We will be exhibiting at Palma Superyacht Show
25 May 2021
Baltic Yachts will be supporting the recovery of the superyacht industry as it emerges from the pandemic by exhibiting at the Palma Superyacht Show on Stand SY30 from June 3-6. Although there will be restrictions in place, our team will be available to discuss maintenance and upgrade schedules as the superyacht industry re-groups for the first time for more than a year.
Yachts can take advantage of Baltic’s well-established and comprehensive Service and Refit facility based in Palma, Mallorca in the STP shipyard, where all key skills, including advanced composite work, engineering, electrical and PLC upgrading, are available using experienced staff who are specialists in their field.
With workshops within the STP complex, administration offices right next to the shipyard and further storage and workshop space outside the city, the 24-strong Mallorca-based team works alongside Baltic Yachts in Finland, benefitting from almost 50 years of world class yacht building, engineering and design.
Matthew Lester, Baltic Yachts’ Head of After Sales, who leads the highly experienced Service and Refit team, said:
We are here for any yacht built of any material – we welcome any size and we’re not restricted to those built by Baltic. We are well established in Palma and have built a wide network of top-quality specialists able to take on any task. We are here to help you and maintain your yacht in first class condition.
Time for a high voltage upgrade?
Baltic Yachts Service and Refit is currently working on more than 12 projects involving sailing and motor yachts ranging in size from 17m to 60m. Work includes a wide range of skills, including those for upgrading a sailing yacht to a high voltage electrical system including the installation of the first two 38kW M944DVS variable-speed Northern Lights generators which meet new IMO Tier 3 low emissions regulations helping to reduce the yacht’s carbon footprint. It is thought to be the first time a yacht of this type has been upgraded to benefit from a 600volt system.
The advantages of a high voltage electrical system using the latest BMW Lithium-ion battery technology, include dramatically reduced charging times, much longer periods of ‘silent mode’ in which all systems can be used without the need to start a generator (in this case 10 hours) faster, quieter hydraulic pump performance and lower fuel consumption.
Other projects, a number of which are non-Baltic built yachts, include a major refit on a 100ft sailing yacht which will complete this summer; re-plumbing a 57.5m yacht to Lloyds’ classification; composite works on a 28m fast motor yacht; changing rudder bearings on a 26m sailing yacht and electrical upgrades on a 47m sailing yacht.

Baltic Yachts Service and Refit is also carrying out work on 17m and 20m sailing yachts which are preparing for busy summer seasons in the Mediterranean and Baltic.
The team includes experienced sailors who understand the requirements of owners, captains and crew and can quickly assess their needs.
