Baltic Yachts has entered a new realm of the super sailing yacht world this week with the launch of its highly anticipated new Baltic 142 superyacht Canova. Lowered into the waters of Jakobstad for the first time today, Canova’s performance design and racing features will set her apart from any other yacht in this size range. The launch comes one week after the unveiling of Baltic's 112 sailing yacht Liara, making for a busy and exciting period for this exclusive superyacht builder. Photo: Baltic Yachts
The vessel is designed by Farr Yacht Design in partnership with Gurit for comfortable long-distance cruising while the Milanese design studio Micheletti + Partners were selected to design the interior spaces on board Canova. Photo: Baltic Yachts
One of the most impressive features on board will no doubt be the 9-metre-long moving foil that is mounted athwartships at the maximum beam mark. Known as the DSS, the technology has proved highly effective in smaller vessels but Baltic Yachts will be the first superyacht builder to incorporate this technology into a vessel of this size.Photo: Baltic Yachts
Canova will also be fitted with a new diesel-electric drive system that promises to be far more efficient, smaller in size and emitting less noise and vibrations than conventional motors. Under sail, it is predicted that the yacht could reach a maximum speed of 25 knots in flat water in 25 knots of wind.
