Baltic 38DP - 1980's hybrid cruiser/racer
Doug Peterson (DP) used his racing experience to design this 1980’s hybrid cruiser/racer. She had outstanding performance and handling with a beautifully crafted yet spacious interior.
Although claimed to be suitable for short-handed cruising, she is not really a boat for a couple to handle on their own. However, she has a delightful after cabin, superb galley and spacious saloon. Only the forecabin, thanks to the very fine bows, was a little cramped.
The cockpit is designed for hard, crewed sailing. Like her sisters, she has stood the test of time well. Few come on the market so prices are a premium though hard-raced ones are a little cheaper.
