The one and only BIONIC ELK. Perhaps the most striking of the modern generation of Baltic Yachts. Built regardless of cost and arguably the ultimate day/weekender of all. Lots of recent refit expenditure leaves her in sparkling shape and ready for her next owner. A great opportunity to acquire an icon of modern yachting.
Baltic 56 no 1 hull "BIONIC ELK" is certainly a full out example of maximum flexibility. The deck and interior layouts are 100% custom, tailor designed and styled by Judel/Vrolijk to suit the clients’ wishes. The technology level is extremely high utilizing pre-preg carbon laminates, foam sandwich in the hull with honeycomb sandwich in the deck laminates and in general the technology is taken to the highest level.
The boat is furthermore equipped with a canting keel system allowing the keel to swing 40 degrees to each side boosting the sailing stability without making the boat heavy.On our previous canting keel 78 footer Super Baltic 5, we used a canard forward, but this time the 56 no. 1 had twin dagger boards. The dagger boards are more effective since they are further back hence lessening the up and down movement, they are designed with asymmetric foil shape giving better lift drag ratios and additionally they are closer to vertical when sailing also making them more effective
BALTIC YACHTS OVERVIEW:
Baltic Yachts was founded 35 years ago in 1973 by five men looking to build superior yachts – or superyachts - that would give them the edge over their competitors. Baltic Yachts is now one of the leading names in custom and semi-custom made luxury yachts for sale.
The Baltic Yachts Ltd yard is located in a village called Bosund on the West coast of Finland. Here they have developed excellent facilities for building their yachts.
The first yacht built by Baltic Yachts Ltd was the Baltic 46 in 1974. Since then they have built custom and semi-custom built yachts for sale in all sizes from 38ft to 152ft.
RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean” (or Cat B – whichever is appropriate)
Hull is built in advanced composite construction using Epoxy infused vacuum bagged sandwich laminates that are post-cured in order to achieve optimum characteristics and strength.
Main reinforcements in all laminates are unidirectional and multi-axial Carbon.
Hull outer skin incorporates layers of Aramid fibres for added impact resistance and safety.
Hull colour: Jaramabeige, metallic
W.L. colour: Silver, metallic
Main chain plates fully in composite. Incorporated into the Bulkheads and hull lay-ups. Composite chain plates fitted with bushings and easy removable stainless steel pins.
Engine beds incorporated in hull, built up of laminate around a PVC foam core. Special care is taken to ensure a rigid foundation and correct bonding using Yanmars own engine bed for sail drive version
Deck & Superstructure Construction:
Deck is built in advanced composite construction using Epoxy vacuum bagged sandwich laminates that are post-cured in order to achieve optimum characteristics and strength.
Main reinforcements in all laminates are unidirectional and multi-axial Carbon.
High loaded areas strengthened with additional laminate or/and C-plates.
Pre-preg deck laminate with Nomex sandwich.
Teak deck on side decks, cockpit floors and seats and on the coamings.
The teak is epoxy glued to the FRP deck using vacuum bagging technique.
No screws and plugs used except for the in the centre pieces and the outboard parts.
The teak deck is a structural part of the deck hence laminate can be reduced in the teak decked areas in order to minimise weight.
