This 83 foot performance cruiser was the first custom project by Baltic Yachts in cooperation with Sparkman & Stephens. The naval architecture, hull keel and rudder lines were from S & S. Interior, and deck styling was by Baltic Yachts own design office.
There was a lot of joint work on weight and structural calculations. The main goal was for a comfortable, fast and safe world cruising yacht that would have her home base in the Mediterranean. For easy handing she had in mast furling mainsail.
The current owner purchased the yacht in 2005.
In 2005-6 the yacht was fully refitted at Monaco marine in Cogolin (France). Works included; interior changes to aft and guest cabins, new teak deck, hull painting, mast painting and rig check, new gen set, new electronics, new tanks, and systems (water-maker, air-conditioning, navigation equipment, etc.), new mainsail….and more!
The boat is maintained by a permanent skipper who keeps her in great shape.
