Baglietto has revealed its new 55m M/Y Severin°s at their shipyard in La Spezia. Formerly known as hull no.10225, Severin°s was showcased for the first time on the Gulf of Poet.
After the flag-raising ceremony, Italian singer, performer and X Factor finalist, Aba Chiara, sang the Italian national anthem and Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, gave a welcome speech on behalf of the shipyard. The launch of Severin°s followed the traditional baptism ritual of the sea, with the christening of the yacht and the Champagne bottle crash.
“This was a historic and emotional day,” stated Michele Gavino, Baglietto CEO. “Not only did we welcome such a beautiful yacht, the biggest ever built by Baglietto in its recent history, but we also saw the history of the shipyard before our very eyes.”
“The unveiling of a new yacht is always an extraordinary moment in a shipyard’s life,” he added. “It is a special moment focused on the yacht; her owner, who I thank for the trust given to us; and all the people that made this dream a reality.”
During the launch, there were an array of superyachts that marked the history of Baglietto, present demonstrating their designs from past to present: S/Y Caroly, built in 1948, M/Y Nina J, built in 2006 designed by renowned architect Tommaso Spadolini, as well as Baglietto’s most recent launch M/Y Silver Fox. The MV13, Baglietto’s famous powerboat tender, also made an appearance.
On land, the superyachts currently under construction were also present, including 54m hull no. 10231,40m hull no. 10232, 48m hull no. 10233 and 46m hull no. 10226.
The new 55m hull is part of Baglietto’s traditional T-Line platform, designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The vessel’s design is said to reflect Baglietto’s traditional Italian style and, together with the lowered gunwales and side air vents, is suggested to embody the Seagull brand’s distinct aesthetic features. Paszkowski designed the interiors in collaboration with architect Margherita Casprini.
The yacht’s general arrangement has been devised for charter with a total of six cabins, a 10.2m beam, 3m draft and a half load displacement of 620 tons. Severin°s has a fuel capacity of 93,000 litres, a maximum speed of 17.0 knots, and a cruising speed of 12.0 knots.
The main deck, dedicated to the family, features a large master suite with a central bed, a secluded office, and a walk-in wardrobe, and two guest cabins on the same deck. The central lobby contains a marble lift which connects the three decks, while the main saloon aft at the entrance offers an in-and-out area enclosed by a glass window that can be completely opened. The dining area has a central round table which completes the main deck layout.
A further guest cabin is located on the upper deck, which has a multifunctional space furnished with a sofa and two Pullman beds. The interior layout is complete with a living room, conversation area, and a gaming table. Outside features a dining table for ten with a bar.
The sun deck consists of 150 square meters of al fresco space entirely devoted to gatherings and outdoor activities. The stern offers a sunbathing area with freestanding sunbeds, while a separate area located under the roll bar provides shade, and two pop-up tables can transform the space into a dining spot. There is also a swimming pool and bar on this deck.
The placement of the tender and toys in the foredeck allows more space to be dedicated to the Beach Club, which has double access. The Beach Club offers 55 square meters of space with a steam shower, bar, and an additional area for a gym and spa.
The yacht is certified with the maximum class by Lloyd’s Register, complete with two Caterpillar engines 3516C DITA, which have a maximum speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
There are currently four yachts under construction at Baglietto’s La Spezia facility including a 43m HT Fast Line, a 54m craft and a 40m vessel to be delivered in 2020 - both with exteriors designed by Horacio Bozzo and interiors by Hot Lab and Achille Salvagni, and the production on speculation of a third 48m model in the T-Line, which will be the sister ship of the Silver Fox and is expected to be delivered in October 2020.
