Italian yacht builder Baglietto has launched hull #10219, a new 54m yacht built for a European owner. The yacht touched water on Saturday at the shipyard in La Spezia.
Francesco Paszkowski Design took care of her exterior lines and interiors, the latter in cooperation with architect Margherita Casprini. Naval engineering is by Baglietto’s technical department, while project management was under the responsibility of Wim Koersvelt.
This new 54m steel and aluminium displacement yacht was built using Baglietto’s tested platform for 53m yachts, the same used for the construction of motoryachts Blue Scorpion, Gitana, and Baraka.
Baglietto says the aesthetic on this model serve as a ‘preview’ for the restyling that will characterise the 43m, 48m, and 55m yachts currently under construction and that the styling will also be introduced on the forthcoming 58m and 62m projects.
The La Spezia-based boatbuilder has also announced that its displacement line is soon to be joined by a series of fast planing yachts. These vessels will carry a streamlined, aggressive profile. The first 46m model is scheduled to be launched in April and will be presented at next year’s international boat shows. The fast line will also include an entry-level yacht, around 36m in length.
While the two aforementioned lines are the shipyard’s core business, Baglietto is also working on the MV range – a modern reinterpretation of historical underwater assault vehicles. In addition to the MV13 the brand is introducing the new MV19, which is currently under construction at new facilities in La Spezia and is expected to be launched in spring this year.
