Recently confirmed dockside rumors have it that the famous Baltic 130 My Song, owned by the passionate sailor Pierluigi Loro Piana and designed by Reichel/Pugh and Nauta Design has suffered damage while being transported from the Caribbean to the Med for the upcoming regatta season.
Details of the exact circumstances of the accident are still vague and more news will follow, but images from a currently uncredited source show the mastless yacht semi submerged in open water.
The most likely scenario for this very unfortunate accident is that the yacht came loose and fell off the cargo ship that was transporting her. Her exact whereabouts are still unknow and her future is unclear, but we certailnly hope to see her sailing and winning again.
(from the Baltic yachts' official website) The Baltic 130 My Song is a state of the art, multi-role custom superyacht combining performance and light displacement with a stunning contemporary interior providing an immensely comfortable cruising platform. Since the delivery in 2016 My Song has won several awards and was judged best yacht at World Superyacht Awards.
Naval architects Reichel/Pugh used the latest design programs to produce a seriously high-performance sailing yacht while Nauta Design was responsible for the overall styling, deck and interior design. My Song took 22 months to build and was launched on time despite design changes, modifications and the installation of a new propulsion system.
This all carbon yacht features interchangeable mainsails for cruising or racing and Baltic’s latest retractable propulsion system which rotates though 180 degrees to double as a stern thruster and a keel fin more akin to maxi raceboat design. The Baltic 130 custom’s plumb bow and wide transom exploit the speed benefits of a long waterline and powerful stern sections to meet the owner’s demands for a really effective race boat.
The interior accommodation is for six to eight guests including the owner, the focal point being a spectacular deck saloon with hull and superstructure ports, plus skylights providing panoramic outboard views.
