Caribbean dream

Baglietto discloses details for Abaco, a new 40-metre superyacht project designed by Santa Maria Magnolfi.

05 November 2019


The new Baglietto project has been presented, with the main inspiration behind Abaco being the “idea of living and fully enjoying the sea”, claims the Italian-based shipyard.

Abaco takes her name from the warm crystal waters of the Bahamas, as the vessel is ideal for cruising in shallow waters. The Abaco project was named in tribute to the people of one of the islands most affected by Hurricane Dorian. Baglietto, as part of a humanitarian initiative, will give a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the first project to the reconstruction of the Abaco island.

Robust lines, open spaces, and modern design, as well as generous volumes for the interior, are some of the main features of this yacht.

The main deck can boast over 120-square-metres of outdoor spaces, stretched towards the stern, where the cockpit and the beach club join in a single space in direct contact point. In this space, there is an infinity pool and a comfortable sunbathing area. Behind it, a conversation area can become, if necessary, a dining area for 16 guests.


Going forward, there is a “winter garden” occupied by a bar and living space, which can be fully opened if required thanks to floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. The connection between the interior and exterior continues in the main saloon, which was designed with the same logic of opening both aft and in the large side windows.

This extreme modularity makes it possible to get 150-square-metres of outdoor spaces on a single bridge.

The owner’s suite has an office and a his and her bathrooms. The accommodation area is located in the lower deck, occupied by four large cabins. On the same deck, at the bow, the crew mess and crew area are found.

The upper deck, sundeck, and bow area add 170-square-metres of open space, offering different areas for long conversations.

The interior design was created as a continuity of the exterior, using natural materials and bright tones such as teak, straw, raffia, linen, and tropical woods, which give an exotic touch, freshness, and elegance.

The yacht is equipped with a garage capable of accommodating a tender of 6 metres in length, and a forward garage that can fit a rescue tender or yacht toys.

The motorisation includes two CAT C32 ACERT D rate engines capable of bringing the boat to a maximum speed of 17.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots, but a hybrid solution is also envisioned.
