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 and they are now one of the leading names in custom and semi-custom made luxury yachts for sale. The yard is located in a village called Bosund on the West coast of Finland. Here they have developed excellent facilities for building their yachts.
The first yacht built was the Baltic 46 in 1974. Since then they have built custom and semi-custom built yachts for sale in all sizes from 38ft to 152ft. The Baltic 43 was the second serial production model from a co-operation with Judel/Vrolik as Naval Architects. Judel/Vrolik had at this time been successful on the racing scene with similar yachts including Admirals Cup contenders like 'Container'.
The B43 was developed using experience from these successful racing projects combined with Baltic Yachts known capability in building light constructions. Detailed weight studies were carried out in order to establish a light but still realistic and achievable displacement.
The styling, deck and interior layout was done by our own designers. the interior incorporated the already well known double centre berth owners cabin. the B43 also allowed more flexibility in layouts giving clients greater opportunity to customize their yachts.
Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from CE Confirmity as she was in use in the EEA prior to June 1998.
