.

She has distinctive pilot cutter-style features, including a straight stem, bowsprit, counter stern and deep bulwarks, but a very modern approach to emissions and the environment.

The yacht is designed with an owner’s suite forward and three double guest cabins, with crew accommodation for six arranged aft.

Designed by Dykstra Naval Architects, the Baltic 117 Custom, with her tall bermudan rig, displacement of just over 100 tons and deep bulwarks, looks as though she’ll be a fast and comfortable sailing yacht, ideal for her owner’s global cruising ambitions.

Dykstra Naval Architects describe the yacht as ‘a pilot cutter with timeless elegance’. deVosdeVries design is styling the ‘light and contemporary’ interior using stained oak, dark bog oak trims and ‘industrial chic hardware’.

With an electric propulsion system powered by a lithium ion battery bank this global cruising yacht will be able to operate in ‘silent’ mode for long periods.
