New-Build

Unveiled to the industry and clients for the first time during this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, Baltic Yachts’ impressive 54-metre sailing sloop Pink Gin made for an impressive visit as SYT was shown inside her one-of-a-kind Design Unlimited interior. Pink Gin 54m Exterior

From the moment one enters the saloon below deck, it is quite clear that this interior is not like something you have experienced on any other sailing yacht before. A mix of styles, materials and colours make each area a new sensation to discover and makes one instinctively want to keep looking around the next corner. This particular style was achieved by working very closely together with Pink Gin’s experienced owner as Mark Tucker, Managing Director at Design Unlimited explains.Pink Gin 54m Interior

“When we began work on the interior design and exterior styling, the latter in collaboration with the yacht’s naval architects Judel/vrolijk & co, we started with a blank sheet of paper. The 175-foot yacht evolved as we drew on inspiration from fashion, art and music.”Pink Gin 54m Interior

A highlight on board is the owner’s suite located right in the forward part of the yacht. Elements of raw wood, leather and metal give the entire interior a not only character but a unique feel and smell that makes you easily forget you are in fact on a carbon fibre performance cruiser. In this regard, keeping weight to a minimum while achieving a real authentic ambience inside was achieved by often relying on adding light veneers of a certain material onto a lightweight core to keep Pink Gin performing the way she should with the sails up.Pink Gin 54m Interior

Quite unique to this market segment is the large folding balcony that opens on the starboard side of the master suite. This gives the suite a completely different feel when in the open position and is able to be closed by a glass sliding door and also a Louvre-style gate to keep the wind and any possible salt spray outside.Pink Gin 54m Interior

Moving further aft you will come across five additional guest suites that have each been appointed just as luxuriously and meticulously as the master cabin. “The main feature of the interior,” continues Mark, “is really the attention to detail in everything from the velvet-lined drawers, bespoke carpet and monogrammed clothes hangers, to the subtle differences in each of the bathrooms with their sand-cast, hand-finished hardware.”Pink Gin 54m Interior

Back in the Saloon, a striking feature has surely got to be the self-playing baby grand piano that sits just next to the companionway entrance, making it possible for guests inside and out on deck to hear the classical sounds. ““The idea for the piano in the saloon was inspired by happy memories of enjoying a sun-downer in Porto Cervo while listening to the resident pianist.”Pink Gin 54m InteriorPink Gin 54m Interior

With family cuisine being an important part of the Pink Gin experience, the yacht is equipped with a galley to match the owner’s love for good food and insisted on a gas stove to achieve that same sensation one would in some of the world’s finest restaurants.Pink Gin 54m Interior
