Ännu en toksnygg båt från våra vänner i öster, Baltic 112 Nilaya. Foton: Guido Cantini.
BALTIC 112 NILAYA – an elegant and timeless super yacht
On the 3rd of May the Baltic 112 Reichel Pugh Nauta, named Nilaya, was successfully launched at Baltic Yachts new facilities in Jakobstad. Baltic 112 Nilaya is set to be one of the most high-performance sailing boats of its size. It’s a superyacht that can deliver high performance with all the pedigree of a stripped-out racer. When high performance is high on the priorities, carbon-fibre pre-preg composite construction is the obvious way to go.
Nauta Yacht Design conceived the general arrangement plans and the sleek lines of “NILAYA” teaming up with Reichel Pugh Yacht Design who has been responsible of the Naval Architecture. The two design studios already have a solid collaboration history in the design of high performance cruiser racers.
The Baltic 112 Nilaya will have a displacement of just 87 tons and incorporates a lifting keel, capable of reducing the maximum draft of 5.50 metres to just 3.50 metres. At the same time the yacht offers the most exigent guests some elements which are normally the characteristics of yachts in a higher L.O.A. range: the bright deck house where enjoying an all-around sight, as if you were outside, the four spacious guest cabins, with a large and elegant Owner’s cabin, three comfortable cabins for crew with the Captain’s double cabin, the functional and huge galley. Care for details, even the smallest, a rational and functional interior arrangement, a simple, synthetic yet timeless style are the ingredients of this spectacular looking superyacht.
This is the first time Nauta and Baltic Yachts have been working together and quoting Baltic Yachts’ Managing Director Kenneth Nyfelt and Nauta’s C.E.O. Mario Pedol “it has been really a pleasure working together during the 3 years build period”. Also Nigel Ingram of Marine Construction Management has been working closely with the project management of the 112 build.
