About this Baltic Yachts 48 DP


Beautifully built Doug Peterson Baltic Yacht launched in December 1985. Hull nr. 1 of the iconic design, ultra-equipped with furling hydraulic and winches.


Perhaps one of the most iconic Baltic Yachts of all time. Unmistakably a Baltic and with a style and presence that has continued through today and the very latest carbon creations producing by this prestigious Finnish custom yacht builder.

Adhering to the philosophy of ‘built the best possible sailing yacht, combing safe, easy handling performance cruising with high performance racing’, the Doug Peterson designed Baltic 48DP is a light to medium displacement design that blends superior performance with comfortable cruising characteristics. Baltic's emphasis on leading edge technology combined with the finest world reknown Finnish craftsman resulted in the 48DP as the standard bearer for a new generation of elegant performance ocean passage makers.

MAGIC-D was built as hull nr. 1 of this prestigious boat in 1985 and delivered to her first owner in December 1985. Bought from the current owner and professionally restored with new teak deck, standing rigging and hull paint, she is now for sale as her owner is struggling to find the time to have her re-launched.
