Behind the Scenes of 34m foil-assisted Baltic 111 Raven

Baltic 111 Raven

When her owner commissioned this Baltic 111 Custom foil-assisted superyacht, weight control was paramount. Baltic Yachts was selected for its forensic approach to lightweight advanced composite construction and unique ability to combine it with an unmatched custom finish. Baltic Yachts has successfully moved the Baltic 111 Raven from her building facility at the company’s waterside premises in Jakobstad, Finland to reveal one of the most extreme yachts it has ever built.

Broadly described as a 111ft foil-assisted, ultra-lightweight superyacht, she will be used primarily for day sailing, but also undertake high-speed, long-distance passages. Not easy to categorise, this extraordinary yacht can be placed firmly in a class of her own.

Baltic Yachts was chosen to meet this challenge because of its unmatched reputation for building advanced composite superyachts to the very highest standards, including its forensic examination of systems and components throughout the build process. Add to that the company’s ability to finish yachts to a level of luxury second to none and the decision to build in Jakobstad was straightforward.

Baltic 111 Raven

Baltic 111 Raven’s experienced owner’s project manager, Garth Brewer of A2B Marine Projects, said: “ Raven doesn’t fall easily into a category, but if I had to place her, I’d say she’s the equivalent of a high-end Super-car. The boat is primarily for pure enjoyment and the owner likes the challenge of doing something that hasn’t been done before. ”

“ He really understands the technical elements and this will be a development project which will require a measured approach,” added Brewer, who emphasised the need for incremental steps in Raven’s trials, building confidence and understanding over time as the boat reaches her peak performance .

Baltic 130 My Song

Raven does, however, possess some distinctive features which provide more than a hint of how she might perform. They include two large T-shaped hydrofoils mounted on hydraulically controlled side-arms capable of supporting some of the boat’s displacement.

At her transom, Raven will be equipped with vertical Interceptor trim tabs to adjust fore and aft trim at speed and there is movable water ballast, carried in built-in tanks in the aft quarters to boost the righting moment required while sailing.

Designed to sail partly on her leeward chine, Baltic 111 Raven will derive her stability and lift, while sailing, from her foils, leaving her 9.3-ton fixed keel bulb and precision-engineered 5m long fin to provide basic stability. It’s also the location for a fully submerged intake for cooling water and is designed with a sacrificial zone to absorb impact in the event of a collision.

Ultra-lightweight interior of Baltic 111 Raven

Not only is Raven’s foil-assisted ability likely to deliver a phenomenal sailing performance, she is also the subject of a highly unusual study in ultra-lightweight interior design, combining the yacht’s complex all carbon construction with styling which pays homage to Baltic Yachts’ rigorous program of weight saving. Target displacement is 55 tons – just as a comparison, the recently launched, Baltic 110 Zemi displaces 95 tons.

Jarkko Jämsén, the Finnish concept designer who developed Raven with her owner and is responsible for the yacht’s styling, explained that they were keen to combine the need for weight saving with the opportunity to expose the remarkable carbon structure of the yacht to create a unique interior design aesthetic.

A key part of Baltic’s effort in the Raven project has been directed at weight saving and control. Apart from using the lightest possible carbon/Nomex combinations in the yacht’s main structures, every item, down to the last pipe clip, nut and bolt, has been assessed. The naval architects and structural engineers behind her are Botin Partners and PURE Design respectively, both at the leading edge of America’s Cup design.

“ This project undoubtedly represents one of the biggest challenges Baltic Yachts has ever embraced, ” said Baltic Yachts Executive Vice President, Henry Hawkins. “ But that is what we do – we have a long history of bringing leading edge innovation to the fore. We are surrounded and supported by a dedicated team who are led by Garth Brewer, who oversaw Visione’s construction here at Baltic 21 years ago and still keeps her on the pace. ”

Baltic 111 Raven: Experience to take on the challenge

Jarkko Jämsén emphasised the importance of choosing Baltic Yachts to build Raven. “ The company was selected because we believe it has the courage, experience and track record to take on the challenge. Calculating weight and Baltic’s well-known ability to hit displacement targets were critical. ”

For Sam Evans, project manager, and Mattias Svenlin, project co-ordinator for Raven, the challenge was to construct a superyacht much lighter than anything previously built by Baltic – yachts that were already considered light in the sphere of Superyachting. “ Mattias’ experience, creativity and flexibility, supported by a dedicated production team combined with Sam’s communication skills, have been key factors in the overall success of the build, ” added Garth Brewer.

