BALTIC 175 RAVENGER – REFIT
OPTIMISED FOR PERFORMANCE ORIENTATED SAILING

Originally launched in 2017, the largest full carbon composite sloop in the world Baltic 175 Ravenger (originally named Pink Gin VI) has undergone a 9-month refit during 2023-2024 with streamlined exterior styling by the owner’s team including Finnish designer Jarkko Jämsén. Refit works included major upgrades to her rig, sailplan and sailing systems, a complete interior restyle by Design Unlimited, and some significant enhancements to her already world class levels of onboard comfort.

Previously conceived purely as a cruiser, Ravenger has hardly ever been raced but that is quite likely to change in the near future. Her new owner acquired and transformed the 54-metre sloop after seeing great potential to boost her already impressive performance – she regularly achieved 20 knots-plus in cruising mode – and to optimise her extensively for more performance orientated sailing.

  • Update to her rig, sails, and sailing systems for a more powerful sailplan
  • Headstay replaced and running backstays fitted with deflector
  • Modification of bow, bowsprit extended by 1.5m
  • New winches for faster line speeds and weight saving
  • New styling for the hardtop bimini
  • Repainted and new bespoke helm pedestals with an additional bimini above
  • Reconfiguring the yacht’s two-level saloon
  • Changing the finish of surfaces throughout all guest areas including the master cabin
  • New cabinets, ceiling panels, bookshelves, floorboards and more

INTERIOR RENDERINGS

The interior refit included a reconfiguring of the yacht’s two-level saloon, replacing the piano area with a breakfast bar, and changing the finish of surfaces throughout all guest areas including the master cabin. Dark stained oak is now prominent and she has new cabinets, ceiling panels, bookshelves, floorboards and more. The stand-out feature of her original design and construction, the large fold-out balcony platforms in the saloon and owner’s cabin – a world first in a sailing superyacht – have been preserved.

The refit works were led by two of Baltic Yachts’ senior project managers, Mikael Nyberg and Tommy Johansson. ‘Another focus of this project is enhancing her noise reduction solutions ensuring they remain leading edge by implementing all the knowledge we have gained in recent projects,’ Tommy explains. ‘She was state of the art then, but there have been some big developments since she was delivered. For example, we have made a new bedding mount for the entire interior and installed a complete new fastening system for ceiling panels.’
