Baltic Yachts has recently launched an eco-friendly 68-footer yacht, which embodies the latest eco-friendly building materials and a low emission power pack featuring a 30kW electric propulsion unit. The yacht has hydrogeneration, solar panels and sustainable, modified wood decks to dramatically reduce her environmental impact.By words of executive vice president Henry Hawkins, "Baltic Yachts has been reacting to customer demand and we’ve been working on the details of this exciting Café Racer since last year. Our desire and ability to adapt to the technical demands of an eco-friendly yacht have resulted in an extremely exciting product."The yacht was designed by Javier Jaudenes and she’s also a powerful, easy to handle sailing yacht with a cool, contemporary, luxury 60s-styled interior. Materials used in the Café Racer’s accommodation continue the eco-theme with light oak timbers and flax composites combining with specialist wallpapers, wicker and paper cord to produce a light, cool, contemporary accommodation.More than 50% of the hull structure will use Bcomp amplitex flax as a reinforcement which also has excellent sound deadening properties enabling us to save space by limiting the use of insulation. Minimising local emissions is a key aim of the Baltic 68 Café Racer and the choice of a 30kW electric engine which also has the ability to hydro generate through her free-wheeling propeller while sailing, reduces emissions to virtual nil, with no fossil fuels being burned and no noise pollution.Baltic 68 Café Racer comes with a range extender which can be used to charge the Lithium-ion battery bank as a ‘get you home’ supplement to battery capacity. The range extender uses highly efficient micro-turbine technology which will eventually be able to run on hydrogen. Power consumption and in this yacht it’s down by 30% for one of the most demanding domestic services – air conditioning. The system mixes re-circulated, less humid air with fresh air to reduce the amount of power.Building will commence this Spring and delivery is expected in Summer 2021.
