Seamaster: Baltic Yachts New 115-ft. Nikata

Seamaster: Baltic Yachts New 115-ft. Nikata

Words by: JPS

When it comes to sailing superyachts, there are few boatyards than can give Monaco-based Wally a run for their bees and honey.

But Baltic Yachts out of Jakobstad, Finland is making a big splash with the launch of their wicked new 115-ft. Nikata, set to make its racing debut at the Royal Ocean Racing Clubs Caribbean 600 regatta in February. The nifty cruiser-racer just successfully completed her sea trials which showed she is capable of 28 knots, which means stiff competition come February. The sleek silver vessel is the latest example of precision carbon fiber engineering and construction from Baltic along with naval architect Judel Vrolijk and Nauta Design.

The Nauta team were also responsible for the largest yacht in the world, the 590-ft. Azzam. Constructed of lightweight pre-preg (i.e. pre-impregnated with resin) carbon fiber, Nikata has a displacement of only 88 tons, helping her move along at a good clip. The yachts transom opens to offer a wide swimming and boarding area with steps leading to the cockpit when shes being used for recreational rather than racing activities. Inside the decor is light and modern with polished oak and natural hued linens. The yacht has accommodation for eight guests in four cabins including an owners stateroom along with three cabins for crew. We'll see you on the water, then.
