LIVE FROM FLIBS: Baltic Shipyard makes two major announcements in Fort Lauderdale

146 Custom Sloop Commissioned

Baltic Yachts is building a 146-foot (44.6-meter) sailing yacht with naval architecture by judel/vrolijk & co. The yacht—Baltic’s third-largest by volume—will be constructed using advanced composites, epoxy Sprint and pre-preg carbon. She will have twin rudders and a lifting keel that reduces draft to 11 feet (3.4 meters).

The owners’ stateroom and three double-berth guest staterooms will be amidships and forward, while accommodations for seven crew in four cabins will be aft. Onboard features will include a foredeck tender well, a fold-over anchor system, a lazarette, captive winches and a 550-horsepower main engine driving a forward-facing pull propeller that can rotate, eliminating the need for a stern thruster.

A Performance Baltic 85

Baltic Yachts has delivered an 85-foot (26-meter) performance sailing yacht. The yacht is designed by Dixon Yacht Design with an interior by Mark Whiteley Design. Her construction includes E-glass outer skin, a carbon and foam coring, with composite interior bulkheads and accommodations.