“ This is another level entirely in terms of weight saving, ” said Mattias. To ensure as fair a hull finish as possible, a carbon mould was preferred to reduce excessive heat differences and thus distortion in the curing process. “ We re-assessed the hull coating schedule to reduce weight using light primers and filler instead of Ultra-Build to reach the acceptable industry standards – in effect coatings do the job of filler,” he said. Using this technique in a superyacht is unprecedented .”

Hull and deck construction use carbon IM fibre pre-preg, employing the highest quality fibres on the market, and a Kevlar honeycomb sandwich throughout.  The owner has accepted that sailing Baltic 111 Raven at speed will be noisy so the elimination of any attempt to sound deaden represents a huge weight saving. “ But we have created an interior finish with special surfaces affecting the acoustics to ‘soften’ the noise a little, ” said Mattias.  He pointed out, however, that all the adhesives suitable for bonding this material to bulkheads were compared for weight, the final choice resulting in a saving of 6kg. In terms of the Raven project that’s a big number.

Baltic 111 Raven

100 grams off every bracket

Baltic Yachts has revisited all weight saving opportunities shaving 100 grams off every carbon pipe bracket, making carbon cable trays even lighter and switching out steel hydraulic pipework for lighter hosing which has saved 160kg. “ We’ve even reduced the weight of the shower door from 13.5kg per m² to just 2.3kg m², ” said Mattias.

Even as Raven neared completion, the Baltic build team were continuing to identify weight-saving opportunities including replacing the metal clips holding the lightweight carbon tubular accommodation framework in place. “Östen Sundelin, one of the team, reckoned we could 3D print them in a far lighter material so we went ahead and made that saving,” said Mattias. In-house 3D printing is increasingly used at Baltic to fashion custom items to save weight and optimize design, the complex titanium head of the yacht’s retractable propulsion system (RPS) mechanism being a case in point.

Lightweight interior design

Raven’s interior, conceptualized by Jarkko Jämsén, is unusually comprehensive for a high-performance superyacht of this type, but the use of ultra-lightweight rattan deck-heads and bulkhead finishes, exposed carbon and a lack of coatings help keep weight down along with Nomex cores in structural bulkheads. All the frameworks for the furniture, for example, are made from hollow carbon piping, its lightweight combining with a modern take on style guaranteed to turn heads.

The focal point of the accommodation is centered around the glazed sides of the large cockpit, dubbed the ‘bird’s nest’, which forms a type of inverted observation ‘dome’ allowing occupants to view the carbon-dominated accommodation. The glazing is in fact Perspex, which is considerably lighter than toughened glass, representing an overall saving of 250kg. It is reinforced with a criss-cross pattern of carbon mullions which gave it its bird’s nest description. Further weight saving is achieved by minimizing the amount of caulking between each pane and replacing some of it with a foam fillet.

Baltic 111 Raven

On deck, attention is immediately drawn to the cockpit because, apart from its aforementioned aesthetics, it also converts to a semi-covered, hardtop-protected seating area. The forward section of the cockpit hinges up and aft in ‘clam-shell’ style to affect this unique conversion.

Perspex is also used in numerous deck prisms which still use a centuries-old design to efficiently illuminate the accommodation with natural light, but are vastly lighter by replacing bronze and glass with carbon and Perspex.

Spacious saloons are located fore and aft of the bird’s nest, the forward one laid out with a galley and dining areas and the aft space dedicated to the owner’s sleeping accommodation, with a large double centreline berth folding up against an interior bulkhead when the yacht is in performance mode. There’s also a passage berth or sea cabin to starboard.

It is not often one can describe a head and shower compartment as a work of art, but in the Baltic 111 Raven’s case numerous hydraulic rams mounted inside some of the complex carbon reinforcement, including the A frame taking the load of the deck stepped mast, have been exposed by inserting Perspex inspection covers. So, you can take a shower while watching the upper and lower deflector rams in action or the downhaul ram for the 7m long reaching strut, which is used to optimise headsail sheet leads!

