“The Singapore Yacht Show represents for Baglietto an important occasion to present the brand in an area that we expect may greatly develop in the nearest future,” said Michele Gavino, CEO at the La Spezia shipyard.
“Also on this occasion we will be able to introduce a new project to the market, another sign of the great efforts Baglietto is putting in product development and research to give his Owners a varied offer, modern and highly flexible.”
In fact, the V-Line introduced at the latest boat shows, which features displacement and semi-displacement yachts in steel/aluminium and aluminuim, characterized by very contemporary lines and vertical bow, is now enriched by a new 55-metre displacement project designed by the Milano-based designers Santa Maria Magnolfi.
The project presents sheer lines which draw inspiration from Baglietto’s tradition in the military sector. The design is sober and elegant in line with the smaller sistership of 41 metre presented at the latest Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.
The big volumes, both inside and outside, represent the main characteristic of this 55-metre vessel, yet maintaining the performance which is one of the main feature of Baglietto yachts: thanks to 2 x Caterpillar 3512B HD DITA-SCAC the vessel can comfortably reach a top speed of 16 knots and cruising speed of 12 knots.
A hybrid version is also available, as Baglietto intends to carry on his renovated commitment in the product innovation looking for new high operative flexible solutions.
The exteriors can boast huge common areas which can count on all kind of comforts. The upper deck is more than 280-square-metres wide, in particular at its bow a 6-metre pool is located. Beach club, this extended pool becomes a distinctive feature of this project and a gym and spa are also provided aft with direct access to the sea thanks to a platform.
The interiors are wide and generous. The main deck offers a 90-square-metre open living areas next to the 21-square-metre dining area that can become a private meeting room thanks to some gliding panels.
The Owner suite includes a separate office and the terrace that can be open to enjoy the view. A lift connects the 3 main decks while you can reach the under-lower deck from the crew quarters: here spacious cold rooms, storage and laundry are located for an easy life on board.
On the upper deck at the back of the wheelhouse there is a huge cinema room which opens to the alfresco dining area which can seat up to 20 guests around the central table.
The aft garage hosts a tender of 7.5-metres in length while the smaller one, jet skis and several toys are located in a second garage at the bow.
Five new motor-yachts are currently under construction at the shipyard: while the prototype of MV19 is being completed, a new 55-metre displacement motor-yacht is being produced together with a 43-metre from the Baglietto Fast Product Range and two new 48-metre motor yachts from the displacement line. The first one for delivery next summer to its Owner.
Baglietto will be attending the Versilia Yachting Rendez Vous in Viareggio from 11 to 14 May with 46-metre Lucky Me and 46-metre Pachamama.
Boat builder Baglietto Spa specialises in the construction of new planning aluminium yachts ranging between 35 and 50 metres in length and steel and aluminium displacement mega-yachts above 40-metres.
The company’s activities also include top-quality ship repair and refitting services, as well as the construction of military crafts, the Seagull brand’s traditional business. Extending over a more-than-35,000-square-metre area overlooking the Gulf of the Poets, a truly strategic area for megayacht traffic in the Tyrrhenian sea, the shipyard recently completed an extensive reconstruction project that involved both its manufacturing and commercial facilities.
