The 44.6 metre custom Baltic 146 sailing superyacht Path has been captured underway for the first time since its delivery in June.
Commissioned by an experienced owner, Path is the third largest yacht built by Baltic by volume. Following successful sea trials off Jakobstad, the sailing superyacht was pictured under sail for the first time, flaunting its dramatic grey and orange livery.
Sporting naval architecture and interior design by the Judel/Vrolijk & Co design studio, the yacht has a 9.45 metre beam and is built in advanced composites. Construction began in March 2019 after it was sold in November 2018 and the yacht is equipped with a lifting keel, reducing the draught to 3.4 metres, and a fixed bowsprit.
Key on-deck features include a solid bimini extending from the large deck saloon, and another bimini shading the two sheering positions. The hard top features 60sqm of solar panels to boost the battery charging power on board and reduce the yacht's carbon footprint. Further aft, the helm position is protected by a dedicated bimini with apertures to provide a good view of the sailplan.
Accommodation is for eight guests in an owner’s suite and three further double guest cabins. The owner's cabin is located amidships and takes advantage of Path's 9.45 metre beam, complete an upper lounge area and a 2.7 metre-long video wall. Seven crew will be accommodated in four aft cabins.
Baltic Yachts’ executive vice president, Henry Hawkins, said: “The build benefitted from excellent teamwork between Baltic and the owner’s representative which contributed to this complex yacht being launched and delivered ahead of time.”
The yacht is also be equipped with twin rudders, a tender well on the foredeck, fold-over anchor system and 550hp main engine.
Path will be available to view at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show.