Further weight saving has been achieved by modifying a custom bamboo seat in one of the shower/head compartments with carbon tubing made to look like bamboo, complete with its characteristic rings and a remarkably realistic painted finish.

The aft section of the yacht is largely empty, but forward there’s accommodation for four guests in two cabins and extensive crew accommodation including a captain’s cabin.

For propulsion and generating, the design team settled on a diesel-electric hybrid system for lower emissions and efficient weight distribution. It’s a solution Baltic Yachts has been perfecting for a number of years. A Swiss 130kW Phi-Power AG electric propulsion motor is located just aft of amidships and twin 80kW Yanmar generators, optimized to save weight, are located further aft. These charge two battery banks which power the main propulsion motor, hydraulic pumps and accommodation services. The drive train is completed by a retractable propeller designed with carbon blades and a titanium hub.

Also in attendance were the project manager, representatives from build team and other Baltic Yacht dignitaries. Executive Vice President Henry Hawkins had this to say, “Whenever we launch a yacht to join the Baltic family, it’s fair to say the thoughts of many members of our staff sail away with her, celebrating the conclusion of another unique build and wishing her and her owner fantastic sailing.”

Her striking metallic bronze hull contrasts dramatically with the teak decks and superstructure style, described as ‘classic aggressive’ by the owner’s representative. Her vertical coachroof windows and streamlined, low-level superstructure are distinctive features as is her teak-clad main cockpit which can be converted into a sizable sun lounging area and protected by a fold-down hood and full-length removable bimini.

Her interior is the work of award-winning Swedish architect Martin-Löf who has applied his minimalist style with the use of sustainable materials including walnut and limestone veneer to reduce weight. There is an abundance of natural light from long salon port windows and coachroof skylights plus thoughtful lighting design which includes lanterns made from Japanese rice paper and walnut edging.

As well as her multitude of headsail options, the owner has opted for a zero-emissions electric propulsion system using a 247kW Danfoss motor to drive the propeller. A bank of lithium-ion batteries is changed by two 129kw gensets and supply all the domestic, hydraulic and rig handling equipment.

Baltic Yachts announces sale of Baltic 110

Due for delivery in 2023, the project comes at a busy time for the builder….

Baltic Yachts has won a contract to build a 110ft sloop. The project represents the third Baltic superyacht to feature electric propulsion as environmental considerations continue to dominate designs following the launch of Baltic 142 Canova and the imminent launch of the Baltic 117 Custom.

The announcement follows the recently-signed contract for the high-performance Baltic 111 Custom, and Baltic Yachts' Executive Vice President Henry Hawkins says the company’s sales team is working on a number of further contracts. “I am delighted to report a surge in demand for Baltic Yachts with an increasing number of clients looking at electric propulsion and other environmentally conscious solutions we can offer,” he says.

The new yacht has been designed by Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design, building on the already-established relationship between the MMYD studio and builder following the successful delivery of 34m SY Liara in 2019. “We are delighted to be working with Baltic Yachts on this exciting new project,” comments McKeon.

“This design features an all-carbon structure, a telescoping keel and a generous sail plan, which will ensure excellent all-round sailing performance. The exterior styling is new and contemporary, and maximises the use of glass in the superstructure to create a light and open interior feel. The interior itself will be designed by Andreas Martin-Löf, which will be his first venture into yacht interior design.”

The project will not only feature an electric drive, but low emission twin 129kW generators using new Cummins diesel engines designed to meet IMO Tier 3 emissions regulations. The Danfoss electric propulsion unit, powered by Lithium-ion batteries, will drive through a conventional shaft. The benefits of the electric drive include vastly reduced emissions, high levels of efficiency, a quieter drive train with reduced vibration and a modular setup allowing flexibility within the engine room.

“There’s a clear trend developing in support of low emissions yachting and we are delighted to be building another yacht featuring the latest technology which supports a cleaner, greener environment,” adds Hawkins.

The cruising sloop has been developed by an experienced and knowledgeable sailing family and is designed for long distance global voyaging. She will also feature a high voltage electrical system enabling the yacht to operate in silent mode for long periods of time while maintaining comfortable on-board living conditions. 

