New custom 37m sloop contract

Baltic Yachts has begun construction of a new custom 121ft (37m) high-performance blue water cruising sloop.

The naval architecture and exterior styling are by Malcolm McKeon with the interiors by Adam Lay Studio.

Delivery of the Baltic 121 custom is planned for autumn 2026.

The design brief is for a blue water performance cruiser for extensive family cruising with emphasis on safe and reliable systems using well proven technologies.

“This design features an all-carbon structure, a telescopic keel, a fixed bimini and a generous sail plan, ensuring excellent all-round sailing performance,” explained Malcolm McKeon. “The contemporary exterior styling maximises the use of glass in the superstructure, creating a light and open interior with 360° views from the all-glass deckhouse.”

Key strengths

Adam Lay added: “The interior will be a development of our studio’s modern, nature-inspired, textural approach with clean lines and muted wood tones.

“Contrasting textural fabrics will form part of the carefully balanced aesthetic with practicality and longevity kept in mind for relaxed family cruising.”

Baltic Yachts has already launched two new builds this season – the third Baltic 68 Café Racer and a next-generation Baltic 80 Custom cruiser-racer with a further launch due to follow.

“This commission plays to Baltic Yachts’ key strengths,” explained Henry Hawkins, EVP at Baltic Yachts. “We have delivered 12 yachts over 100ft LOA in the last ten years, all within their contractual weight targets, within their original budget and on average within a week of their contractual delivery dates.

“A track record of which we are very proud.”

The shipyard has also recently completed a wide-ranging refit of the Baltic 175 Ravenger (ex-Pink Gin VI), the world’s largest carbon composite sloop, work which has boosted her sailing performance as well as restyling the interior.
