Baglietto has announced its third new build sale of the year, for a 55-metre steel and aluminium yacht, which had already commenced construction speculatively at the Italian shipyard. Previously in 2017, the Las Spezia-based “Seagull brand” signed contracts on a 46 Fast and a 54-metre aluminium displacement yacht.
The 55-metre project is based on the T-Line platform for which Baglietto is known, with characteristic soft and sleek lines as well as lowered gunwales and side air vents.
Design has been provided by Francesco Paszkowski Design, with a highly customised layout featuring six guest cabins, an extensive beach club and 160-square-metre sundeck. Further details of the yacht’s design have yet to be revealed.
This 55-metre 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 – 48-metre M/Y Andiamo and the first MV19, M/Y Ridoc – and presented two new projects that will complete our renovated range: a restyling of the 46-metre Fast and the brand-new 70-metre yacht by Mulder Design … Once again, having the opportunity to build the yacht on speculation has allowed us to offer the owner faster delivery times,” said CEO Michele Gavino.
The 55-metre motor yacht was sold to a European owner who was represented by Edmiston’s Cornelius Gerling, and it is expected to be delivered in 2019.
Baglietto is one of Italy’s most historical yacht builders, having recently celebrated 160 years in business. It builds motor yachts from 38 metres in length and has a wide range of existing model designs across three lines, the Fast Line, the V-Line and the T-Line, including the previously mentioned 70-metre design from Mulder Design.
