Finnish luxury yacht builder Baltic Yachts launched PINK GIN VI (Baltic 175) - with a length of 54m the largest carbon fiber sloop to date in the world.

Pink Gin VI is the successor of the 46m Pink Gin. Her elegant exterior lines with a plumb bow and long stern overhang are a creation by the Germany-based studio judel/vrolijk & co. They also did the naval architecture. The interior comes from the boards of Design Unlimited.

The owner of Baltic’s flagship is Professor Hans Georg Näder – an experienced sailor who won the New Zealand Millenium Cup in 2007 and is a shareholder of Baltic with 80 % since 2013.

The yacht features a 68m carbon fiber mast and performance boom by Dutch company Rondal. Carbo-Link from Switzerland delivered the rigging equipment.

A not very often seen feature: She has two openings in the hull as balconies respectively terraces. One is forward at the owners’ area on the starboard side; the other one is amidships on the port side with direct access to the main salon. Apropos owner’s suite, this area also features a separate dressing room and a study. Five guest cabins with ensuite bathroom are also a part of the yacht.

PINK GIN VI Interior

Statement by Mark Tucker, Director of Design Unlimited

“Working on Pink Gin VI has been a great and exciting challenge.  The new yacht is not so much an evolution of the previous Pink Gin, but a revolution in design; a superyacht that reflects the personality and passions of the owner.

It’s been a six-year journey that has pushed the boundaries of design to create a tactile interior that unites international art, fashion and experience.

Design Unlimited paid specific attention to partnering the exterior deck spaces with the interior.  The result is a seamless transition, perfectly attuned to the al fresco lifestyle of superyacht ownership. 

Pink Gin VI is not just a superyacht, she is a statement of individuality and creativity.”

PINK GIN VI got the Neptune Statue in the category “Sailing Yachts 50m and Above” at the World Superyacht Awards 2018.
