Baltic orders Dykstra Naval Architects’ 117ft. classic

AMSTERDAM – Baltic Yachts will build a 117ft (40m) composite-hulled classic sailing yacht from the boards of Dykstra Naval Architects and designed by Dutch designers deVosdeVries.

Building will commence in early autumn. The yacht will be delivered in 2021.

Michiel de Vos says the yacht will have a light, contemporary interior, adding, “We will be using stained oak, dark bog oak trims and ‘industrial-chic hardware’. The yacht has pilot cutter-style features, including a straight stem, bowsprit, counter stern and deep bulwarks. It has a very modern approach to emissions and the environment.

There will be a notable emphasis on efficiency with features such as ‘smart’ cabins, designed to automatically minimize power consumption when unoccupied, and air conditioning energy waste re-cycled to heat water.

It has an electric propulsion system powered by a lithium ion battery bank. The owner is an experienced yachtsman. It will be built to a DNV GL unlimited worldwide charter code enabling guests to cross oceans and sail almost anywhere. The yacht has a forward owners’ suite forward, 3 double guest cabins and room for 6 crew in the aft section.

Baltic Yachts’ Matthew Lester says, “This is a very consumption-conscious vessel using sophisticated computerized monitoring to pre-determine cabin ‘sleep’ modes depending on the conditions.”
