Design 2517 - Baltic 64

Baltic Yachts of Finland was formed by a group of ex-Nautor Swan boat builders in 1973. The Baltic 64 was introduced in 1988 and was designed in conjunction with Baltic's chief designer, Tor Hinders. Sparkman & Stephens was responsible for the naval architecture and the design of the hull shape, appendages and sail plan.

The hull is constructed using a custom hybrid kevlar/fiberglass fabric over an aircraft balsa core and vacuum bagged using an Epoxy resin system. Weight control throughout all facets of construction has been a priority for Baltic throughout their history.

Five boats were built between 1988 and 1997.

Here are the plans. Two interior arrangements were offered as well as two deck configurations with minimal differences (cruising and racing).

And some interior images.

  1. The dorade boxes on the transom are unique. The twin cockpits look great with her length, though I hope they are shallow.
