Baltic Yachts has a loyal following among sailing-superyacht enthusiasts.
Those yachts feature carbon composite construction, in sizes to about 200 feet (60 meters). Along similar lines, the new Baltic Motor Yachts division will include megayachts, as well as day cruisers, for those who like the speed and space power projects afford.
The Finnish shipyard is expanding its construction expertise as a response to client requests. Some enjoy the variety afforded by the sailing lifestyle as well as the power lifestyle, for example. Other owners took note of a motoryacht restoration that Baltic Yachts completed early last year. Sunny Day, an all-wood 82-footer (25-meter) from 1989, was that project. She belongs to Baltic Yachts’ owner, Hans Georg Näder (who also has owned a number of Baltic sailing yachts). “The refit of our family motoryacht, Sunny Day, stimulated me also to initiate our own Ligurian-styled motoryacht line,” Näder comments.
The Baltic Motor Yachts division includes two ranges. There’s the Day Boat range, and the Motor Yacht series, both pretty self-explanatory. So far two models comprise the Day Boat Range. The first is the Baltic MY49, a 49-footer (15-meter). She’s accompanied by a bigger sister, the Baltic MY56, a 56-footer (17-meter). As for the Motor Yacht range, it includes three models. They are the Baltic MY88, the Baltic MY112, and the Baltic MY135 (measuring 27, 34, and 41 meters, respectively).
The shipyard says buyers will get to tailor the interiors of the various motoryachts. All Day Boat and Motor Yacht projects are set for construction in the same shipyard where the sailing yachts come together.
