Baltic Yachts is delighted to announce the sale of the Baltic 67PC

Baltic Yachts is delighted to announce the sale of the third Baltic 67PC, confirming continued interest in a versatile yacht designed for fast, efficient, long distance sailing. The latest order for this stylish performance cruiser is another illustration of how varied a specification is possible in a yacht based on the same hull mould using Baltic’s expertise.
 
The judel/vrolijk-designed Baltic 67PC was conceived as a robust, fast, easy to handle long distance cruising yacht able to perform well in light to medium airs downwind sailing conditions and maintain high daily mileage averages without recourse to the engine.

Henry Hawkins, Baltic Yachts’ EVP, said:
“This new order confirms the high level of interest in the Baltic 67PC concept which provides easy long-distance cruising, a genuinely rewarding sailing experience and, by reducing the dependence on engine use, support for our quest for sustainability.”
A great advantage of the 67 is that although based on the same hull mould, almost any concept can be worked into the design envelope with the first yacht, Manyeleti, a successful out and out shorthanded, bluewater cruising yacht. Hull number two, Lurigna, launched is 2019, is a multi-role yacht designed for offshore racing events like the Rolex Fastnet, in which she competed in 2019, but is also fully equipped for comfortable family cruising.
 
Remote control sailing

The client for Baltic 67PC-03 is keen to sail short handed, so apart from electric primary sheet winches there are press-button controls for the mainsheet and traveller, main halyard, in-boom furling and headsail furling.


He will also be able to complete all sail trim and engine control remotely using a wireless hand held control unit which he will be able to operate from anywhere on the yacht. The control will also extend to the electric bow and stern thrusters enabling him to manoeuvre the yacht entirely remotely.Baltic Yachts is delighted to announce the sale of the Baltic 67PCBaltic Yachts is delighted to announce the sale of the Baltic 67PC

 Cockpit protection
Included in the brief is a requirement to keep the cockpit area well protected and to this end a hard-top bimini has been specified. The distinctive, advanced composite structure extends aft to a load-bearing arch upon which the push-button electro-hydraulic mainsheet car is mounted, keeping the mainsheet safely out of the cockpit.

The hardtop features a large sliding, tinted skylight and provides a mount for solar panels adding to an array on the coachroof. A stylish soft awning can be fitted to the aft end of the hardtop, extending to the twin fixed backstays to provide further protection for the twin helm stations.

With its extensive protection, the cockpit almost doubles as a deck saloon, well equipped as it is with comfortable seating and a large dining table.

Diesel-electric and hydrogeneration
With a considerable electrical demand to drive the yacht’s press-button operations a comprehensive battery charging system has been specified.

Although the main propulsion unit for the yacht is a conventional diesel engine, it is linked via a clutch to a large 40kW alternator which not only charges a bank of 10 lithium-ion batteries, but can also be used to drive the propeller as an alternative to the main engine. Battery charging is also available via hydrogeneration using the free-wheeling propeller when sailing.

The extensive array of solar panels will provide sufficient power to run the yacht’s fridge and freezer units and an additional generator will be installed to charge the 48-volt electrical system, an advantage of which is considerable weight saving through the use of smaller guage cabling.Baltic Yachts is delighted to announce the sale of the Baltic 67PCBaltic Yachts is delighted to announce the sale of the Baltic 67PC


Design by virtual reality
Another notable feature of this project has been the use of virtual reality for development meetings. The owner has been involved in the ergonomics of deck layout and interior design by using virtual reality headsets enabling him to ‘walk’ through the yacht with the Baltic Yachts’ team to discuss design and detail.

Being able to use VR with the client to evolve design aboard the virtual yacht is a powerful tool relying on high-definition computer-generated digital imagery created by Baltic Yachts’ in-house designers and Design Unlimited.

Details of the accommodation will be released at a later date but the intention is for an open plan arrangement using a modern loft-style design.

The rig is all carbon, supported by twin fixed backstays, designed to negate the requirement for runners. The sailplan features a conventional, pinhead style mainsail, twin headstays and a pad-eye furler for Code sails.

While the deck and superstructure will be built in advanced carbon laminates, the hull will be constructed in SPRINT E glass with carbon reinforcement in high load areas like chainplates, keel and rudders.

Construction of the Baltic 67PC-03 has commenced and launch is scheduled for the spring of 2022.
