SY ‘Hetairos’ completes her sea trials...

Recent Launches

The Baltic Yachts-built 67m ‘Panamax’ ketch will soon compete in various big-boat regattas.


SY Hetairos, the Baltic Yachts-built 66.7m (219ft) ‘Project Panamax’ has successfully completed her sea trials. Her design features a plumb bow, long bowsprit, a traditional sheer line and gloriously long counter. Obviously a lot of attention has been given to the classic styling, but make no mistake this is a thoroughly modern high-performance yacht. That hull is cored carbonfibre and her interior is cored to keep the weight as low as possible.
She will be taking part in various international regattas and events from September. Expect her to do well!
