Comprehensively upgraded, refitted and modified example of the iconic S&S designed Baltic 64. The penultimate boat launched and maintained regardless of cost.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
SCHORCH is the penultimate Baltic 64 built. Boasting timeless, yet slippery Sparkman & Stephens hull lines, with an added performance boost of a custom Judel Vrolik T-keel and powerful fully-battened mainsail with Park Avenue boom and non-overlapping genoa, SCHORCH offers just the right mix of classical and modernity.
Below decks, she is finished like no other with beautiful hand-finished teak joinery and a very practical four cabin plus crew layout.
Extensively refitted and only ever used privately, SCHORCH is without doubt the finest of her type and with approx her current asking price spent in recent refit upgrades, she also represents remarkable value for those seeking a ‘ready to go’ cruiser of this quality and type.

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.
- Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from CE Confirmity as she was in use in the EEA prior to June 1998.
- Balsa core fiberglass sandwich construction to the highest specification using fiberglass mat, uni-directional roving and mat/ roving combination to develop an extremely rigid yet light and well insulated structure.
- All high stress areas are specially strengthened with built up uni-directional roving orientated in the direction of the stress.
- Uni-directional roving is a special developed glass/ aramid (Kevlar) hybrid to improve impact resistance, strength, stiffness and safety of the structure.
- Special selected aircraft grade end grain balsa used in sandwich construction for increased strength and weight saving purposes.
- High grade epoxy resin is used in the lamination process to create an extremely strong high-tech laminate.
- Vacuum bag technique also utilized to enable control of the fibre/resin ratio. This will increase the mechanical properties of the laminate to a high extent.
- Taking advantage of modern light weight construction techniques and fiber technology enables a higher ballast/ displacement ratio which gives better performance and seaworthiness for the yacht.
- Transverse floors and longitudinal stringers are made up of uni-directional roving and fabmat around a high density core.
- Chain Plates are stainless steel through bolted to longitudinal or transverse bulkheads which are securely bonded to the hull and deck. Plates are provided with backing plates to spread loads adequately. Chain plates are grounded to a keel bolt for lightning protection.
- Engine beds are incorporated in hull. Built up of uni-directional fibers on a high density PVC foam core.
- Fabricated aluminium alloy mast step bolted to re-inforced floors and stringers.
- Hull topsides painted in Corinthian Blue Awlgrip – 2017/18
- Antifouling stripped and 3x layers of epoxy gelshield added beneath 3x layers of International Trilux – 2017/18
Deck & Superstructure Construction:
- Hand laid-up moulded fiberglass with balsa core for stiffening and insulation, appropiate reinforcement incorporated in the area of the 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.
- A hybrid epoxy resin is used in the lamination process.
- A 12mm laid teak deck including cockpits and aft coamings – replaced 2009 and further refurbished with new caulking during 2017/18 refit.
- Teak is epoxy glued and screwed to the deck.
Keel & Rudder:
- Custom Judel/Vrolijk designed T-Keel with 3.15m draft fitted during 2009 refit for improved sailing and cruising performance.
- Stainless steel cast-in keel bolts.
- The cantilivered semi-elliptical balanced spade rudder is moulded from fiberglass and filled with a PVC-foam. Foam filling under high pressure in special strengthened mould.
- The rudder forces are transmitted to the shaft via an internal aluminium alloy space frame.
- The alloy rudder stock passes through roller bearings and a stuffening box which is strongly bonded to the hull.
- The bearings are provided with grease nipples for lubrication – Bearings replaced during 2017/18 refit.
