On May 7th, Baglietto’s top management assembled at the La Spezia facility to observe the launch of the new 46m Fast superyacht, currently known as hull 10221, marking the birth of the shipyard’s new range. The ceremony itself took place at sunset at the shipyard where local authorities, the Mayor of La Spezia Massimo Federici, and the President of the port authority Lorenzo Forceri were also in attendance.
Bagliettio has developed the new line as an ‘evolution of previous models’ in cooperation with Francesco Paszkowski Design, the Italian based design studio that has previously designed 32 of the 62 yachts built by the Italian shipyard.
The exterior styling of the 46m superyacht echoes that of her recent predecessors, the aluminium planing yachts that became Baglietto's calling card. Paszkowski has incorporated trapeze shaped windows in the hull as an alternative to regular rectangular windows, which do make an appearance on two different levels of the yacht.
Fitting out operations are now underway and the interiors and nearing completion, which have once again been penned by Francesco Paszkowski Design and architect Margherita Casprini.
On board the 46m Fast yacht, warm shades of rosewood alternate with the cold white lacquered ceiling and side panels, resulting in a contemporary finish. The traditional layout offers fout ensuite guest cabins on the lower deck as well as the master suite. The upper deck is large enough to host a comfortable saloon, the captain’s cabin and the helm station.
Baglietto currently has seven yachts under construction at the La Spezia facility, two of which have now been launched. This year the Italian shipyard will deliver two yachts, the 46m Fast and the Baglietto 54m, for the second year in a row. This is a great development for Baglietto as this level of output hasn’t been achieved by the yard prior 2011.
