This spectacular daysailer/weekender was built at Baltic Yachts in Finland for a highly experienced owner. The design and styling are based on the Eight Metre class yachts from Thore Holm, which are much admired in the Baltic region. This particular design is uncommonly high-tech, however, with a carbon hull construction, spars, rigging, lifting keel fin and spade rudder. Thanks to a displacement of 5.5 tonnes, a deep lifting keel and a powerful sail plan, she is deceptively fast.
Elsa is built to very high quality levels and as light as possible, with a retracting bow & stern anchor, high modulus carbon spars & EC6+ carbon rigging, a small diesel engine, and simple technical installations. All deck equipment is made of titanium and the primary winches are reversible to facilitate single handed sailing. The exterior and interior design and naval architecture were executed by our office and the yacht was delivered in 2013.
