Italian shipyard Baglietto has unveiled a new 40m project, designed by Horacio Bozzo of the eponymous Horacio Bozzo Design studio. Scheduled for a 2020 delivery, this is the first time Bozzo has worked with the shipyard, an exciting development for both the studio and Baglietto. The yacht has been sold to an American owner.
The new superyacht will be constructed entirely out of aluminium and based on a new platform that the shipyard claims to have developed specifically for the project. Currently referred to as hull no. 10232, the interiors of the yacht will be designed by London based designers, Achille Salvagni.
“We are very proud of this fully custom project,” says Baglietto CEO, Michele Gavino. “It represents another step towards the constructive excellence which is the main goal of all our efforts and again a demonstration of the shipyard’s intention to keep pursuing technical innovation and developing our naval engineering capabilities.”

Although the details of the design are yet to be disclosed, Baglietto has stated that the yacht will be ‘an example of Baglietto’s total flexibility [that] takes advantage of its fully-custom production’.
Writing for The Superyacht Report in 2017, Gavino mentioned the importance of retaining elements that make a yacht unique within a market that sees a great deal of homogenisation. And, while the details of the yacht have not been specified, it’s very likely that this philosophy would be carried through into hull no. 10232.
“Against this apparent product homogeneity, brands have maintained their distinctive value. Regardless of the common features shared by the yachts, brands are still, perhaps now more than ever, the element that can largely make products truly unique,” Gavino explains. Very few boatbuilders can boast a highly distinctive brand that epitomises all the values the company behind it stands for – its history, its iconic features.”
According to The Superyacht Intelligence Agency, Baglietto have five yachts under construction, including hull no. 10232. This year, the shipyard has a 55m scheduled for delivery which will bring its total fleet up to 67 superyachts in total.
