First pictures: 53m Baltic sailing yacht Pink Gin VI emerges
Commissioned by yard owner Hans Georg Näder, who has built all six Pink Gin yachts with Baltic, this single-masted sailing yacht has been four years in development. The yard added that Pink Gin VI will hit the water next month.
Delivery is scheduled before the end of the year, at which point Pink Gin VIwill become the second largest yacht in the Baltic fleet, behind the 66.87 metre Hetairos, and one of the top 50 largest sailing yachts in the world.
First announced in the 2013 Global Order Book as the Baltic 170, Pink Gin VI was built from a carbon-sandwich construction method. This impressive sloop is designed by Judel/Vrolijk & Co. As the first photo shows, her vertical bow will be fitted with a bowsprit. What's more, her lifting keel allows the draft to be lowered from seven metres to 4.5 metres and her towering mast measures 67 metres tall.
The cockpit was designed in cooperation with interior designer, Design Unlimited, and the owner. It is divided into three zones, one with a freestanding dining area with direct access to the galley, one for the navigation area and one for relaxation set aft.
The interior will accommodate 14 guests in seven cabins including a full-beam owner suite forward with a private superyacht balcony, a feature rarely seen on a sailing yacht.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Finnish yard include the first Baltic 78 motor yacht, the 25.91 metre Baltic 85 Custom, the 34.14 metre Baltic 112 Custom and the 43.28 metre Baltic 142 Custom.
