First glimpse: Baglietto T-Line 48 superyacht takes shape
by Chris Jefferies
The new Baglietto T-Line 48 series is an evolution of the Baglietto 46 metre displacement hull superyacht, of which hull No 1 was launched in 2014. Now named Mr. T, the Baglietto 46 was the first in a new breed of displacement motor yachts for the yard.
As with the Baglietto 46, the exterior and interior design for the new Baglietto T-Line 48 comes from Italian designer and long-time collaborator Francesco Paszkowski. The yacht will carry forward traditional Baglietto styling cues with modern updates.
Accommodation is for 12 guests split between five cabins, including an owner's cabin, two double rooms and twin rooms with pullman berths. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to nine people.
Power comes from a pair of 2,012hp MTU 12V 4000 M63 diesel engines for a top speed of 16 knots. When trimmed back to its cruising speed of 12 knots, this tri-deck superyacht will boast a maximum range of 4,500 nautical miles, thanks to a total fuel capacity of 80,000 litres.
The Baglietto T-Line 48 is the yard's first foray into the American market since the Gavio Group took over the company, and it’s a sector that the builder says continues to show “great interest” in its offerings.
Other projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 55 metre Baglietto Project 10225, which is due to hit the water next year.
