Hull No.9 the last of the Baltic 47’s. Originally fitted out for effortless short-handed fast blue water cruising, more recently used for occasional club racing and weekending. A true ‘do-it-all’ yacht from the very best in the business.
The very last of the Vroljk and R & J designed Baltic 47’s, CLEMENTINE boasts a modern, practical and easily-managed single-cockpit arrangement with all primary control lines led aft to the companionway. Below decks, she has a similarly modern three-cabin, two heads layout with master cabin forward and two guest cabins aft. Her large saloon area also incorporates a generous forward-facing chart table and a large U-shaped galley. Below the waterline, her 2.45m keel offers a great compromise between performance and cruising practicality.
Originally launched as ‘OCEAN PEARL’ and later named ‘CLAJASAN’, CLEMENTINE has always benefitted from caring owners and her program of refit and upgrades has been continuous. Most recently sold before she even hit the open market by Grabau International to her current owner in late 2016 after her previous owner stepped up to a larger Baltic and her current owner looked to move upwards from his beautifully refitted Baltic 35, CLEMENTINE has since undergone a further comprehensive programme of refit to make her 100% ready to go. Having enjoyed two seasons of fantastic sailing in the Mediterranean, her owner now wishes to move on to fresh projects so once more, we are able to offer an opportunity to acquire this very special yacht.
For those looking for a modern, fast, well-mannered sub 50ft cruising yacht, with ocean cruising or regatta-winning capabilities there simply is no better yacht out there. The Baltic represents the very finest in yacht construction and design and CLEMENTINE is the ultimate incarnation of this ethos within her size bracket.

The Baltic 47 was a good example of the traditional Baltic Yachts´ philosophy of a light to medium displacement design for optimum performance and easy handling.
The laminates were of a sandwich construction in combination with special unidirectional fibres resulting in a light, reliable and long lasting construction.
The Baltic 47 offered large opportunities for customization of the interior, deck, laminates, keels etc., which allowed clients to make their very own personal ideas a part of the final product. For clients who looked for the opportunity of sailing in shallow water areas, special keels were designed and built.
For more performance minded owners who wanted to go in the opposite direction, we used deeper high performance keels and utilized the available building technology to reach lighter construction weights etc.
BALTIC YACHTS OVERVIEW:
In 1973 five young men left Nautor Swan to start their own business. Their aim was to build the finest sailing boats in the world and to achieve this they employed a group of indigenous craftsmen from the Bosund region of Finland. Top quality and comfortable cruising yachts with racing potential were the main ingredients of what they set out to achieve. Importantly, they recognised that building yachts with lighter displacement than competing products would not only increase performance, but also make life easier and more enjoyable for their clients. They did this by using materials and manufacturing technology never previously seen in boat building.
Baltic Yachts is now one of the leading names in custom and semi-custom luxury yachts.
RCD Status: The yacht meets the requirements of the EC Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) with Boat design category: A (Ocean).
FRP sandwich construction to the highest specification, using unidirectional roving combining Kevlar and glass fibres and high-grade resin to produce an extremely rigid yet light and well insulated structure.
The core material is aircraft-grade Balsa, type CK57 which is lighter than standard balsa.
The resin used in the laminates is a modified Isophthalic polyester with higher impact strength, toughness, elongation to break (more crack resistance), and higher water resistance than conventionally used resins.
All high stress areas are strengthened with unidirectional roving orientated in the direction of the stress.
Transverse floors and longitudinal stringers are made up of unidirectional roving and fabmat around a low-density PVC foam core.
Hull is painted white with blue stripes
Full sanding of hull and reapplication of 3 layers of top quality epoxy primer and new sprayed antifouling to leave the hull pristine - 2017
Deck & Superstructure Construction:
Teak decks on fibreglass with balsa core for stiffening and insulation. High density core reinforcement in winch and fittings mounting areas. Bonded to the hull with layers of roving and through bolted.
Chain Plates are stainless steel through bolted to longitudinal or transverse bulkheads, which are securely bonded to the hull and deck. Backing plates are fitted to spread loads. Chain plates are grounded to a keel bolt for lightning protection.
Keel & Rudder:
External fin keel, cast to high accuracy, in lead strengthened with antimony. The keel is through bolted to the hull with cast-in stainless steel bolts.
Cantilevered, semi-elliptical balanced spade rudder. The rudder stock passes through self-aligning roller bearings and a stuffing box strongly bonded to the hull.
Lower rudder bearing replaced 2017
Engine & gearbox:
Yanmar 4JH2 –TE diesel, 62 hp, 2001 – producing 62hp @ 3,600rpm.

CLEMENTINE’s power management setup is designed to keep the weight loadings down (an advantage of the Baltic concept is good performance in light airs) and yet provide ample electricity for live-aboard purposes. The combination of a large battery bank, 24v power, two alternators, a smart regulator and input point for additional solar/wind or water generator (not found to be necessary as yet) provides a simple, lightweight and effective alternative to a generator.
