Baltic 107 "INUKSHUK" Launched

Last week the German Frers designed, INUKSHUK which measures 32.64m (107ft) was successfully launched at the Baltic facility in Jakobstad in Finland. She is made to be a lightweight high performance sloop that will provide her new owner with fast, efficient and comfortable cruising.

She has a total displacement of 78232kg of which 31612kg is ballast. With this light weight displacement combined with the carbon spars and rigging package she is destined for only one thing "Performance". Her telescopic keel enables the draft to vary from 3.35m (11ft) to 4.85m (16ft) without interfering with the interior layout.   

Her interior styling was produced by Adam Lay who designed an ultra modern interior which combined the use of oak as the primary wood. She has an owners cabin forward moving the crew accommodation to the aft, which also leaves room for a VIP cabin just forward of the mast which is adjacent to the owners private study. Aft of the open plan saloon you will find two guest cabins and a dedicated childrens cabin to complete the accommodation.

The testing and sea trials will take place in Jakobstad during the summer after which she will make her way down to the Med where she will make her world premier at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
