Fearless, one of the venerable Baltic 55 sloops that made such a mark on sailing in the 1980s is back on the market with much improved refinements and ready to sail and race to near and far oceans.
Her owner has dramatically improved her though she still needs a few things such as paint and some cosmetics.
Her David Pedrick keel, which offers spirited performance while significantly improving her stability, sidebar: the keels design puts more weight lower in the keel to increase her righting moment, making her a happier sailing boat and her crew equally happier.
Still some work being done to her this spring and summer 2017.
