● Baglietto - 55M
This coming boating season and the next few look good for Baglietto , in terms of new builds throughout the range. There are currently five new yachts being built, an MV19, a 55 metre displacing motor yacht, two displacing 48 metre ones and a 43 metre Fast. Each one of the five has been carried out by Francesco Paskowski Design in addition to the one presented at the latest Monaco Yacht Show of the V- Line. This historic Italian brand has recently asked Hot Lab design and Santa Maria Magnolfi studios to draw up project designs with a view to further diversify the
brand’s current range of models. The latest new entry, the displacing 55 metre model designed by Santa Maria Magnolfi design studio which was also presented in the course of the Singapore Yacht Show last April sports the yard’s naval tradition and its lines, where there is ample convivial space dedicated to the exteriors. This yacht was conceived to undertake long nonstop hauls, and for this reason it has been equipped with diesel electric engines. This 55 metre offers the kind of comfort which becomes a necessity when long periods of time are spent cruising over long distances, and more in terms of spaces for the ship’s stores, as well as those dedicated to technical and laundry areas. As for on board entertainment of which there is plenty, the space dedicated to films oozes with latest technology. A more than adequate beach club area and fully equipped gym/ wellness centre sport direct access to the surrounding waters. In fact one of the project’s key features is contact with the sea. This translates into large external surface areas dedicated to guests. To clarify the concept, along the 280 square metre surface of the upper deck, as many as 125 of them have been dedicated entirely to a six metre long pool and sun bathing area. The interiors are predictably also large with a 90 square metre saloon/living room area situated along the main deck followed by a dining area measuring 21 square metres which thanks to sliding panels can easily double as a conference room. Elegant stairways as well as a lift connect the three decks to one another. The stern garage/ hangar can host up to a 7.5 metre tender, while a smaller one slots into the one in the bow area with a pair of jet skis and several water toys.
