5 May 2021By Miranda Blazeby

The 44.6 metre custom Baltic 146 sailing superyacht Path has hit the water for the first time. It comes after the yacht was transferred from Baltic Yachts' Bosund facility to its Jakobstad yard, where it was launched today (May 5). 

Commissioned by an experienced owner, Path is the third largest yacht built by Baltic by volume. Construction on the yacht began in March 2019 after it was sold in November 2018. When complete, the sailing superyacht will be equipped with a lifting keel, reducing the draught to 3.4 metres.

Sporting naval architecture and interior design by the Judel/Vrolijk & Co design studio, the yacht will have a 9.35 metre beam and will be built in advanced composites.

Key on-deck features include a solid bimini extending from the large deck saloon, and another bimini shading the two sheering positions. The yacht will also be equipped with twin rudders, a tender well on the foredeck, fold-over anchor system and 550hp main engine.

Accommodation will be for eight guests in an owner’s double cabin and three further double guest cabins. Seven crew will be accommodated in four aft cabins.

Designer Rolf Vrolijk previously said, “This is a great opportunity to further develop the high performance, multi-role superyacht for which our design studio and Baltic Yachts have become renowned.”
