Beautifully built Doug Peterson Baltic Yacht from 1987 with extensive refit history and a great cruising specification. An iconic design and capable of everything from crossing oceans to sailing around the cans. Few are built better.


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.

LIVINGTON was originally launched in 1987 and has been much updated in recent years including replacement Volvo 55hp engine with saildrive, overhauled teak decks, replaced and recently inspected standing rigging, updated batteries and battery chargers, and much much more. Her inventory is comprehensive and having always been professionally maintained, she represents a fantastic opportunity to step into the world of Baltic yacht ownership.
