As winter’s grip tightens across Scandinavia, Baltic Yachts’ new 26-metre composite sailing yacht Mini Y recently departed Jakobstad in Finland on her maiden voyage in search of warmer climes with Southampton in the UK as her first port of call. Mini Y sailing yacht Baltic YachtsPhoto: Baltic Yachts

Under the guidance of Baltic Yachts’ project manager, Fredrik Hjulfors the project involved naval architect Bill Dixon Yacht Design, Mark Whiteley Design as interior designer and owner’s project managers Nigel Ingram and MCM. Mini Y sailing yacht Baltic YachtsPhoto: Baltic YachtsMini Y sailing yacht Baltic YachtsPhoto: Baltic Yachts

Mini Y was built using an E-Glass outer skin, carbon fibre inner and a foam core. The result is a spacious interior and a light ship trim displacement of just 50 tonnes. The owner challenged Baltic with fitting the yacht with a ‘silent operation mode’ which lead to the yacht being equipped with a battery bank consisting of 30 Lithium-ion batteries. This will allow Mini Y to stay at anchor or operate in near silence for extended periods. Mini Y sailing yacht Baltic YachtsPhoto: Baltic YachtsMini Y sailing yacht Baltic YachtsPhoto: Baltic Yachts

Designed for short-handed cruising, Mini Y comes with a lifting keel and a surprisingly powerful rig that is as effective as it is easy to handle.  Mini Y sailing yacht Baltic YachtsPhoto: Baltic Yachts
