First Baglietto 46m Fast yacht carries out sea trials
by Chris Jefferies
The first model in the Baglietto 46m Fast superyacht series has undergone sea trials off La Spezia. Launched last month, this model marks the birth of the Italian yard’s Fast line.
The aluminium planing yacht has been designed inside and out by Francesco Paszkowski Design. It has a dynamic profile, with a receding bow and strong stern, which typify the builder’s style. Trapezoidal ports, alternated with rectangular windows at two different levels, give the 46m Fast a more contemporary exterior look.
The outdoor areas of the Baglietto 46m Fast have been maximised to give the feeling of being close to the sea while cruising or at anchor. The bow features a swimming pool and conversation area covered by a bimini. The teak main deck aft accommodates a large table and a sunbathing area.
Interiors include four lower deck guest cabins and an owner’s suite with a wellness area, office and dressing room located on the main deck. The upper deck, which has been designed like an open terrace, includes the sky lounge with conversation area, captain’s cabin and the wheelhouse. The four crew cabins, galley and crew mess are on the lower deck.
Two MTU 16V4000 engines will push the yacht to a top speed of about 28 knots. The limited height of the compact superstructure improves aerodynamics.
The Baglietto 46m Fast includes interiors by Paszkowski and architect Margherita Casprini that feature warm shades of rosewood and white lacquered ceilings to produce a contemporary style.
The yacht will make its public debut in September at the Cannes and Monaco Boat Shows.
