The basic concept behind the design for the Baltic 175 yacht Pink Gin VI is to improve on the already successful concept of Baltic 152 yacht. Balk Shipyard is looking for more performance from a shape with a timeless silhouette. The boat will have a vertical bow, long overhang and a deep lifting keel. After a thorough CFD/VPP study of different hull shapes, the yard has opted for bow sections that are very close to its racing-cruising designs with very soft runs.

The displacement of 235 tons (light craft) is low for a boat of this size due to the carbon sandwich hull and deck construction. To keep the displacement as low as possible it was decided to go for a lifting keel configuration with a draft of 7.00 m in sailing displacement and a minimum draft of 4.50m.

The sailplan is very generous with a mast height of nearly 67 metres above water level that will guarantee good performance in all conditions. The sailplan has two headstays, one for the big non-overlapping Jib, one for a staysail. The big furling Code Zero will be attached on a fixed bowsprit.

Development of the cockpit area is being shared by Design Unlimited in collaboration with judel/vrolijk. The owner has had a big influence with clear intentions for the use of this space and as a result it will be divided into three zones. Forward will be the large main entertaining cockpit with a free-standing dining area and a variety of seating areas with everyone’s comfort in mind.

The focal point of the main cockpit will be the free-standing bar with access to the all-important galley and crew mess below, so that service and catering can be a seamless experience for the owner and his guests. The helm and navigation area is linked to the impressive aft cockpit which comprises of a cozy breakfast area and two large day beds for sunbathing plus bimini options for those lazy afternoons of relaxation. The deck house with design styling by judel/vrolijk will be timeless without the normal retro touches which can often be seen on this kind of yacht.

The interior layout and styling of superyacht Pink Gin VI have also been entrusted to Design Unlimited. The new yacht will take on all the timeless qualities and eclectic touches of the Pink Gin lifestyle that have been admired by so many. She will have an interior where texture and surface treatment will be of great relevance and select materials used to produce a strikingly provocative interior with elegant cozy touches so that the owner can be comfortable on his world cruising voyages.

One of the many interesting features of the Pink Gin VI yacht is the Master Stateroom which is located forward. This is a large, open-plan suite that incorporates an impressive fold out balcony for the owner to enjoy a space that is both totally private and which allows a wonderfully intimate connection to the sea.

This new Baltic 175 luxury yacht Pink Gin VI will be another statement for the whole team and the final design and styling will reflect the owner’s taste for aesthetics. Balk Shipyard looks forward to the next four exciting years of turning this concept into reality.
