Sailing yacht Canova delivered by Baltic Yachts
by Raphael Montigneaux
Baltic Yachts has had a busy period lately, with the recent launch of their new flagship Hetairos and the delivery of a 35.78m performance sloop named Canova.
Canova, the second Baltic 112, was developed to follow her Italian owner's wishes: create a long range sailing yacht without compromise with a high level of performance. Judel/Vrolijk was responsible for her naval architecture, Baltic/R&J Design for the interior, and Alex Vismara brought some design imput.
The result is a very elegant and classical but efficient yacht with a hull constructed of E-glass and Aramid, with carbon fibre reinforcements and a traditional interior featuring mahogany woodwork. Her layout accommodates six guests in a master suite, a VIP stateroom and a twin cabin. The crew quarters for five are aft, with in independent entrance. Forward, two extra beds are available.
On the technical side, Canova is powered by a single 405hp Cummins engine. She's also equipped with all the latest systems and electronics available, and her safety is well advanced: for example the owner has a completely separate portable navigational electronic system, stored in an aluminium case.
Canova is now ready to circumnavigate the globe.
