Hull number 3 of 11 Bill Tripp & Vismara designed Baltic 50 semi-custom performance bluewater cruisers. ‘Mediterranean’ version set up for short-handed fast cruising with fantastic cruising interior. Extensively updated and refitted.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
MAGICA was launched in 2000 as Hull No.3 in a run of 11 semi-custom Baltic 50’s. Configured as a ‘Mediterranean’ version with the emphasis of ease of handling and general high performance, MAGICA is the perfect short-handed rocket ship.
Internally, MAGICA also benefits from a fantastic twin-stateroom layout with an additional double bunk cabin for additional crew count.
Extensively refitted and updated in recent seasons, most recently at the Baltic Yachts Italia shipyard in 2016, MAGICA has many specification highlights including:-
- Recently fitted upgrade 80hp Yanmar engine
- Fridge, freezers and wine cooler
- Electric heads
- B&G instruments
- Carbon mast and boom
- Electric Lewmar winches
- Recent Millennium carbon sails
- Furling gennaker
- Tender and outboard
Now in only her second ownership and used lightly for Mediterranean sailing, since her extensive 2016 refit, she has cruised only between Tuscany and Corsica with just 100 hrs run on her recently fitted 80hp Yanmar engine.
The “Mediterranean” version of the Baltic 50 was created on the back of an idea to combine the high performance of an ims hull designed by Bill Tripp for a race version, with the versatility of the Baltic yard when it comes to building custom and semi-custom craft.
Concerning these two elements, the firm made significant interventions, with new designs for the deck and interiors, suggesting a mini-series of Baltic 50 that would be closer to the uses and tastes of the Mediterranean. ‘Magica’, ‘Sherazade’ and ‘Sei tu’ were fitted out as fast cruisers: the simplified deck – now more efficient and functional –devised for easier manoeuvres with a smaller crew.
