BALTIC 52

The hull of the Baltic 52 was given long sailing lines for high speeds and a special keel with a low centre of gravity for high stability and power. The design was based on S&S’s considerable experience with the IMS rules.

The 2-cockpit arrangement enabled the racing sailor to effectively delegate and spread out crew tasks. When cruising shorthanded, the boat could easily be sailed from the aft cockpit where all the main functions were close at hand to the helmsman and where the genoa sheets were led to the secondary winches.
