Astera ascends

Baglietto’s fifth DOM 133, M/Y Astera, is undergoing its final fitting-out in Italy after splashing in the port of Carrara.

22 March 2024


The fifth hull in Baglietto’s DOM 133 line has hit the water in the port of Carrara, Italy. M/Y Astera is now in the builder’s La Spezia shipyard for final fitting-out operations. The technical launch was attended by the owners, who reached Tuscany with their representative Robert Lama.

The yacht was designed by Stefano Vafiadis, who also took care of the interiors. M/Y Astera preserves the key features that have made this line successful, like the two-level beach club and the generous volumes. The beach club also has an infinity pool fitted with a lifting bottom that rises to add volume to the main deck cockpit.

Hull #10246 features a high level of customisation: compared to its previous sister ships, this unit has implemented significant innovations, mainly aimed at maximising a sense of openness.

The saloon on the upper deck, for instance, has a window-door that also opens up on the sides onto two small balconies, while the decision to move the ventilation ducts outside on the main deck means that the main saloon now has full glazing on the left side of the vessel.


This aluminium displacement yacht mounts two Caterpillar C32 engines allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 17 knots.

Baglietto specialises in constructing new planing aluminium yachts ranging between 38 and 50 metres in length, and steel and aluminium displacement megayachts from 35 metres and above.

The builder currently has two production sites – its headquarters in La Spezia and its operating site in Carrara.
