Designed and built for her current owner and his fourth Baltic Yacht, CAVALLO is an exceptionally well-maintained carbon composite cruising yacht designed by notable naval architects Judel/Vrolijk and built at the Finnish composite specialists – Baltic Yachts. CAVALLO enjoys the build quality of the finest yachts in the world with the advantage of being light and stiff owing to her Carbon Composite structure. Sailing performance and enjoying a good, fast sail are at the heart of this yacht’s ethos. The choice of design, systems, layout and finish are all meant to enhance sailing pleasure.

Always and only a personal and family yacht, CAVALLO’s classic, rich and timeless mahogany interior was the product of John Munford designs to the owner’s wishes. The layout and interior decor – with four (4) double Owner’s/Guest cabins ensuite – are understated and functional allowing light and ventilation while creating an ambiance of comfort in almost any sea conditions. True to the owner’s Scandinavian roots, his accommodation includes a full size Sauna and private access to the aft deck areas. The interior of CAVALLO is quiet, elegant and well suited to offshore passages in comfort, safety and style.

A key factor that influences Mega sailing yacht performance and handling characteristics is the displacement. CAVALLO’s displacement is significantly less than other yachts her size and
this factor allows for faster passages and easier handling.

The hull constructed primarily of Unidirectional Carbon, woven Carbon and Biax Carbon. Layer of Kevlar woven fibers used in the outer skin of the hull laminate for added impact resistance.

The sandwich material used is aircraft grade End-Grain-Balsa above water line, with Core Cell below water line.

Main structural bulkheads are built up of Pre-preg Carbon laminates on a Core-Cell / Nomex / Balsa sandwich construction. Bulkheads are manufactured on a heated pressure table.

The yacht is divided into 5 water tight compartments: forepeak, forward accommodation, engine and winch room, aft accommodation and lazarette.

External Bulb-type lifting keel. The shape of the keel has been developed with the emphasis of lowering the ballast center-of-gravity as much as possible without adding drag or decreasing lift. Lowering and lifting of the keel is by means of a hydraulic cylinder recessed into the keel-fin and attached to a strong beam at the top of the keel box using bearings and keel position locking devices. The keel structure is designed for two positions, fully up and fully down.

The cantilevered semi-elliptical balanced spade rudder is molded from Epoxy/Carbon laminates around Core-Cell foam.

Opening transom hydraulic hatch/platform includes dinghy storage, swimming ladder, dinghy fueling system. The transom hatch has teak on the inside to work as a swim platform when deployed. There is a roller device for easy launching and loading of the dingy. The hatch is designed to take the dinghy load on rollers and pulled in by winch into the garage for secure storage. The transom has a swimming platform with recessed steps on both sides. Steps and platform covered with teak. The transom hatch is opened by hydraulic cylinders and hinges installed between deck and transom joint.



The deck is built off a male plug. The laminates are vacuum bagged to achieve the best possible strength and resin ratio. The deck is constructed primarily of Unidirectional Carbon, woven Carbon and Biax Carbon. The resin used in the laminate is a high-grade Epoxy resin. The deck laminates system is prepreg carbon.

Sprayhoods cover the main and aft entrances. A small sprayhood for bad weather conditions and a large one for more protection in the tropics. The sprayhoods are made of waterproof and sun resistant canvas. Sprayhood storage, in down position, recessed in deck. Bimini top above helmsman’s seats and instruments securely fixed to deck to stay in place when sailing.

Sun awning on either side of the main boom, covering the deckhouse and the cockpit. Furled in and out on a tube. Teak deck on sidedecks, cockpit floors, seats, on the coamings and on the pilot housetop. The teak is epoxy glued to the deck using vacuum bagging technique. No screws and plugs used except for the in the king planks and margin boards. Original thickness of teak deck was approx 12 mm, and on pilothouse top was 9 mm. Approximate current teak thickness is 8-9mm.

The centre cockpit has port and stbd “U” seating areas and has one smaller table on starboard and one large on portside. The table base in white composite. The base has a nice cooler built in box with opening access from center cockpit passage. Canvas storage cover for the table. Style for the cockpit table drawn by John Munford design. Cockpit cushions with closed cell foam.

Pilothouse Windows are fixed and made of laminated hardened glass securely attached and sealed off to the deck.

A “soft patch” for the engine removal in the saloon floor as well in the deck roof.
