Since 1973 - High performance yachts combining safety and easy handling.

Baltic Yachts is today a well-known builder of high performance sailing boats that are exclusive, tailor-made dream yachts of high quality material. We build semi-custom (ranging from 50 to 66 feet) and full custom yachts up to 200 feet, and our business vision is to be one of the leading boat building companies in the world.

In order to build light and strong yachts we utilize the latest high-tech materials and methods, but we are also pioneers in research and development.

We are an independent company firmly rooted in Ostrobothnia on the west coast of Finland where the skilful people working at our yard have a huge knowledge of boat building and can make almost any sailing dream come true. This is a heritage based on local boat building traditions spanning as far back as the early 13th century. All this helps create the special Baltic Family spirit, a unique spirit which is well-known to all our customers, partners and friends.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Baltic 43 is a sloop-rigged IOR-IMS racer - cruiser. The hull is balsa core fiberglass sandwich construction to the highest specification using fiberglass mat, unidirectional roving and mat-roving combination to develop an extremely rigid yet light and well-insulated structure. Unidirectional roving is a special developed E-glass - aramid (Kevlar) hybrid to improve impact resistance, strength and safety of the construction. High-grade resin is used in the lamination process to create an extremely strong high-tech laminate. Taking advantage of modern lightweight construction techniques and fiber technology enables a higher ballast-displacement ratio, which gives better performance and seaworthiness. The new, rounded keel shape is based on extensive tank testing and practical tests on one-off racing yachts. Keel performance is optimized. The new keel shape has a higher lift-drag ratio than a conventional fin type keel, and a lower centre of gravity, increasing stability without adding ballast weight. Shorter cord lengths at top and tip improve laminar flow and lower drag. The mast is a three-spreader racing-cruising type. Spar is made from aluminum alloy as a hollow, oval section and provided with aluminum airfoil spreaders. Available in two interior configurations. Joinery work is to the highest standard. All joinery is teak-faced, with solid teak or laminated teak frames and cappings. The joinery is varnished throughout. Visible surfaces are varnished and hand-rubbed to obtain a satin type surface.
