La Spezia-based shipyard Baglietto has announced a new work order for a 55-metre steel and aluminium yacht for a European client, for an expected 2019 delivery. The company is calling 2017 a successful year, with the sale following that of a 54-metre all-aluminium displacement yacht to an American owner and a 46 Fast Lucky Me.
The new vessel will be designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design using Baglietto’s traditional ‘T-Line’ platform. Elements embodying the brand’s signature style will be soft and sleek lines, lowered gunwales and side air vents.
Details of the fully customised six-cabin interior are under wraps but it will feature an expansive beach club area and a sundeck of 160 square metres.
“This 55-metre project is the third work order Baglietto has acquired over the last eight months,” said Baglietto’s CEO Michele Gavino. In this period Baglietto has also delivered two new products – the 48-metre Andiamo and the first MV19, Ridoc – and presented two new projects to complete its renovated range: a restyling of the 43-metre Fast and a new 70-metre yacht by Mulder Design.
“We are working with great commitment and equally great humbleness on our products, so as to ensure 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,” Gavino continued.
Currently under construction in the La Spezia shipyard, besides the new project, are a 48-metre displacement craft similar to MY Andiamo, and a 43-metre Fast yacht.
