The METSTRADE 2022 exhibition will open its doors very soon, where many new boats will be presented. Among them - Baltic 80 Custom
New boat for the experienced sailor
Just the other day, the Finnish shipyard Baltic Yachts about the creation of a new boat called Baltic 80 Custom. The length of the yacht will be 24 meters, and construction will begin very soon. According to the plans, the launch is expected in 2024.
The “sudden” announcement took place on the eve of METSTRADE 2022. Design and design is done by Judel/vrolijk studio. So far, Baltic Yachts has shared only one render of the future boat and does not name the customer. The shipyard was streamlined, calling the future owner "an experienced yachtsman who needed a boat that will be equally good both on cruises and on the race track."
The shipyard's executive vice president, Henry Hawkins, says: “This yacht will be particularly elegant and sporty. By and large, I would call her a “new generation 80” yacht in her size range.

Features Baltic 80 Custom
The new yacht has a distinctive bow with a reverse angle of inclination. The maximum width of the hull is at the stern. The yacht has double rudders, a full-fledged lifting keel and a powerful power plant. There will be a Williams 395 tender in the aft bulk compartment.
According to the shipyard, the boat will be an easy yacht to handle. In the basic configuration of the yacht there will be a self-tipping staysail. For the sake of truth, the final decision on what kind of sailing equipment will be on the boat has not yet been made.
The only thing they talk about clearly and confidently is the twisting of the mainsail into the mast. This system will definitely be on the Baltic 80. Of the interesting things on the deck are the streamlined cockpit and wheelhouse lines, as well as a folding body kit and a bimini to protect the cockpit.
Baltic 80 is able to accommodate six guests in three double cabins. There is a separate master cabin. The yacht will be built using advanced composite materials. Also, when creating the body, SPRINT prepreg and foam will be used.
We will find out more details after the METSTRADE exhibition, where full-fledged concepts and renderings will be presented. Construction is due to start in January 2023, with launch scheduled for summer 2024.
