With naval architecture by Farr Yacht Design, final styling by Lucio Micheletti and overall engineering by Baltic Yachts, the yacht will benefit from advanced carbon sandwich construction. The new yacht is planned for delivery in spring 2019.
The Baltic 142 Custom combines timeless, elegant looks with dramatic superstructure styling and a modern hull shape. Features include a plumb bow and maximum beam carried well aft to enhance performance and provide useful hull volume. The accommodation comprises a large amidships owner’s cabin to ensure maximum comfort while underway, an upper saloon with direct access to the cockpit and an additional six cabins, three for guests forward and three for crew aft.
The final phase of mould tooling for this Farr Yacht Design performance cruiser was completed in the summer and hull lamination in pre-preg carbon is well advanced.
Project manager Sören Jansson said that apart from the 9m long Dynamic Stability System foil being built into the yacht, the diesel electric propulsion system is also a key feature, the machinery room for which is being built in modular from outside the yacht.
“This not only enables us to gain some time in the overall build schedule but also allows the workers easier access for speed and accuracy” said Sören.
The 142 will step a Rondal carbon rig, be fitted with in-boom furling, set a square top main and to gain full benefit from the keel in the up position (draft 3.8m), is designed with twin rudders. The yacht is scheduled to launch in Spring 2019
