Baglietto launches first 42m Wide Body superyacht
by Tim Thomas
The first version of the Wide Body line from Baglietto has been launched in Italy. The 42m all-aluminium yacht, the first of which has been named Lucky Me, comes from the boards of designer Francesco Paszkowski and the concept has been specifically developed to offer fast cruising on an 8m beam platform. Performance figures include a top speed of 29 knots, while a 25-knot cruising speed is projected to give a range of 700 miles. Power comes from a twin MTU 16V 4000 M90 installation.
The interior, also designed by Paszkowski, features a full-beam master suite forward on the main deck, which offers the owner a study and seating area, main bedroom, a dressing room, and an en suite complete with 'wellness spa'. Two balconies offer the master suite direct contact with the outdoors, and these are mirrored by two further balconies in the main saloon. Décor for the interior of Lucky Me centres around contemporary elegance, with teak and white-painted oak the predominant woods for the walls.
The yard is currently busy on several other projects, with a 43m displacement yacht, a 41m semi-displacement yacht and a 46m displacement yacht all due for completion over the coming months.
