With fitting out now well advanced, Baltic Yachts' 142 custom sloop Canova is on track to hit the water spring of next year. Commissioned by an experienced owner, a repeat Baltic client, she is set to be delivered next summer. Current construction on the 43.3-metre super sailing yacht includes the completion of her one-piece superstructure and machinery room, which houses a unique diesel-electric power-plant.
Previously described as one of the ‘most advanced high-performance super-sailing yachts ever built’ by the Finnish shipyard, one of the most characteristic features on board is the Dynamic Stability System (DSS). With the DSS foil casing installed just below the waterline aft of the amidships section, it is first to be fitted to a yacht of this size. The DSS will improve performance and comfort levels, ensuring the structure can cope with the 140-tonne load.
In addition to this innovative implementation, the Baltic 142 Canova will also feature a new diesel-electric drive system which is set to be more efficient, smaller in size and emitting less noise and vibrations than conventional motors.
Farr Yacht Design has created the Baltic 142’s exteriors, and Ronny Nyfelt has been managing the superstructure construction. Together with Lucio Micheletti, Baltic Yachts have designed the superyacht’s interiors.
