20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

Not sure if a Baltic or a Swan, but they're not the same company. Baltic was started in early 70's by 5 employees of Nautor (Swan) who left to go on their own. At the end of 1977 Hollming Ltd, a large Finnish shipbuilder purchased Baltic. In 1991 Hollming wanted to sell and there was an employee buyout and they have been running Baltic since then. They are located in Bosund Finland. Nautor Swan was purchased by Italian Leonardo Ferragamo in 1998.

i know they have something in common besides being very expensive plastic fantastics--it might be designer then--not certain--but they have something in common.....they also look very similar in lines and design ....the boat in the pic is one or the other--i know that much!!

They're both based in Finland. German Frers is Nautor's most prolific designer, also Tripp, and Luca Brenta. Previously S&S and Ron Holland.
Baltic uses mostly an in house team for most styling, engineering and interiors, lines by Judel Vrolijk,Reichel & Pugh, Doug Peterson,German Frers, S&S and others. Neither currently builds smaller than 42 in Swan's case and 50 for Baltic except for custom. Below are a Swan 40 and a Baltic 38. I don't think it is either. Definately from Scandinavia though.
