Baglietto: a union of traditions and innovations
At the shipyard in La Spezia, work continues on several Baglietto projects at once. This Italian shipbuilder specializes in the creation of aluminum planing yachts in lengths from 38 to 50 meters, as well as displacement and semi-displacement mega yachts over 40 meters. Recently, more details have been revealed about Superfast 42 and DOM 133.
The new 42m Superfast 42 is elegant yet aggressive. Francesco Paszkowski Design has reimagined the classic lines of planing yachts by smoothening the superstructure and adding multi-level glazing to the exterior. All this provided the yacht with an ultra-modern appearance.
The yacht’s stern is also marked with an innovative design approach – the hinged door is transformed into a comfortable platform, where the beach area with sofas and a bar will be located right next to the water. In order not to disturb guests, the tender can be launched through the side doors.
The interior layout of the yacht, on the other hand, is quite traditional. Spacious master stateroom across the full beam of the main deck, complete with large bathroom and walk-in closet. Below deck is the guest area, which includes 2 VIP cabins and 2 suites with separate berths and an additional Pullman bed. Also on the lower deck there is space for the crew compartment: there is a captain’s cabin and 3 suites with bunk beds, as well as a dining room.
On the upper deck there is a wheelhouse, as well as a lounge area equipped with a cinema. In addition to the outdoor dining area, both aft and bow can be sunbathing on spacious sun mattresses.
The Superfast 42 has a draft of just 2.10 meters, allowing you to travel safely even in shallow waters. Thanks to three powerful MTU 16V 2000 M96 L engines, as well as a modern ergonomic hull developed by Plana Design, the vessel will be able to reach speeds of up to 28 knots. It is planned to complete work on the yacht by the summer of 2022.
The name of this line comes from the Latin “domus”, which means a house or dwelling. The idea of the architect Stefano Vafiadis is to create a “home away from home” feeling. The project is aimed at designing functional and comfortable yachts that would satisfy all the needs of the owners.
Now the construction of the second vessel in the series – DOM 133, which is 40 meters long, is in full swing. The motor yacht has a shallow draft – only 2 meters, as well as an aluminum hull that has successfully passed seaworthiness tests.
The DOM 133 is equipped with a complete power plant combining traditional diesel engines, electric motors and batteries, which will be used depending on the operational needs. This approach ensures not only economical fuel consumption, but also reduces the harmful impact on the environment.
The cruising range in diesel-electric mode can reach 7,500 nautical miles, while the yacht will be able to reach speeds of up to 17 knots thanks to two CAT C32 engines. The vessel is also capable of staying at anchor for up to 10 hours, using exclusively battery power.
With a deck width of 8.7 meters, the yacht boasts impressive interior spaces and solutions typically found on larger yachts. For example, an elevator that connects three decks. Striking imagination and fantastic sun deck, with an area of over 70 square meters. This deck will have everything you need for a pleasant outdoor experience: a Jacuzzi pool at the bow, a spacious solarium at the stern and a bar area equipped with an elevator for serving meals from the kitchen.
The layout of the main deck is a tribute to modern trends aimed at a friendly open atmosphere and closeness to nature. Particularly noteworthy are the panoramic windows that naturally link the open aft area, and the two-level beach club with pool and solarium. This yacht can be delivered to the owner in April 2022.
