Italian shipyard, Baglietto has announced it has signed a contract for a new 55m superyacht. The vessel will be built in steel and aluminium for a client in Europe.
It features exteriors from Italian studio Francesco Paszkowski Design and uses Baglietto’s traditional platform – the T-Line. The design features sleek lines, lowered gunwales and side air vents, which encapsulate the yard’s unmistakable design aesthetic.
Although many details of the yacht have been kept confidential for now, it has been relevealed that the layout of the 55m is extensively customised. She features accommodation for 12 guests across six cabins, as well as a vast beach club area and a 160m² sundeck.
The order follows on from the sale of the 46m motor yacht Lucky Me, and a 54m all-aluminium displacement yacht for an American owner earlier this year.
Michele Gavino, Baglietto’s chief executive officer commented, “This 55m project is the third work order Baglietto has acquired over the last eight months, a time during which we have also delivered two new products – 48m Andiamo and the first MV19 Ridoc – and presented two new projects that will complete our renovated range: A restyling of the 43m Fast and the brand new 70m yacht by Mulder Design.
“We are working with great commitment to our products, so as to ensure increasingly high quality, as well as a continued focus on research and development. In this way, we are able to offer our clients a varied and versatile range. Once again, having the opportunity to build the yacht on speculation has allowed us to offer the owner faster delivery times.”
The yacht is due to be delivered during 2019.
Alongside this project, a 48m displacement craft – the twin sister of the recently delivered Andiamo – and a 43m yacht in the Fast Line range are currently under construction at the yard.
