Easy to operate, eco-friendly Cafė Racer was created to change the rules of the game. Baltic Yachts has designed a 68-foot daysealer for serial production - the first yacht will be launched in early 2021. The novelty features a combination of the latest environmentally friendly building materials and a 30 kW low-emission electric power plant.

Executive Vice President Henry Hawkins commented: “Baltic Yachts always responds to customer requests - we have been working on Cafė Racer since last year. We are willing and able to adapt to the technical requirements for an environmentally friendly vessel, the result is an incredibly exciting yacht! ”
Baltic 68 Cafė Racer is designed in such a way that you can go out to sea with the least effort. This is a powerful, easy-to-fly sailing yacht with a chic modern design, which was worked on by Javier Joden, who also has the Baltic 108 Win Win project.
Baltic Yachts carried out special research in the field of new eco-friendly materials and yacht building technologies. For their new product, they used naturally grown linen to strengthen the hull and reduce carbon emissions. More than 50 % hulls are built using Bcomp ampliTex flax as a reinforcement. In addition, it is excellent at absorbing noise, which will allow you to use less insulation materials and also increase the interior space.
Reducing local emissions
Key goal Baltic 68 Cafė Racer - minimizing local emissions. It is matched by the choice of an electric motor with a power of 30 kW, which is capable of generating electricity while driving. As a result, there is no need to burn fossil fuels, emissions are significantly reduced, and blessed silence ensues.
Like the plug-in hybrid car, the Cafė Racer comes with a range extender that is used to charge the lithium-ion battery as a supplement to the “home stock”. The range extender adopts highly efficient microturbine technology that will eventually run on hydrogen. With only one moving part, the turbine is easy and economical to maintain, and small enough to be worn under your arm!
Reduced energy consumption
Baltic Yachts continues to search for ways to reduce energy consumption. And for a new yacht they succeeded in 30 % reduce the cost of one of the most demanding household services - air conditioning. The system mixes recirculated, less humid air with fresh air to reduce the amount of energy required to maintain an optimal indoor climate. Ultraviolet filters purify the air from bacteria, and due to the connection to solar panels, the main battery is not consumed.
The beautifully laid deck is made from multi-purpose modified timber. it Resilient long-lasting pine with a 50-year decay guarantee. Due to the increased strength and durability, the thickness of the deck was reduced and, accordingly, the weight of the yacht was reduced. The use of LIGNIA Yacht materials means that Baltic Yachts will not use hardwood, while maintaining the performance and feel of a real deck.
Yacht of the XXI century
The eco-theme is organically continued in the cabins of the Cafė Racer. Used for interior decoration light oak timber and linen composite, combined with special wallpaper made of braided rods and paper cord. As a result, the premises look very light, fresh and modern.
Baltic 68 Cafė Racer Is a 21st century day-seller, eco-friendly, easy to operate, modern, with low emissions. It's a pleasure to ride this one! Construction will begin this spring with delivery expected in the summer of 2021.
