Wow, that will be the first word out of your mouth when you see this Baltic 43. She is a 1986 Baltic 43 by hull number alone.. She has been completely refit, and by complete I mean everything. She was completed two years ago under the direction of a knowledgable owner and skilled sailor. She has every amenity you could imagine a modern racer cruiser would have, but the difference being that it's in a timeless classic with flowing lines and tradition.

She is as at home on the Chesapeake and she is offshore. Pacific Yacht Management, partnering with FJ Dion Yacht Yard in Salem, MA and Baltic Yachts, set forth a plan from the mind of her owner to make the most incredible yacht of this class. Her keel has been professionally adjusted to allow Bay cruising and racing, while still maintaining her offshore edge, new draft is 5' 6". All equipment is of the best quality, from sails to electronics, from rigging to her machinery, no expense was spared to make her into the perfect racer cruiser. Almost $900,000 was invested into this project, which will be of huge benefit to the new owner, and much of the gear is still under warranty. You could easily do an Annapolis to Newport Race or Bermuda Race, doubled handed or with a full crew. Her sailing gear is easily managed with electric main furling and electric primary and secondary winches. Click on Full Specs to see the list of upgrades.
What is not new has been remade into new. If you're looking for classic lines, head turning looks, sailing pedigree, and unmatched performance then look no further then Who Wander.
