Baglietto reveals design for new 44m Open superyacht
by Simon Hardie
Baglietto has announced a new addition to its line of semi-custom yachts, the 44 metre Open. The latest project from Baglietto adds to the Italian yard’s long-standing tradition of building ‘Open’ superyachts.
The semi displacement, aluminium 44 metre Open is the result of another collaboration between La Spezia based Baglietto and designer Francesco Paszkowski.
The new design fits in with Baglietto’s aim to reinterpret its heritage style in a modern and contemporary way. “The new 44 metre Open stands out for the great liveability of both its outdoor areas and interiors, while preserving the aggressive look and impressive performance of a sporty craft,” said Baglietto in a statement.
The yard is offering a variety of layouts, with owners able to choose between four or five cabins. A third option allows the main deck to be raised, making room for a larger master cabin.
On the main deck aft sun pads surround a custom-made pool. Up forward there is a second, more private area for lounging and enjoying the views, while the open fly bridge offers 360 degree visibility for safe cruising.
Baglietto offers its customers a series of products from 35 to 65 metres in the ‘Open’, ‘Fast’ and displacement lines. The new 44m Open further extends its Open range, which includes the 34 metre Blue Princess Star.
The launch of the first 46m Fast yacht, Project 10221, is expected this year. The ‘Fast’ planning series evolved with the launch of the 44 metre, 30 knot Monokini in 2013.
In January Baglietto launched the 54 metre displacement yacht, Project 10219. It has also announced a new line of explorer yachts, with construction of the first hull, 48m Explorer 10229, expected to begin soon.
