Seamaster: Baltic Yachts’ New 115-ft. Nikata

 

Words by: JPS for duncan quinn

 

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 Club’s 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 fibre 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 yacht’s transom opens to offer a wide swimming and boarding area with steps leading to the cockpit when she’s 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 owner’s stateroom along with three cabins for crew. We’ll see you on the water, then….

Words by: JPS for duncan quinn It may surprise you to learn that the most beautiful Porsche ever built is not the 911. Rather its faster older sibling the 904, aka the Carrera GTS, introduced a year after the now iconic coupe. Despite its astonishing success at the track – it clinched a first overall […]
