A very rare opportunity to acquire one of just four Sparkman & Stephens Baltic 58’s built. True to the Baltic concept in every respect and offering fantastic performance combined with ease of handling. **Photos from September 2018**
This model represented the third serial production model cooperation with Sparkman & Stephens and followed the same philosophy as the previous Baltic 64 and Baltic 52. Although the racing scene had moved more into the empty flat-out sailing machines, our 58 proved that the Baltic Yacht concept of building the yachts light, even when equipped with a comfortable interior, made a product that still could compete in races and at the same time offer very comfortable and safe family cruising.
BALTIC YACHTS OVERVIEW:
Baltic Yachts was founded 35 years ago in 1973 by five men looking to build superior yachts – or superyachts - that would give them the edge over their competitors. Baltic Yachts is now one of the leading names in custom and semi-custom made luxury yachts for sale.
Baltic Yachts Ltd yard is located in a village called Bosund on the West coast of Finland. Here they have developed excellent facilities for building their yachts.
The first yacht built by Baltic Yachts Ltd was the Baltic 46 in 1974. Since then they have built custom and semi-custom built yachts for sale in all sizes from 38ft to 152ft.
Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from CE Confirmity as she was in use in the EEA prior to June 1998.
FRP sandwich construction to the highest specification, using unidirectional rovings and high grade resin to develop an extremely rigid yet light and well insulated structure.
The core material is aircraft-grade Balsa, type CK57. CK57 is lighter than standard balsa. (It has a specific weight of 110 kg/m3 (6,9 lbs/ft3) compared to 155 kg/m3 (9,7 lbs/ft3) of the latter).
Time and experience have revealed that the very best hull laminate incorporates a hybrid unidirectional roving consisting of a combination of Kevlar and glass fibres. This proven system is refined and used on the BALTIC 58.
The resin used in the laminates is a modified Isopthalic polyester with higher impact strength, toughness, elongation to break (more crack resistant), and higher water resistant than of the conventionally used resins.
This combination of sandwich construction, unidirectional Kevlar/Glass fibres and high-grade resin will result in laminates with significant weight reduction but also added strength and durability compared to conventional laminates.
All high stress areas are specially strengthened with a build up of unidirectional rovings orientated in the direction of the stress.
Transverse floors and longitudinal stringers are made up of a unidirectional roving and fabmat around a low density PVC foam core.
Finishing - Hull outside painted with high quality abrasion-resistance colour pigment gelcoat.
White hull colour – repainted 2009
Hull inside to be topcoated white or dark brown.
Main structural bulkheads are built up of a balsa core GRP sandwich construction.
Deck & Superstructure Construction:
Hand laid-up moulded fibreglass with balsa core for stiffening and insulation and a high density core reinforcement incorporated in the mounting areas of winches and fittings. The deck has a high strength/weight ratio and is bonded to the hull with layers of roving. The deck is through bolted to the hull.
Deck is painted with high quality abrasion-resistance colour pigment gelcoat.
Standard colour is white.
Teak laid deck – refitted 2018 (approx 10mm remaining)
Keel & Rudder:
External fin keel, cast to high accuracy, in lead strengthened with antimony.
The shape of the keel has been developed with the emphasis of lowering the ballast center-of-gravity as much as possible without adding drag or decreasing lift. The lower center of gravity gives higher stability with added speed and power but also makes the boat easier to handle. A lower center of gravity also increases the boats resistance against knock downs hence making the boat safer and adds seaworthiness.
The keel is through bolted to the hull by cast-in stainless steel bolts.
The cantilevered semi-elliptical balanced spade rudder is moulded from Fiberglas and filled with PVC-foam. Foam filling under high pressure in special strengthened mould.
The rudder stock is made of high strength, S-glass - Epoxy construction using "Vacu-Press" manufacturing system. The rudder stock is tapered and dimensioned to the corresponding bending moments in order to minimise weight. The rudder stock passes through self aligning roller bearings and a stuffing box which is strongly bonded to the hull.

The steering is provided by a light weight "destroyer type" wheel. The wheel is leather covered made of stainless steel, welded and highly polished.
Baltic Yachts custom made pedestal. The steerer has sprockets and non magnetic chains leading to steering cables. The steering cables are stainless steel wire and the cable sheaves have a score diameter of not less than 20 times the wire diameter. The steering sheaves are mounted on brackets securely bonded to the structure.
