First look: inside 34m Baltic custom sailing yacht Zemi

8 January 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Baltic Yachts has offered a first look inside its 33.5-metre sailing yacht Zemi following her delivery in August.

Named after an ancient Caribbean deity, Zemi is a Baltic 110 Custom characterised by her metallic bronze hull, low-profile coach roof and teak deck that curves over the lip of the transom.

Zemi began construction last year and was commissioned by a highly experienced family with around-the-world cruising in mind. Designed by Malcolm McKeon, the sloop-rigged sailing yacht builds on the partnership between the studio and the shipyard that began with the delivery of the award-winning 34-metre Liara in 2019.

Interior design was completed by Andreas Martin-Löf as his first yacht project. Zemi features warm walnut and limestone veneers bonded to lightweight honeycomb structures. The new imagery also reveals a muted colour scheme, clean lines and warm, integrated lighting.

Among her many distinctive features, Zemi's main cockpit can be converted into a large sun lounging area with added protection by a combined fold-down spray hood and full-length removable bimini. Details of her fold-out transom and bathing platform, which lead into a stern garage for a Williams tender, were also revealed by the yard, including McKeon's trademark wrap-over teak decking continuing onto the transom.

Other performance-oriented measures include twin rudders and a telescopic lifting keel with a 28-tonne bulb, which can reduce draught from six metres to 3.95 metres. The yacht is also the third to feature Baltic's electric propulsion system and is equipped with low-emission generators designed to meet the IMO Tier 3 emissions regulations.

In addition to her eco-credentials, Zemi features a high-voltage electrical system that allow her to operate in "silent mode" for long periods of time.

This follows the successful delivery of the 33.8-metre Baltic Custom 111, Raven, in December.
