Baltic Yachts Rendezvous

“Sail together, stay together”

Jakobstad 30.6 – 2.7.2017

WELCOME TO FINLAND AND BALTIC YACHTS

We are delighted to be able to announce the Baltic Yachts Rendezvous 2017, which will be held from June 30th to July 2nd, at our waterfront facility in the beautiful surroundings of Jakobstad, Finland.

We’ve chosen Jakobstad because the Rendezvous will not only coincide with the launch of the world’s largest carbon fibre sloop, the Baltic 175 Pink Gin VI, but also provide Baltic owners with an opportunity to meet the people who built her and to look at the yard in which our yachts are built.  This is a fantastic chance for the Baltic Family to get together and enjoy each other’s company in a relaxed environment.

Owners, friends and family will have the opportunity to enjoy the long mid-summer days and the outstanding natural beauty of Finland’s west coast with us, as well as familiarise themselves with our latest projects and building practices.

Behind every good yacht there’s a great support team helping Baltic owners keep their yachts up to date with top quality service and repairs. The Rendezvous will provide a chance to meet the team behind our expanding Baltic Yachts Service & Refit department.

We very much look forward to seeing the Baltic Family gathered in Jakobstad next summer to spend a few days with friends and family.
