Baltic 117 ‘Perseverance’ | A modern classic with a sustainable touch.

Recently launched and already capturing the hearts of many, Perseverance is a custom classic sloop designed by Dutch firm Dykstra Naval Architects and built by Baltic Yachts. With timeless pilot cutter-style features, Perseverance boasts a very modern approach to emissions and the environment. The yacht features all of the latest Doyle Sails technology to reduce loads and increase performance, handling efficiencies and weight.

Doyle Sails pioneered the Structured Luff and Cableless technology and continues to lead the fleet in innovation and design. Now shaping the way yachts are designed and built forever. With Structured Luff technology, it allows yachts to extend their sailing range, ultimately requiring fewer sails and Perseverance has taken advantage of just that.

The yacht boasts an inventory that includes a Structured Luff Staysail, J0 and a Cableless A3 alongside their new Doyle Stratis Mainsail, Blade and delivery inventory. With many years of innovation and development in the bank, Doyle Sails continues to design and deliver sails with better performance, speed and handling efficiencies. Significantly less luff sag and reduced loads, create more driving force from greater projection.

All of Perseverance sails are built from Doyle Sails’ premier range of Stratis 1100 – this range provides unmatched performance due to the Carbon and Technora fibres which are used in conjunction with patented resins selected for their long term durability and resistance to stretch.

Every Stratis sail is 100% custom designed to the yacht with the world-renowned Doyle design team working with the integral partners of the Baltic 117 project from the outset to deliver the ultimate sail package that suits the requirements of both the yacht, crew and owner itinerary. Stratis 1100 are Doyle Sails’ lightest, fastest, and strongest sails which are seen on the majority of Superyachts that Doyle powers globally.

Leading the sail production team is Scott Zebny from Doyle Sails Palma, who has specialised in Superyacht sails for a number of years. Doyle Sails Palma is a world class facility and currently one of the largest sail lofts in the area with over 3,000 sqm of floor space – recent projects include J Class’ ‘Endeavour’ and ‘Lionheart’; recently launched Baltic Cafe Racer 68 ‘Pink Gin Verde‘; Supermaxi ‘Leopard 3’; amongst a plethora of both cruising and racing Superyachts.

The Doyle Sails facility is owned and operated by some of the most well known sailors in the industry. In 2018, Doyle Sails International CEO Mike Sanderson, Design Director Richard Bouzaid and Managing Director David Duff went into partnership with Chris Sherlock, Scott Zebny and Luke Molloy.

Molloy, Sherlock and Zebny play a key role in the continued development of the Superyacht shipyard and supplier relationships, ensuring seamless collaboration in a demanding marketplace.

Doyle Sails Palma has established their presence in Palma and are able to offer unique services to their clients, including the manufacture of Doyle sails on site, in Mallorca.
