Here, in Stamford CT, is a well maintained, well updated 1978 Baltic 37 with a 2003 Volvo 2030 diesel and 2003 Volvo 120 Sail Drive, in the water and for sale.

Baltic Yachts built 51 Baltic 37’s between 1978 and 1983 in Finland. C&C designed the lightweight fully cored Baltic 37 as an IOR one tonner, a racing complement to the Swan Yacht’s line up. The Baltic 37’s were competitive boats then and are surprising competitive boat today.

Despite the IOR concessions, this Baltic 37 is a comfortable family cruiser with berths for eight, a good functioning galley, a reasonably sized head, and a great sailing cockpit. Many of us raised on Long Island Sound understand the advantages of a cruising boat that has the ability to move along when the winds are light. This boat will thrill the cruising sailor with pedigree performance and provide comfortable accommodations for the whole family. Large and comfortable enough to cruise the coast from Cape May to Maine, she is also equipped to make an impulse trip to Halifax or Bermuda. All options are open.

While the current owner enjoys IOR racing and has set up the boat accordingly, the new owner may well be a family cruiser with…maybe a little ambition to show up boys at the local club races. This Baltic 37 is in good condition and in the water, ready to go at a moment’s notice. She is nicely maintained and fully found. A recent survey is available.
