First look: Baltic Café Racer

Rupert Holmes takes a look at the recently launched Baltic Café Racer, a powerful and quick daysailer with green credentials

Baltic Yachts has been responsible for some of the world’s most iconic yachts of the past five years, including the 142ft Canova, which is fitted with DSS foils, the 175ft Pink Gin and the 130ft My Song. The Finnish yard’s latest creation the, Baltic Café Racer is a 68ft daysailer, and is no less spectacular as it’s a cutting edge design that looks to the future by using environmentally friendly solutions throughout.

The concept for the Baltic Café Racer is based on a very clear vision: the name stems from the pared down motorbikes of 1960s London that were optimised for a single task: conveying their riders impressively quickly from one venue to the next.

The result is a design that excels in many respects and stands out in an increasingly crowded market place.
