Sparkling factory-extended yacht based on the Baltic 58 and providing additional deck storage and sun-deck space over the regular 58. Refitted in 2013 and boasting a great cruising specification.


Originally launched for a serial Baltic owner, AKOYA is one of just four Sparkman & Stephens Baltic 58’s, although in the quest for improved deck space and stowage, she was extended at build to create a Baltic 59 Custom design.

Extensively cruised in her original ownership, she finished 1st in class in the 2007 ARC, 3rd at the 2005 Baltic Cup and 2nd in the 1993 Fastnet. AKOYA is not a slow boat by any measure!

Extensively refitted by her current owners in 2013, she benefitted from fitment of a new 14mm teak deck, new topsides, and rig paint and a whole host of other upgrades and replacements. Since then, she has been lightly cruised around the Mediterranean and very well maintained by her experienced owner.

This model represented the third serial production model cooperation with Sparkman & Stephens and followed the same philosophy as the previous Baltic 64 and Baltic 52. Although the racing scene had moved more into the empty flat-out sailing machines, our 58 proved that the Baltic Yacht concept of building the yachts light, even when equipped with a comfortable interior, made a product that still could compete in races and at the same time offer very comfortable and safe family cruising.



RCD Status:
• Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from CE Confirmity as she was in use in the EEA prior to June 1998.

Hull Construction:
• FRP sandwich construction to the highest specification, using unidirectional rovings and high grade resin to develop an extremely rigid yet light and well insulated structure.
• The core material is aircraft-grade Balsa, type CK57. CK57 is lighter than standard balsa. (It has a specific weight of 110 kg/m3 (6,9 lbs/ft3) compared to 155 kg/m3 (9,7 lbs/ft3) of the latter).
• Time and experience have revealed that the very best hull laminate incorporates a hybrid unidirectional roving consisting of a combination of Kevlar and glass fibres. This proven system is refined and used on the BALTIC 58.
• The resin used in the laminates is a modified Isopthalic polyester with higher impact strength, toughness, elongation to break (more crack resistant), and higher water resistant than of the conventionally used resins.
• This combination of sandwich construction, unidirectional Kevlar/Glass fibres and high-grade resin will result in laminates with significant weight reduction but also added strength and durability compared to conventional laminates.
• All high stress areas are specially strengthened with a build up of unidirectional rovings orientated in the direction of the stress.
• Transverse floors and longitudinal stringers are made up of a unidirectional roving and fabmat around a low density PVC foam core.
• Finishing - Hull outside painted with high quality abrasion-resistance colour pigment gelcoat.
• Grey hull colour – repainted 2013
• Hull inside to be topcoated white or dark brown.
• Main structural bulkheads are built up of a balsa core GRP sandwich construction.

Deck & Superstructure Construction:
• Hand laid-up moulded fibreglass with balsa core for stiffening and insulation and a high density core reinforcement incorporated in the mounting areas of 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.
• Deck is painted with high quality abrasion-resistance colour pigment gelcoat.
• Standard colour is white.
• Teak laid deck – replaced 2013 with 14mm planking

Keel & Rudder:
• External fin keel, cast to high accuracy, in lead strengthened with antimony.
• The shape of the keel has been developed with the emphasis of lowering the ballast center-of-gravity as much as possible without adding drag or decreasing lift. The lower center of gravity gives higher stability with added speed and power but also makes the boat easier to handle. A lower center of gravity also increases the boats resistance against knock downs hence making the boat safer and adds seaworthiness.
• The keel is through bolted to the hull by cast-in stainless steel bolts.
• The cantilevered semi-elliptical balanced spade rudder is moulded from Fiberglas and filled with PVC-foam. Foam filling under high pressure in special strengthened mould.
• The rudder stock is made of high strength, S-glass - Epoxy construction using "Vacu-Press" manufacturing system. The rudder stock is tapered and dimensioned to the corresponding bending moments in order to minimise weight. The rudder stock passes through self aligning roller bearings and a stuffing box which is strongly bonded to the hull.


Engine & gearbox:
• Yanmar 4JH3-DTE 125hp 4-cylinder turbo-charged diesel engine – 2005
• Engine comprehensively overhauled 2013
• Engine hours – approx 8,702 as of October 2018
• Yanmar reduction gearbox
• Fresh¬water cooled engine.
• Single lever engine control.

Propulsion & Steering:
• Maxprop 4-bladed feathering propeller - 2013
• The propeller shaft is made of corrosion resistant steel AISI 329 The outboard end is supported with a stainless steel IOR-type shaft strut including rubber bearings. The stuffing box has a hose connection to the stern tube. Zinc anodes and a mechanical propellerstop are installed on the shaft.
• The steering is provided by a light weight "destroyer type" wheel. The wheel is leather covered made of stainless steel, welded and highly polished.
• Baltic Yachts custom made pedestal. The steerer has sprockets and non magnetic chains leading to steering cables. The steering cables are stainless steel wire and the cable sheaves have a score diameter of not less than 20 times the wire diameter. The steering sheaves are mounted on brackets securely bonded to the structure.
• One aluminium alloy tube emergency tiller, storage in cockpit locker.
