Baltic Yachts has started work on a new project to build a 107-foot fast cruising yacht in lightweight carbon composite construction. The contract was signed this spring and delivery will take place in 2013. Baltic 107ft sailing yacht´s interior will come from Adam Lay, designing a very modern, elegant interior using oak as the primary wood. As Naval Architect, a successful German Frers design office was chosen again.
The owner is a passionate sailor who enjoys sailing in hot climates and the Caribbean in particular, but also cruising up the cooler North American coast. While this yacht will be very high performance, its prime purpose is fast, efficient and comfortable cruising.
Nigel Ingram of MCM will be the project manager, with Mark von Drashek appointed as yacht manager. Baltic Yachts’ North American representative, George Bourgoignie, who works closely with the owner, will also be involved throughout the project.
Following the success of the ‘split mould’ construction of the sailing yacht Baltic 83, Baltic Yachts will be applying the same process to the 107 yacht. They will build a port and starboard side female CNC mould, both of which will incorporate the transom and the deck. The ability to install interior items more efficiently, and the fact that you can always work from floor level rather than walk up and down steps all the time – all these things help shorten construction time significantly. This will help Baltic Yachts meet its target of a delivery date of summer 2013.
With shallow draft but also comfortable interior living both priorities, the sailing yacht 107 will be fitted with a telescopic keel so as not to impinge on the saloon area. The carbon rig will be supported by carbon fibre rigging, one example of the high performance aspirations of this yacht.
