Baltic Sirena 44
Opua, Bay of Islands Marina
Excellent sailing performance meets comfort in this Baltic Sirena 44. An ex cruiser-racer, ‘Aloha’ has been converted for offshore sailing or long-term cruising. All lines lead back to a spacious cockpit for easy shorthand sailing with controls at a fingertip. A luxury owners’ version, downstairs this boat has room to sleep the whole family.
Below decks there's a Californian king-sized bed in the aft centre cabin with adjourning bathroom on the starboard side. Three bunk beds in the bow are perfect for a family with kids. There is a bunk for a small child in the master cabin which could also be used for bag storage. Lovely timber throughout, safe aft L shaped galley on the port side and large dining table in the saloon.
The hull shape has lots of rocker which makes her comfortable in the rough and great upwind. Enjoy the ease of cruising with a Stack-pack, solar panels and a self-tacking jib. A ladder up the angled transom gives easy dinghy and water access.
Aloha was built in Finland by Baltic yachts, and in her prime was raced by her owner in Holland to win many titles. In 2006 the boat underwent a refit with a new mast and diform wire rigging, new sails and new lines.
The next owner put in a new Volvo D2 Engine 55HP, new sail drive and 3 blade folding propeller, along with a bow thruster.
More upgrades were received in 2017 after the boat went to her 3rd owner, including the Raymarine C Series and an A series chart plotter, Navionics world charts, and windlass. A stainless plate was added to protect the bow from the anchor, and a new arch was built for solar panels and dinghy, along with new genoa and water maker, followed by a Raymarine autopilot in 2018.
The current owners have completed their adventure in New Zealand, and Aloha is now ready for her fourth owner to take the baton and continue the journey.
Located in Opua, Bay of Islands, and ready to view today.
