New Model: Baltic M78

Baltic launch the M78 a fuly custom 23 meter semi-planing explorer yacht designed by German Mani Frers and conceived for offshore cruising, combining stunning interior and exterior styling with highly sophisticated hull design which should provide her owners with a comfortable ride at sea and a luxurious living platform at rest.  Mani Frers naval architecture, in the Baltic M78 makes the interesting observation that the speed achieved by large sailing yachts now matches those of motor yachts, much can be learned from the two disciplines to produce highly efficient hull forms.  Frers has also studied recent commercial ship research, which aims to make vessels as efficient as possible. This has led to the motion of the M78 less aggressive, which in turn has the unexpected effect of reducing motion sickness. M78 stability is further enhanced by two Seakeeper gyro stabilizers, all this, linked with the light, stiff hull and deck shell result in an outstanding yacht.  Baltic M78 narrow beam is fundamental to the yacht’s easily driven and sea-kindly hull. She’s powered by twin Volvo diesels 625hp driving through IPS dual propeller pod drives for further efficiency.  A lot has been worked into her accommodation including a stern garage for a tender and a well-equipped galley featuring a dumb waiter leading to the deck saloon. The yacht features striking photographic studies and specialist stucco paneling putting it in a class of her own.  Key features on M78 deck include a remarkable reflective glass deck superstructure housing the wheelhouse and deck saloon, deep bulwarks providing great protection and an all-round walkway and custom stainless steel work including unique 3D printed stainless steel push-pit and pulpit design which enhances the yacht’s contemporary look.  M78 is an advanced explorer yacht which will set the standard for further projects in this field from Baltic Yachts.
