Delivered: New Baltic 130 My Song sets sail

Written by Charl van Rooy

Baltic Yachts has delivered its latest creation in superyacht innovation and racing-spirited contenders. The 40-metre My Song is built for an experienced yachtsman, designers Reichel/Pugh and Nauta Design are behind the sleek profile and functional layout of the yacht, with Nigel Ingram from MCM taking the lead as owner’s representative.

Her plumb bow entry and wide stern area provides a fast yet stable ride whether in race mode or when cruising. My Song’s hull is constructed from a lightweight carbon/Corecell composite hull. Interior bulkheads are made up of Nomex cores, further contributing to the overall stiffness of the vessel.

North Sails worked closely with Reichel/Pugh using computational fluid dynamics and advanced velocity prediction programs to arrive at the perfect balance between hull shape and sail design.

The innovation is continued below the water line with a fully retractable propulsion system and lifting keel setup, minimising the 7-metre draft to as little as 4.8 metres.

Baltic Yachts’ CEO Henry Hawkins, said: “Our reputation for precision building in lightweight carbon with every component weighed and factored into the design has enabled displacement to be kept to the 105-ton target providing the ideal platform for a high-performance cruiser/racer.”
