BALTIC 67PC-03 FREEDOM
The judel/vrolijk-designed Baltic 67PC was conceived as a robust, fast, easy to handle long distance cruising yacht able to sail well in light to medium airs downwind conditions and maintain high daily mileage averages without recourse to the engine.
The owner of the third 67PC is keen to sail short-handed, so in addition to the 67’s easy handling characteristics there is a handheld remote-control unit which will enable him to trim sails and manoeuvre under power from anywhere aboard the yacht.
A hard-top bimini fitted with solar panels, diesel-electric propulsion and battery charging via hyrdogeneration using the free-wheeling propeller when sailing are among the differences to hull numbers one and two.
The commission for Baltic 67PC-03, the latest example of this stylish performance cruiser, is another illustration of how varied a specification is possible in a yacht based on the same hull mould.

Freedom offers short-handed touch button cruising.
Watch the video showing her anchor system that can be operated not only from the windlass control but also from the helm station. Freedom is also equipped with a wireless remote control system that can operate the propeller and thrusters from anywhere on the yacht ensuring smooth anchoring and docking.
In addition to Freedom’s easy handling characteristics, she is equipped with an electric jet tender and iPhone remote-control app which among other functions enables the stern tender garage door/swim platform to be opened and the hydraulic pasarelle deployed. The pasarelle works as a gangway when stern-to and, when required, as a small electric crane to lift the yacht’s tender from the water onto the stern platform. It then stows the dinghy by moving it forward into its garage.
Freedom’s most distinctive feature externally is her hardtop cockpit bimini. It serves many purposes including a load-bearing area for the mainsheet track, an internal ‘dashboard’ for all sailing instrumentation, making them extremely easy to read from both wheels, a landing for a large array of solar panels and protection for the cockpit table and seating.
Baltic 67 Performance Cruiser, “Freedom” features a stunning, unusually open accommodation. Design Unlimited has taken full advantage of the fact that there are only three sleeping cabins, a large owner’s double suite forward and two cabins aft. In between, everything is open plan with the saloon, large galley and navigation-cum-office merging into one.
Baltic 67 Performance Cruiser 'Freedom' was successfully launched at our dockside facilities in Jakobstad.
