The recently launched Baltic 115’ NIKATA has successfully completed her first Atlantic crossing, reaching thrilling 28,8-knot speeds. She is currently in the Caribbean well in advance of her scheduled regatta debut. The latest sleek and fast all-carbon custom performance racer/cruiser comes from the drawing board of the prestigious superyacht design Nauta Design, in partnership with judel/vrolijk & co.
The dramatically elegant, sleek, silver-hulled 88 ton NIKATA was built by Baltic Yachts for speed and elegance in safety and comfort. Nauta Design were responsible for the general concept, exterior styling and interior design, while naval architects judel/vroljik & co designed the hull and water lines.
Destined for an experienced yachtsman, NIKATA is an innovative and competitive vessel with winning potential. With a pre-preg carbon performance hull and aggressive lines optimized for speed, she boasts a relatively light displacement of 88 tons, a powerful sail plan and notable stability thanks to a lifting keel that extends from 3,65 m to 5,85 m.
Internally, NIKATA offers a light and bright saloon, thanks to top and side windows. There is a professional bar area for relaxing after racing and a comfortable chill-out/TV area for recovering. All fittings and furnishings are in lightweight yet durable composite panels veneered in oak and upholstery and wall panels are in light coloured linen for a style that is simple and pared down yet elegant and soothing to the eye.
The interior layout is composed of a large and elegant Owner’s cabin and three generous guest cabins. Crew areas include a functional and spacious galley, a double cabin for the Captain, two other cabins and a comfortable crew mess. The “Owner forward” layout places all crew and operational areas aft so that crew and guest areas are kept separate and the crew can have quick access from interior to deck and vice versa.
Externally, NIKATA offers huge sunbed areas and the highly innovative fold-out stern platform. This feature was engineered and designed by Nauta and built by Baltic to incorporate a wide set of steps along with a swimming area so that guests can easily reach the main deck and large cockpit. In the stowed position this teak-laid platform seamlessly becomes part of the aft deck.