The all-carbon sloop will be fitted with a lifting keel, a Southern Spars rig package and may feature newly developed photovoltaic sun awnings which will further enhance the yacht’s eco-energy credentials. In charge of external project management will be A2B Marine Projects and, with building starting shortly, the Baltic 110 Custom will be due for delivery in 2023.

The announcement of the Baltic 110 project comes at a busy time for the company. Baltic 146 Path has just been launched at the yard in Jakobstad and the Baltic 117 Custom is also nearing completion.

Baltic Yachts' Perseverance is a classic-looking sloop with a modern sustainable edge.

Standing out from the crowd with a metallic-bronze hull, the neo-classic fast cruising cutter was commissioned by an experienced owner who returned to Dykstra Naval Architects following the success of his previous yacht, a Dykstra 60. This time, he wanted to undertake longer passages in comfort but without compromising on speed.

The owner chartered a collection of sailing yachts to iron out his wish list, including a larger yacht with excellent sailing characteristics, ease of maintenance and power-saving systems. With 65 feet of extra length, Perseverance delivers. Plus it has a luxurious interior by deVosdeVries Design and a double cockpit deck layout. The yacht is also equipped with a high-aspect rudder and lifting keel to enhance sailing capabilities. “The goal for the owner was to have a classic sloop with clean deck equipment to make it easy to handle when sailing,” Tommy Johansson, project manager at Baltic Yachts , told Robb Report during a tour of the boat. “So, the yacht can set and furl its sails via push buttons for easy short-handed cruising.”

Baltic Yachts' 'Perseverance' is a classic-looking sloop with a modern sustainable edge.

Perseverance bears many of the traditional hallmarks for which Dykstra is known, including a straight stem, distinctive deep bulwarks and truncated counter. Its deck house, skinned in teak, has individual rectangular windows that provide classic appeal. Like the timber caprail, the wood is treated with oil rather than varnish to reduce maintenance and steer away from a high-gloss finish. The center cockpit—one of the owner’s favorite places on board—is shaded by a mini hardtop that can be lowered to protect the seating and dining area against salt spray when not in use. Inside, light-gray oak, maple and leather-stitched details create a gentleman’s club-meets-industrial-chic ambience. Subtle LED lighting gives a modern touch. The main salon is light and airy, with high ceilings that provide decent headroom and knurled hardware in a dark-matte vintage patina.

Perseverance sleeps eight guests in four cabins, comprising a master suite, one VIP cabin and two twins. They are all fitted with sensors that monitor the interior temperature based on guest occupancy. When not in use, the temperature automatically adjusts to save on energy.

The yacht has cruised extensively since her delivery last year, already clocking 10,000 nautical miles at an average speed of 20 knots. Building a yacht with sustainable credentials was a key prerequisite for the owner. Perseverance ’s diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system can regenerate 20 to 25 kilowatts while under way at 12 to 14 knots, recharging the batteries in 4.5 hours, which then provide up to nine hours of silent running at anchor.

“It means the yacht can head out for a day’s sailing and return to the marina without using its engines,” says Johansson. “In fact, the owner has done that already, enjoying nine hours of silent cruising with only the batteries powering the hotel load.”

Perseverance is now in the Caribbean, with the owner making the most of his easy sailer by spending as much time at the wheel as possible.

Russian Destroyer Catches Fire in Barents Sea Due to Malfunction: Kyiv

R ussia's large anti-submarine ship Admiral Levchenko is on fire in the Barents Sea, according to the spokesperson of the Ukrainian Navy.

Dmytro Pletenchuk, spokesperson for Ukraine's Southern Defense Forces and the Navy, said in a post on Facebook that one of the vessel's engines had malfunctioned and caught fire with several hundred crew members on board.

The vessel was commissioned by Russia in 1988, Ukrainian media reported. Russia has lost a number of its key vessels throughout the war in Ukraine.

"Enemy equipment is on fire. More precisely, the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Levchenko in the Barents Sea. Its struggle for survival continues, hopefully in vain," he wrote.

"This is what happens when a 'superpower' is sanctioned by Ukraine and cannot independently service engines produced in [Ukraine's] Mykolaiv. One of the installations caught fire," Pletenchuk said.

