Canova starts her global adventure
22 October 2019
Our latest video shows the beautiful Baltic 142 Canova leaving our Jakobstad yard following successful sea trials.
It’s the beginning of a global adventure, which will see the yacht’s plethora of innovative technology provide improved performance, increased comfort in a seaway, cleaner propulsion and generating systems and a quieter, lighter yacht.
Canova is one of the most technically advanced yachts we have ever built, but her systems are designed for ease of maintenance in remote areas and while under sail her free-wheeling propeller will take the place of conventional generating sets to charge her large bank of Lithium ion batteries.
As she will be undertaking long trans-ocean passages, comfort while under sail will be important to her owner and crew and by deploying her 9m long athwartships DSS foil, her heel angle will be reduced by up to 10 degrees and her pitching motion dampened. The DSS was developed by Infiniti Yachts.
Following sea trials before her departure Canova’s owner said he was delighted with the effect of the foil emphasising that any improvement in performance would be a bonus. Canova’s naval architecture is by Farr Yacht Design and the owner’s project management was led by Mattia Belleri of Fluidsailing.
Canova’s stunning accommodation and superstructure styling are by Lucio Micheletti, who designed the lay out with an amidships, full beam owner’s suite with an angling double berth. The focal point of the accommodation is the full beam deck saloon, which leads via sliding doors to a same-level cockpit.
