Grabau International is delighted to announce the listing of the simply stunning 2006 Baltic Yachts 56 ‘WHISPER’.
Launched in 2006 as arguably the highest-specified example of the semi-custom Judel Vrolijk Baltic 56 line, WHISPER is the epitome of elegance and effortless performance. Set up with a powerful, yet easily managed push-button rig, WHISPER can be easily controlled from her helm. Her large single cockpit is perfect for entertaining and this is matched below decks with a versatile interior layout with owner’s cabin forward and guest cabins aft. A further crew cabin can be found in the forepeak.
WHISPER has so many highlights to her build and few words can express to quality of design and construction of this yacht. With an initial build costing the current equivalent of Euro 3 million, WHISPER is a truly special yacht. Her primary features include:-
Carbon composite construction
Hydraulic lift keel
Full push-button rig with inboom furling, genoa furling, code sail furler and staysail furler
Carbon fibre mast, boom and standing rigging
Single cockpit layout with flush decks
Teak interior with owner’s cabin forward and converting twin double aft cabins. Ensuite heads for all accommodation cabins.
Crew cabin in the forepeak
North Sails wardrobe with recent updates
Volvo D130 5-cylinder engine
Full Domotic systems controls at helms and at chart table
Extensive B&G instrument package with 5x mast-mounted repeaters
No. 4 of the Baltic 56’s was the first one that was built with a lifting keel.
The concept with this project was to create a yacht that was easy to sail short handedly. All major sail and boat handling functions were operated by a ‘push-button system’. Also keeping the displacement light was one of the most important factors in the process of creating an easy handling yacht.
The lifting keel, reducing her draft from 3,6 to 2,4m, enabled a deeper sailing draft hence a lighter keel-bulb for a given stability. This plus the usage of vacuum infused laminates, carbon sandwich interior panels etc. resulted in weight savings that undoubtedly compensated for some of the cruising items included in the specification.
