cruising-racing sailing yacht / open transom / carbon / custom
BALTIC 70 VITTFARNE
Delivery Year: 1997 | Naval Architect: Bill Dixon
Outwardly this 70-footer bears all the hallmarks of a classic yacht with timeless looks, which should stand the test of time.
Carefully planned by the owner, designer Bill Dixon Design and project manager David Barwell, both the interior and exterior were given a classic look and this is very much reflected in the accommodation’s intricate wood paneling.
In fact, one of the key aspects of this project was the joinery work with an enormous amount of detail in the design. Disguising the carbon and other hi-tech materials was a real challenge, with every element of the interior finish individually handcrafted.
The high quality of the finished product bears testament to Baltic’s talented woodworkers.
But beneath all the timber is a lightweight hull and deck constructed in carbon/epoxy vacuumed laminates which contributed to weight reduction and a good sailing performance.
