Baltic 78 "LUPA OF LONDON"

SY Lupa of Londen was the first yacht to be fitted a carbon Hall Spars mast combined with SCR (solid carbon rod) rigging with a streamlined airfoil shape. Fully equipped with our AutoLocks and accompanied by a vast array of all-round Equiplite deck and running rigging hardware. This Baltic 78 is arguably one of the most hi-tech, high performance canting keel cruiser/racers ever constructed at Baltic Yachts.

The concept, layouts, styling, material and equipment selection etc. are the result of over one years work in close cooperation with the owner. The result is an extremely modern, high-tech and high performance yacht with a canting keel, but also with the best of comfort for cruising. Developments from its work in the Grand Prix race arena.


All-round Equiplite deck and running rigging hardware featuring a special combination between a Fredriksen jib car with a custom Equiplite block on top. The latest developments in AutoLock technology were also employed for Code 0, Hanging jib, and Mainsail.

Our focus:

A few of the main improvements here when a combine with AutoLock and Equiplite include a lower initial investment, a significant reduction of compression in the mast, a lower weight count and less creep ( construction stretch ) while accessibility for maintenance and sail changes has been made easier.
