Baltic 130’ Custom My Song, Nauta Design’s sailing yacht flagship, and the fourth unit for the same repeat owner, represents the fourth collaboration with Baltic Yachts. Nauta Design created the general concept, the exterior and interior design, while hull lines, sail plan and appendages are drawn by Reichel/Pugh who were also responsible for the structural engineering, together with composite experts Gurit for some selected components.
Crossbow is the fifth unit in the successful SW102 miniseries and the third in the Raised Saloon version. Nauta Design is responsible for general arrangement plan, exterior and interior design, while Farr Yacht Design for hull lines, sail plan and appendages and Southern Wind’s own in-house design team for detail design and systems.
On CDM Nauta Air 108’ Narvalo Nauta Design’s aim was to give shape to their vision of a motor yacht defined by the optimized relationship between the interior and the exterior spaces. The top priority was to bring the outdoors “in” by using large glass surfaces and creating spaces where interiors are in harmonious contact with the exterior. A new concept of life on board where indoor and outdoor spaces are a continuum.
Cloud Atlas, originally called Ineke IV, was built in 1990 in Australia at Lloyd Ships as a 130-foot (40-meter) motor yacht.
Nauta worked hardly on this refit in conjunction with Naval Architect Francesco Rogantin and Seven Stars Marina & Shipyard, and designed an extended transom, thus fulfilling the Owner’s target to improve her exterior livability, freeing exterior volume by hosting the tender in a newly built garage.
The yacht, with a 6m extension and 3m on the upper deck, totally changed her look, which now makes her three decades younger.
