BALTIC 112 LIARA
MULTI-ROLE SUPERYACHT FOR GLOBAL CRUISING AND RACING
Liara is a genuine multi-role sailing yacht providing a super-comfortable cruising platform with the ability to be transformed quickly for competition with minimal disruption. Her owner was keen to keep preparation time to go sailing to a minimum so emphasis was put on dedicated stowage for running rigging and sails and highly efficient trimming and rig handling systems.
Deep cockpit bulwarks provide excellent safety and comfort and the hard bimini protects occupants from the elements, but can be removed for racing. It is also fitted with a sliding sun roof and provides the perfect link to the spectacular deck saloon and stylish accommodation via curved glass sliding doors.

VERSATILE COCKPIT AND HARD TOP BIMINI
Liara’s large, comfortable cockpit and spectacular full width deck saloon provide the focal point of her accommodation and a seamless transition for inside/outside living in the warm climes for which she is intended. The cockpit, which can be set up for dining, sun bathing and relaxing while sailing, is protected by a stylish hard-top bimini supported by removable posts.
The entire structure can be removed to save weight for racing. The cockpit is devoid of winches and running rigging with all sailing controls positioned aft of the steering positions, making the cockpit a super-safe place to relax while racing or cruising.
RETRACTABLE PROPULSION SYSTEM
Acceleration, speed and manoeuvrability are key for efficient sailing and a competitive edge. Making the underwater surface of the hull as fair as possible by retracting the propeller is one innovative way of achieving this. The latest models feature 360° rotation so that the unit doubles as a stern thruster. With the propeller retracted there is much less drag which equates to more efficient sailing, increased speed and greater manoeuvrability on the racecourse.
COMFORTABLE LIVING AFLOAT
Liara is designed for very comfortable living afloat and the style created by Adam Lay Studios is very natural, calm and inspired by the natural environment of the owner’s home islands.
The interior feels remarkably open and spacious for a yacht of this size thanks to the structural architecture and extensive glazing.
