They say that all the best things come in small packages — but, of course, when you’re talking about superyachts — a ‘small package’ is all relative. With their newly delivered Mini Y, Baltic Yachts present an 85 foot (26-meter) vessel, perfect for sailing short-handed.
Now, as the winter winds whistle across Mini Y’s native Scandinavia, the yacht has recently departed Jakobstad in Finland on her maiden voyage in search of warmer climes with Southampton in the UK as her first port of call.
We don’t want to be the ones to tell her that it isn’t too warm over here at the moment, either…
On deck, Mini Y treats guests to a comfortable cockpit capable of being shaded, and there is sleeping accommodation for the owner, two guests in a airy twin cabin, plus crew.
One key specification for the Mini Y, was that it needed to be whisper-quiet for long durations. Therefore, this Baltic 85 Custom has a powerful battery bank to handle a variety of loads.
In fact, it includes 30 lithium-ion batteries, packing 24 volts apiece and a 2,200-amp-per-hour capacity.
Given that she has an anticipated 1,000-nautical-mile range with a 180-hp Volvo Penta engine, this (ever-so-slightly) smaller yacht certainly punches well above its weight.
