Win-Win situation - Speed, style, cruising comfort and modern technology - Baltic 108, christened WINWIN.

WINWIN is a high-tech cruiser/racer constructed in prepreg carbon composite designed by Javier Jaudenes. The yacht was developed for cruising with a lot of comforts and a small crew but also for racing on regattas.

WINWIN has a draft of meters but thanks to a lifting keel she can also visit shallow waters. Another underwater feature is a retractable propulsion system to reduce water resistance. A refinement of the system first used on the Baltic 147, Visione, the fixed propeller has been optimized, resulting in lower fuel consumption and a quieter engine, whilst also proving more effective during reversing maneuvers.

The yacht has been developed to meet the requirements of the DNV Hull structure verification 1A1 classification.

The sleek superstructure encapsulates a long deck saloon, seamlessly connected to a single-level cockpit via the push button retractable glass bulkhead. This bulkhead drops down discreetly, ensuring an uninterrupted transition between interior and exterior. The spacious cockpit features a sunbathing platform on either side and provides an excellent area for fast, efficient maneuvers while racing, and a large enough space for enjoying al fresco dining. The aft crew entrance ensures quietness and owner’s privacy.

Interior of WINWIN

The modern and functional interior comes from the boards of Design Unlimited. and offers six cabins. The forward section is mostly taken up by an exceptionally generous master suite comprising of a large, full-width cabin with en-suite shower room, and a study and owners’ lounge stretching down the port side complete with desk, three-sided settee and ample storage. Facing that across the center line is a Pullman cabin for the owners to use when passage making, demonstrating that this yacht is intended for serious sailing.

The deck saloon is a well-proportioned seating and entertaining area with plenty of light, not least as a result of the retracting glass bulkhead that leads out to the cockpit center aft section of the boat includes two twin guest cabins each with en-suite, plus a fully-equipped galley, crew mess with navigation station, and two Pullman cabins providing high-quality accommodation for up to four crew. In keeping with the brief for a light, minimalist finish, the interior uses washed and limed oak veneers for the floors and interior joinery, while white high-gloss painted lacquered overheads aid in reflecting light throughout. Concealed light panels help maintain the atmosphere of clean simplicity.

The magazines Superyacht News and The Superyacht Owner sat down with the owner Kim Schindelhauer and the designer for an interview.
