The Baltic 51 was a high performance, easily handled yacht with a functional deck layout which was equally suited for safe family cruising and fast IOR racing. This was the 5th serial production yacht in cooperation with C&C Design, and as with the previous Baltic 39 and Baltic 37, detailed comprehensive computer performance studies were used in the design evaluation. C&C Design´s chef designer Rob Ball and his team put in a lot of effort into the pre-studies for this design again resulting also in polars and performance numbers that could be used as targets for the racing owners. The computer studies carried out exceeded in details and volume that used even in many of today´s projects, and this design was developed in 1979 when most of the competitors still had their designs made “by hand”.
Another ground-breaking feature on the Baltic 51 was the interior layout. The interior layout designed by our in-house design had the owners cabin aft with 2 guest cabins forward of the owners´ cabin, and this unique feature created a very comfortable interior for long ocean racing or/and cruising. However, the most unique feature was the owners’ cabins centre double berth under the aft cockpit. This was our creation and was first criticized by competitors, but later became one of the most copied interior features in our business.
