Baltic Yachts have developed a new version of their Retractable Propulsion System (RPS) in conjunction with propeller experts Hundested. The revolutionary new system combines the ability to retract the propeller for increased performance with rotation through 90 degrees enabling it to double as a stern thruster.
I have been sailing all my life, from dinghy racing to Trimaran Orma 60 and currently I am racing on the J 145 Double Take in the Pacific Northwest. As a Business and Marketing student I am working for a Yacht brokerage in Seattle: Swiftsure Yachts. As a sailor I believe that the journey matter even more than the destination. “A ship is safe in a harbour, but that’s not what a ship are made for.”
