The owner of this Magnum 70 called upon Design Unlimited with this exciting opportunity due to our specialist knowledge of advanced lightweight materials and space saving solutions.
Baltic Yachts’ specialist Service & Refit team completed the implementation of this new lightweight interior for the high speed Magnum Marine 70, Pegasus, and the boat was officially handed back to her owner on April 26th 2018 in Palma, Mallorca.
The high performance ‘muscle’ boat, capable of speeds in excess of 60 knots, was built by the iconic Magnum Marine in Florida in 2008 and spent six months at Baltic Yachts’ Palma facility where the entire interior was replaced.
The new design began with Magnum’s bare carbon structure and Design Unlimited utilised white carbon weave, white lacquer and leather to create a minimalist space that accentuated the strong, structural feel of the boat.
“The new interior had to be ultra light and be able to withstand the rigours of high speed power boating, challenges our team and that of Baltic Yachts’ Service and Refit department, were well equipped to meet. We drew a lot of inspiration from the automotive industry, specifically Formula One and you can see accents of this in the finished build.” – Mark Tucker, Design Unlimited.
Design Unlimited also designed the interior’s composite components for production, before their manufacture at Baltic.
The new interior structure was built in Finland, where a full size mock-up was used to ensure a perfect fit. The modules were then transported to Palma for installation, where the original interior had been completely gutted and the new systems had already been linked with the existing engineering.
Managing the refit in Finland was Andreas Wiklund who remained in constant contact with Baltic Yachts’ Palma facility, where Goran Svenlin oversaw the final installation. Andreas said: “This was an exciting project involving an iconic American brand and is a perfect example of how Baltic Yachts’ Jakobstad headquarters can work seamlessly with the Palma base.”
