BALTIC YACHTS SERVICE & REFIT
SUPPORTING CLIENTS TO ENJOY THEIR YACHTS

Our Service & Refit operation has evolved to become one of the most experienced, trusted and sought after in the yachting industry. Formally established in 2013 in Palma de Mallorca, the epicentre of the Mediterranean yachting scene, it offers a holistic, wide-ranging service benefiting from 50 years of world class yacht building. It recognises owners’ needs for transparent reporting, efficient planning and technical expertise to keep their yachts in first class condition.

Any yacht is welcome, either at Baltic’s new-build facility in Jakobstad, Finland, where a Service & Refit one-stop-shop is available, or at our Palma base, which tends to be the first point of contact.

Located in the STP shipyard, Baltic’s S&R business has benefitted from steady investment since 2013 and now employs more than 30 experts specialising in everything from hydraulics, PLC management and advanced composite work to the highest quality woodworking and electronics skills.

Baltic’s Palma operation is backed by a highly knowledgeable on-site administration team and modern workshops capable of undertaking any project for any yacht.

HOW WE WORK

The Baltic Family spirit and what it stands for lie at the heart of how we run our Service and Refit business. We promote a policy of transparent reporting, honesty and reliability engendered by an ethos which has proved a real success in Finland. Efficient planning and quick, on-time turnarounds are key to our operation. We benefit from a broad internal operational skill base comprising personnel who have had first-hand experience running yachts, including captains and engineers. Our Finland base is renowned for developing new technology which is immediately available to Service & Refit in Palma.

WHO WE ARE

Taking genuine pride in what we do goes hand in hand with the virtues of honesty and reliability which lie at the heart of the Baltic Family. We want clients to rely on us 100% to get complex work done to the highest standard, on time and at the right price. This attitude is born out of how we operate Baltic Yachts in Finland where we encourage the workforce to be open-minded, forward thinking and not be afraid to suggest how things can be done better.

This is supported by an over-arching desire to innovate, to take full advantage of new technology and tailor it to suit the yachtsman’s needs. This open-minded attitude allows us to be flexible and adaptable so that every task we complete is to the highest standard possible.

CHRISTOPHER RE-LAUNCH

Following a seven-month refit at our Jakobstad facility in Finland, the aluminium-hulled, Ron Holland-designed ketch is returned to the water. The yacht underwent a 10-year survey resulting in a detailed schedule of work which included the re-cladding in hardwood of the deck-saloon and coach-roof superstructure

CHRISTOPHER ARRIVES IN JAKOBSTAD

The 46m, 270-ton Christopher arrives in Jakobstad and is lifted to undergo a survey and refit programme. Built in aluminium by Pendennis Shipyard in the UK in 2011, the powerful ketch, which features twin rudders and a centreboard, was re-decked and had her topsides, superstructure and cockpit surfaces re-painted.

ALONGSIDE IN JAKOBSTAD

We are able to offer a lot of alongside dock space in Jakobstad adjacent to our modern new yacht build facility which also functions as a one-stop-shop for Service & Refit. Here Baltic 112 Liara (foreground) is undergoing routine maintenance and Pink Gin (right) was in Finland for an annual survey having sailing some 69,000 miles since her launch in 2017

BALTIC 38DP FAVORITA GETS A RE-VAMP

The 31-year-old Baltic 38 was lifted out in Jakobstad and transported to our facility in Bosund for an extensive six-month long refit which brought her back to almost new. Erkki Laasonnen has owned Favorita for 25 years and decided it was time for new decks, a paint and varnish job plus other upgrades. The yacht is a great example of sustainability and demonstrates how our Service & Refit operation can rejuvenate a yacht

KEEPING BALTIC 175 PINK GIN REFRESHED

The spectacular, Baltic 175 Pink Gin is a regular visitor to both Jakobstad and Palma de Mallorca where she takes advantage of the services offered by our Service and Refit teams. This video shows one of her approaches to Jakobstad on Finland’s spectacular coastline and a welcome ‘home’, following a transatlantic crossing and regatta racing in the Caribbean

M/Y SUNNY DAY, A CLASSIC MODERNISED

Built in timber in Italy in 1989, Sunny Day has remained in the same family since her launch. While her owners wanted the classic motor yacht brought up to date, they also wanted to retain some of the style and ambience they had enjoyed for more than 30 years. Our Service & Refit team took on the challenge and the result is spectacular
