Baltic 175 Pink Gin returned to Baltic Yachts dockside facilities in Jakobstad for some interim refit work ahead of her five-year survey in two years’ time having sailed almost 69,000 nautical miles including six Atlantic crossings since her launch in 2017.
Design Unlimited in their press release state: „Pink Gin is a yacht that cannot be categorized within existing superyacht parameters’. It’s quite a claim and they might be right.
The spectacular and innovative silver-hulled sloop was launched in july 2017, following a complex build programme of precision engineering and building. Pink Gin is not only the largest carbon fibre sloop in the world, but also displays some of the most innovative features seen in a sailing yacht, including two opening balconies set into the topsides, Baltic Yachts’ revolutionary Force Feedback Steering System and an 18-ton carbon composite hull and deck shell built to the highest degree of accuracy.
This is the second largest yacht Baltic Yachts has built in its 46-year history and is a perfect example of the company’s ability to innovate on a large scale using their in depth skills in composite construction.
