Video: Baltic 85 Custom sailing yacht delivered

The 26 metre Baltic 85 Custom sailing yacht has been delivered following successful sea trials off the coast of Finland.

The silver hulled sloop-rigged yacht has left the yard's Jakobstad headquarters and is now bound for Southampton.

It comes after the yacht was launched in July this year. Construction began in summer 2017 and saw the yacht built from an E-Glass outer skin, Divinycell foam core and pre-preg carbon inner skin.

Dixon Yacht Design took care of both the naval architecture and exterior lines, while Mark Whiteley Design was handed the yacht's interior décor. Nigel Ingram of MCM and Fredrik Hjulforts provided project management services.

The owner opted for a telescopic lifting keel that can reduce the draft from 4.3 metres to 2.95 metres when required. Accommodation is for up to four guests split between an owner’s cabin and a guest cabin, while the crew quarters will allow for a staff of two people.

Baltic Yachts's project manager Hjulforts said the yacht's exemplary space planning had benefitted from the owner's considerable experience in yachting.

“The extensive use of 3-D modelling has also enabled us to use space highly efficiently,” he added.

The addition of a bank of 30 lithium ion 24-volt service batteries will enable the yacht to remain in "quiet she mode" for long periods.
