However, it would be wrong to call this Superbaltic 78 a “bare regatta machine”. There is an abundance of teak not just on deck, where it has been laid using the vacuum epoxy technique habitually used by the Finnish boatyard for years now, but also on the interiors, with their harmonious, welcoming feel and host of accessories. From bow to stern, the layout is: a crew cabin with independent access, two guest cabins with double bed and own bathroom, dinette with course plotting area and galley. The double master cabin is amidships and enjoys a large bathroom with shower cabin and desk/dressing table. Aft, and accessible from the work cockpit, is the skipper’s cabin, starboard and on the port side, the third guest cabin, each with own bathroom. The deck, with two cockpits, is laid out with aluminium custom winches, the main ones being electrically powered – for the mainsheet and the Genoa halyards. The wheels, like their columns, are in carbon, while most of the fittings are titanium.
