Baltic Yachts at the Palma Superyacht Village 2022
21 April 2022
Expansion for Baltic Yachts’ Service & Refit
The strategic importance of Baltic Yachts’ Service & Refit operation in Palma de Mallorca was strengthened recently as a new 800m² workshop facility and warehousing were opened and its expanding 26-strong workforce marked almost a decade of active presence in the Mediterranean’s superyacht hub.
Our Service & Refit team, supported by Sales and Marketing will be on hand at the Palma Superyacht Village 2022, the re-vamped superyacht show forming part of the Palma International Boat Show.
The show will run from 28 April – 1 May in the Moll Vell port area, a short walk from the iconic old city centre. Visitors are welcome on Baltic Yachts’ Service & Refit Stand Number SY30 to discuss their needs and we look forward to seeing you!
Also on show in the Superyacht Village will be the spectacular Baltic 112 Path and Baltic 175 Pink Gin, both exhibited by Fraser. Show attendees can arrange to visit these yachts by making an appointment at the Fraser stand SY15, or contacting the broker via its website www.fraseryachts.com
The presence in Palma of Baltic Yachts’ Service & Refit, under the guidance of Matthew Lester, is seen as crucial for future development as increasing numbers of yachts demand high quality service, refits and future-proofing, backed by the unmatched reputation Baltic Yachts enjoys.
Situated in the STP shipyard, Baltic Yachts’ Service & Refit has expanded its local infrastructure which now comprises dedicated workshops and a new warehouse inside the shipyard itself, administration offices directly outside STP’s gates and a new 800m² multi-department workshop facility in the Son Castillo area of the city.
“The strengthening of our infrastructure in Palma will allow us to further develop what we can offer in the service and refit sector to the increasing number of yachts looking for really efficient project management, transparency and fast turnarounds,” said Matthew Lester.

Baltic Yachts’ Service & Refit works closely with the yard in Finland which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year and constantly feeds the Palma base with expertise, personnel and new technology. Key to the Palma operation’s success is the broad internal skill base formed in part by captains and engineers who have first-hand experience aboard large yachts.
Current ongoing projects include a refit on the Swan 115 Jasi, the fitting of a new hardtop bimini for the Baltic 175 Pink Gin and a major refit on a Baltic 43 which is about to begin its first season under new ownership.
Update from the yard
The advanced composite hull of the Baltic 110 Custom is released from its mould
Meanwhile, back in Finland work is continuing apace on a number of projects including the Baltic 110 Custom, the hull of which has just been released from its mould, and the Baltic 67PC-03 which has been trucked from its main build site at Bosund to Baltic’s waterside facility in Jakobstad in readiness for launching and sea trials this spring and summer.
Work also continues on the ultra-lightweight Baltic 111 Custom which has been described as one of the most extreme projects that Baltic has undertaken.
