1975 Baltic 46

Stonington, Connecticut


Now on her mooring in the harbour, Stonington  Connecticut. The internationally acclaimed Baltic 46 was designed by C&C Design and constructed in Larsmo, Finland. Built to high standards that were advanced for the time. Impressive sail wardrobe. Auxiliary power from a 50 HP Perkins 4.108 diesel (3240 hours). Truly a high performance yacht, Merrythought has a distinguished racing history and is equipped for cruises, races and/or offshore passages. She presents the  chance to own a modern classic. 

Merrythought is one of eleven 46's built. Now needs some tlc and so is offered at a price that reflects that.
