It comes after the yacht, which is the third hull in Baglietto’s displacement traditional line, hit the water for the first time on June 3. The construction of the yacht was overseen by Camper & Nicholsons, which also acted as the South American owner’s technical advisor.
The exterior design is penned by Francesco Paszkowski Design, which worked closely with the owner to make “stylistic and functional improvements” to Lion’s design in comparison to sisterships Andiamo and Silver Fox.
Designed in-house in collaboration with Leonardo Santi, the interior is defined by "sobriety, calmness and elegance," according to the yard. "Natural and warm colours of bronze and ochre" contrast with "soft shades of brown" throughout.
Built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the yacht offers “impressive volumes and unique outside areas,” said the yard. The 140 square metre sun deck features a swimming pool at the stern surrounded by sunbeds, as well as a lunch area, with a coffee bar, barbecue and refrigerator. This area is directly connected to the galley via a dumb waiter.
Forward of the sun deck, there is a sunbathing area with 360-degree ocean views. A specific request from the owner has seen the inclusion of a crystal lift connecting all decks of the yacht, including the sun deck.
Lion features an upper deck layout that gives more space to the skylounge. This extends outside to create a winter garden and includes a dining table capable of seating 12 guests.
The lower deck layout meanwhile will have two large double cabins that can be transformed into four double cabins thanks to a sliding partition wall - this was another specific request from the owner.
The 46 square metre beach club meanwhile includes a spa with a fully equipped gym and steam bath. The tenders and two jet skis sit at the bow.
Power will come from twin MTU 12V2000M72 engines offering a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots.
