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 company is based in the United States of America at Rhode Island however 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.
The first yacht built by Baltic Yachts Ltd 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.
Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from CE Confirmity as she was in use in the EEA prior to June 1998.
FRP sandwich construction to the highest specification, using unidirectional rovings and high grade resin to develop an extremely rigid yet light and well insulated structure.
End Grain Balsa is used as core material in the sandwich laminate. This in combination with a specially developed unidirectional roving creates a very rigid, strong and light construction.
A high grade resin is used in the lamination process to create an extremely strong high-tech laminate.
The combination of sandwich construction, unidirectional fibres and hybrid epoxy resin will make the yacht lighter and last longer. The lighter the yacht is, the more ballast it can carry for a given displacement. Thanks to this, the performance will be better and the yacht will be safer and easier to handle.
All high stress areas are specially strengthened with a build up of unidirectional roving orientated in the direction of the stress.
Transverse floors and longitudinal stringers are made up of a unidirectional roving and fabmat around a low density PVC foam core. There are limber holes in floors to allow drainage to sump.
Main structural bulkheads are built up of marine plywood. Visible surfaces are teak faced.
Stainless steel through bolted to longitudinal or transverse bulkheads, which are securely bonded to the hull and deck. Plates are provided with backing plates to spread loads adequately. Chain plates are grounded to a keel bolt for lightning protection.
Incorporated in hull, built up of ud-roving and fabmat around a PVC foam core. Special care is taken to ensure a rigid foundation and correct bonding.
Fabricated aluminium alloy mast step bolted to re-inforced floors and stringers.
Deep keel bilge. Access provided as practical to the bilge. There are limber holes in the floor frames to allow drainage to the sump.
Deck & Superstructure Construction:
Hand laid-up moulded Fiberglas with Divinycell foam core for stiffening and insulation and a high density core re-inforcement incorporated in the mounting areas of winches and fittings.
The deck has a high strength/weight ratio and is bonded to the hull with layers of roving.
The deck is through bolted to the hull.
Teak decks including cockpit and coamings (new 2010)
Toerail to be in teak. T-track recessed on top of toerail, aft of mast, for multi-purpose sheet take-off points. Stainless steel stanchion bases with strong eyes for sheet take-off points.
A pulpit and pushpit of best quality stainless steel tube are mounted on the bow and transom. Double life lines are installed passing through stainless steel stanchions.
The life lines are of stainless steel wire and set up with turnbuckles at the after end.
The pulpit is fitted with navigation lights and the pushpit with a stern light.
The height of pulpits, stanchions, spacing distance etc. conform to O.R.C. requirements.
Stainless steel handrail for main companionway is provided. Best quality marine standard hardware and fastenings used throughout.
Liferaft stowage provided in aft cockpit locker.
Keel & Rudder:
External fin keel, cast to high accuracy, in lead with added antimony.
New, bulb-type, keel shape developed, based on extensive tank testing and practical tests on one-off racing yachts. Keel performance is optimised.
The lower center of gravity gives higher stability with added speed and power but also makes the boat easier to handle. Lower center of gravity also increases the boats resistance against knock downs hence making the boat safer and adds seaworthiness.
The keel is through bolted to the hull by cast-in stainless steel keel bolts
The cantilevered semi-elliptical balanced spade rudder is moulded from Fiberglas and filled with PVC-foam. Foam filling under high pressure in special strengthened mould.
The rudder stock is made of high strength, S-glass - Epoxy construction using "Vacu-Press" manufacturing system. The rudder stock is is tapered and dimensioned to the corresponding bending moments in order to minimise weight. The rudder stock passes through self aligning roller bearings and a stuffing box which is strongly bonded to the hull.
