The hull of MM341, has been released from the moulds at Baltic Yachts – a significant milestone in the build schedule of this 34m sloop-rigged superyacht.

Now able to hold its own form, the composite hull for the new Liara no longer needs the support of the tooling.

Designed for an experienced owner with worldwide cruising and the occasional foray onto the racecourse in mind, the yacht will feature Baltic Yachts’ retractable propulsion system, enhancing speed and manoeuvrability whilst sailing.

“I am delighted to see Liara taking shape at Baltic Yachts and to see her hull released from the mould, ready for the outfitting stage, is particularly exciting” commented designer Malcolm McKeon. “The design and build adheres to strict weight targets and thanks to the work of the dedicated team, we’re progressing on time and on target.”

Weight saving, achieved through her advanced carbon composite construction using foam and Nomex cores, was an important part of the design process.

Her generous sail plan features a square top mainsail and her deep draft, telescopic lifting keel and high righting moment configuration, will combine to produce a lively performance from this highly-tuned cruising yacht when she competes in regattas.
