Baltic begins construction of sailing yacht Pink Gin VI
by Raphael Montigneaux
We already announced this project in our latest Global Order Book, and now it becomes a reality. Built in carbon-sandwich, this impressive sloop is designed by Judel/Vrolijk & Co and will feature a vertical bow with bowsprit, a lifting keel with a draft from 4.5m to 7m, and a mast of 67 metres.
The cockpit was designed in cooperation with interior designer, Design Unlimited, and the owner. It is divided into three zones, one with a freestanding dining area with direct access to the galley, one for the navigation area and one for relaxation set aft.
The interior will accommodate 14 guests in seven cabins including a full-beam owner suite forward with a private side balcony, a detail rarely seen on a sailing yacht.
With Pink Gin VI, Baltic Yachts has currently four projects under construction. This is very good news for the Finnish yard, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Pink Gin VI is scheduled for 2017.
