This fast, easy to handle cruising yacht was successfully launched in July. Designed by Dixon Yacht Design, which has a particular affinity for the requirements of yachts intended for comfortable cruising, the silver-hulled Baltic 85 Custom has shown an impressive turn of speed.
Displacing just 50 tons, light-ship, she’s constructed of an E-Glass outer skin, a carbon inner skin and a foam core with lightweight carbon bulkheads and panels used throughout. A telescopic lifting keel with an 11.39-ton bulb reduces draft to a useful 3m.
Through detailed space planning and a high quality specification, this mini-superyacht has not compromised on comfort. She offers genuinely exciting sailing with ease of handling, which should appeal to the growing number of clients looking for a greater level of simplicity in a superyacht.
The yacht’s accommodation, with clean, modern styling by Mark Whiteley Design, includes a light and airy saloon, a large owner’s suite forward with one twin guest cabin all finished in a beautiful pear wood. Detailed planning has resulted in an unusually large amount of space for the owners and their guests giving the impression below of a much larger yacht.