"Your training is going great, guys, don't stop," he added. "Just so you understand, there are several hundred crew there."

Newsweek couldn't independently verify Pletenchuk's claims and has contacted Russia's Defense Ministry for comment by email.

Kyiv has targeted Russia's Black Sea Fleet throughout President Vladimir Putin' s full-scale invasion of the country, which began in February 2022. Ukraine has vowed to reverse the Russian leader's 2014 annexation of Crimea, which now serves as Moscow's central logistics hub for its forces in southern Ukraine.

As a result, Russia has been forced to relocate many of its warships away from Crimea to its Novorossiysk base in Russia's Krasnodar region.

In April, British Defense Minister Grant Shapps said in a post on X that Russia's Black Sea Fleet has essentially been rendered "functionally inactive." Ukraine's military said that by December 2023, about a third of the fleet had been destroyed.

In one of Kyiv's most recent attacks, Ukrainian Main Intelligence Directorate (HUR) said its forces successfully attacked and destroyed a Russian "Saturn" tugboat near Crimea using naval kamikaze drones.

"Maritime strike. All hits on target. Minus one more enemy ship," HUR spokesperson Andriy Yusov said during a national broadcast on June 6.

"On June 6, a special unit of the 9th Department of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine off the coast of the temporarily occupied Crimea successfully struck a Russian raid tugboat of the Project 498 Saturn or Protey," the HUR statement said.

"Another ship belonging to the Russian invaders was destroyed," it added. "The destructive fire damage was inflicted after a successful breakthrough of the Russian line of defensive barriers in the Black Sea."

Pletenchuk said on national television on Sunday that Russia had begun patrolling the Black Sea with submarines after Ukraine damaged several dozen Russian ships.

The Swedish Armed Forces on Saturday issued a statement after a Russian military aircraft violated their airspace the previous day.  Commander of the Swedish Air Force, Jonas Wikman, called Russia’s act ‘unacceptable’ and said that the aggravated act showed a lack of respect for Sweden’s territorial integrity.

The Russian SU-24 fighter plane is accused of having violated Swedish airspace just east of the island of Gotland, located in the Baltic Sea, approximately 150 miles south of the capital Stockholm. A Swedish JAS-39 Gripen jet was then sent to intercept the Russian plane after a verbal call from the Swedish air combat command to retreat was ignored. According to the military, the incident was over quickly. The military said that the last violations of its airspace by Russia were made in 2022, when two Russian SU-27s and two Russian SU-24s violated the Nordic country’s airspace, also over Gotland.

Sweden became NATO’s newest member in March of this year, the 32nd country to join the alliance. It initially applied for membership, alongside Finland, in 2022 after Russia invaded Ukraine, ending over two centuries of military non-alignment and neutrality. Sweden, alongside other NATO allies, was conducting naval exercises in the Baltic Sea last week as part of the annual Baltic Operations exercise (BALTOPS). This was the first time Sweden had taken part in the operation, with Vice Admiral, Thomas Ishee, Commander of STRIKEFORNATO and U.S. 6th Fleet saying:

Liara is a complete level above anything else I have built in the past and I don’t know any yard that could deliver a yacht of this complexity virtually on time and to that extremely high quality.

Owner, Baltic 112 Liara

Owner, Baltic 112 Nilaya

When I was making my choice of builder, I concluded that the Baltic 67 had been far better thought through than similar yachts. A key requirement for my new yacht was high quality of build.

OUR AWARD WINNING YACHTS

In total our yachts have amassed thirty-three awards by various organisations including the ShowBoat Design Awards, the International Superyacht Society Awards and the World Superyacht Awards. Each yacht’s ability to perform equally well in cruise and race mode, together with Baltic Yachts’ ability to bring design alive, have consistently impressed the judges.

PASSION FOR INNOVATION

baltic yachts news

HYDROGENERATION

Using an electric motor for a yacht’s auxiliary propulsion has become popular as the need for more environmentally acceptable power increases. A great advantage of using an electric motor is that it can work as a generator by harnessing energy from the ‘free-wheeling’, controllable pitch propeller when the yacht is sailing. The electric motor becomes a generator, which charges a battery bank and in turn supplies power to the sailing systems and services aboard the yacht.
