Baglietto has added two projects to its new V-Line. Joining the 41m, 44m and 50m yachts designed by Francesco Paskowsky Design and Hot Lab are a 41m and a 50m vessel pencilled by the Italian yacht and architecture firm Santa Maria Magnolfi.

The V-Line is the latest addition to Baglietto’s portfolio. All the yachts in the line feature contemporary lines and a vertical bow.

Hull engineering on all projects has been carried out by Baglietto Engineering Department.

The new 41m yacht that comes from the drawing board of Santa Maria Magnolfi is under 500 tons (340grt) and will be equipped with two Cat 32 ACERT engines that will push her to a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots.

“Over the last few months our ability to develop and launch new products while preserving our traditions has impressively sped up,” comments Baglietto’s managing director Michele Gavino.

Gavino adds: “We liked the idea of having our reference designer, Francesco Paszkowski, joined by some new, young designers, who can cast a new, fresh look on our brand and reinterpret its personality without ever losing sight of its unbreakable ties with its history and identity.”

New 41m V-Line by Santa Maria Magnolfi

The Baglietto 41m V-Line by Santa Maria Magnolfi boasts 300sq m of exterior spaces divided over three decks. The sundeck is approximately 60sq m wide occupied by sunbeds and sunbathing area.

Moving forward on the 155sq m upper deck from the helm station, a large C-shaped sofa overlooks the sunbathing area with a pool. A wide sunbathing area is also allocated on the main deck aft.

The interiors are wide, open, with large, often full-height, glazed surfaces.

Commenting on the project, designer Federico Santa Maria says: “In designing this 41m vessel we had the honour and the burden of having to preserve some of Baglietto’s historical elements and stylistic features – such as the two round portholes on the main deck (reminding of the inimitable 20m) or the curved corner glass on the helm station (which immediately recalls the first Ischia)- while also reviving and renovating the fiery, passionate spirit that has made this brand truly special over the decades.”

Investment plans

Besides focusing on product research and development, Baglietto is also considerably investing in its operating facilities and human resources.

By 2020, investments will total approximately €12 million. After allocating €20 million over the last four years for the construction of two new industrial sheds and the upgrading of the entire production facility to the highest construction standards.

Further works at the shipyard are now involving the construction of a third industrial shed for vessels up to 65m long and a new sheltered dock.
