What to expect on board the all-new hybrid 52m Baglietto T52

20 July 2021• Written by Laura Nicholls for Baglietto

Once the brand-new TLine range of superyachts was first announced during a virtual press conference at the Baglietto shipyard in 2020, the success of the line has continued to snowball. Today, the yard has successfully sold two units that are both due to be completed during 2023 in Italy.

The Baglietto construction team soon got to work and began building the first unit, also known as hull 10238. By Christmas 2020, the hull had already been laid during a ceremony watched by the owner via a video link. 

Since then, more details about the first T52 have been revealed, including in-depth descriptions of her significant design innovations. Despite a few elements being a new challenge for the Italian builders, the yacht design is said to maintain an essence of the stylistic features of the traditional Baglietto look with a modern interpretation.

What can be seen on board the new sub-500 GT yacht is a three-level stern area that has been completely restyled by designer Francesco Paszkowski Design and features an open beach club that covers all three levels. Also here is a large swimming pool that comes with a unique and exciting function.

When coming aboard, perhaps to join the owner for an aperitivo on the aft deck, guests are able to benefit from having more deck space to gather, mingle and socialise. For such occasions, the large pool can be hidden through the automatic and original up/down moving flooring system. If the pool is required, the three-tiered floor is able to drop down and soon water will begin to fill up the space ready for that super-cool on-deck swimming experience.

Overlooking this area is the sky lounge on the upper deck – another key area of the yacht that has been specially designed to be flexible in size. At the touch of a button, the seamlessly integrated balconies on all three sides of the deck open up to create an extended area. Measuring 24-square-metres long, the space houses a second swimming pool, a bar and sun pads. A retractable ladder directly connects the sun deck and the upper deck at the bow, making the latter a natural extension of the former.

Moving from the aft area into the main saloon, guests are greeted by floor-to-ceiling glazing to keep that all-important constant contact with the sea whilst indoors. Francesco Paszkowski Design also worked with Margherita Casprini on the yacht’s ultra-modern interior.

Elsewhere, a sauna and gym are found in the lower deck’s spa, and the nearby engine room is home to the yacht’s standard hybrid propulsion system that comes with an efficient navigation mode, reducing both costs and environmental impact. When cruising in electric-diesel mode, the T52 will have a range of up to 7,600 nm and will be able to remain at anchor for up to 10 hours on battery power only. Coupled with twin MTU 16V2000M86 engines, she can also reach a maximum speed of 17 knots and a range of 3,600 nm in traditional navigation mode.
