Baltic 87’ Shaya is a remarkable fast high performance yacht, she won the Superyacht Cup once and still does above 14 knots with ease. Perfect yacht for long distant cruising with 5 guest cabins and one crew cabin, each with ensuite bathroom and shower.
She was fitted with every conceivable appliance for the ultimate luxury cruising. Her special ‘James Bond’ features make her even more interesting: hydraulic hardtop, lifting keel and the ‘drive in’ dinghy garage, where an ingenious folding deck/transom arrangement enables a water jet dinghy to be driven right up into the back of the boat.
Baltic yachts are the world’s leading builder of advanced compound yachts. Their highly skilled workforce uses leading edge marine technology and traditional craftsmanship to construct award-winning yachts. Each yacht is special, in a class of its own quality and performance.
They have a respected and impressive reputation for building a new variety of multi-role yachts performing to the highest standards both as luxury cruisers and successful racing yachts competing on the global super yacht regatta circuit.
The Baltic 87 is described as ‘ahead of her time’. She was fitted with every possible appliance for ultimate luxury cruising. This could have been a heavy boat, but she has vacuum-bagged epoxy construction, so her displacement stays within very acceptable levels.
Her modern lifting keel system was a big step into the future, as was the “James Bond” style dinghy garage where a custom folding deck/transom arrangement enables a water jet dinghy to be driven right up into the back of the boat. That was another example of Baltic’s innovative thinking and engineering.
She has a good amount of deck space in the front that is followed by her protected cockpit. When you step out on deck, she has a beautiful seating area surrounded by a table that fits up to 10 guests. The table houses a 24V chiller. The solid carbon hardtop covering this cockpit, which deploys hydraulically from a nested position on the pilothouse, where it is invisible during sailing passages. It provides plenty of shade, and is also extendable towards the helm, for lovely dinners out at sea. Aft, above the dinghy garage, there are spacious sunbeds to enjoy the summer breeze on anchor.
As you step below deck, you are brought into the spacious pilothouse saloon, with lots of daylight. Her protected interior cockpit with her complete helm station you will find forward to port, a comprehensively equipped navigation station with full visibility. On the same site there is a large dinette, with fixed seating outboard and three hi/low custom swivel seats inboard.
