Hull number 7 of 11 Bill Tripp & Vismara designed Baltic 50 semi-custom performance blue water cruisers. Benefitting for a big refit in 2014 with new decks and paint, Baltic 50_07 is 100% ready to go.
Sailors will recognize in the Baltic 50 the continuation of the Baltic tradition, the combination of quality, style and commitment to performance. The profile in a glance has the dramatic Baltic heritage yet reveals something of an advanced hull form.
Baltic yachts have always distinguished themselves as being not only very high quality yachts, but as high performance, racing and cruising yachts. By utilizing top materials, construction techniques, and equipment it is now possible to design a strong, light, sophisticated design with a nicely appointed interior that has all of the polished sailing characteristics of a top grand prix boat.
Modern sailboat design is in continual development, and the sport has witnessed tremendous improvements in speed and sea keeping. The performance is by virtue of subtle hull shaping and a balance of power. The band of their performance is widened. A modern hull is far different than anything that has gone before, and the fine bows and broad transoms do not dive by the bow, nor get excessive helm as we have learned the best shapes for speed and balance. The really modern boats are superb boats to race and sail, and can take any weather, as the improvements in the boats have directed more toward performance than rating. RThe boats are no longer digging holes in the water as they heel or increase speed and then falling into them. Our new boats sail on the water not through it.
The carbon rig and bulb keel combine for a very low centre of gravity, giving the satisfaction of sail carrying capacity on a light boat. The light boat eases the forces needed to go forward. The boat slips along rather than dragging the ocean. The large sail plan makes the boat very easily driven in light air, as a large amount of racing is in these conditions.
For the cruiser/racer the rig is a masthead rig with swept spreaders. The advantage of this is that the boat handing is very easy. The rig is high performance yet fool proof without the complication of runners.
BALTIC YACHTS OVERVIEW:
Baltic Yachts was founded 35 years ago in 1973 by five men looking to build superior yachts – or superyachts - that would give them the edge over their competitors. Baltic Yachts is now one of the leading names in custom and semi-custom made luxury yachts for sale.
The Baltic Yachts Ltd yard is located in a village called Bosund on the West coast of Finland. Here they have developed excellent facilities for building their yachts.
