Baglietto T-Line 48 yacht Andiamo delivered
by Chris Jefferies
Italian builder Baglietto has announced the delivery of Andiamo, hull number one in its T-Line 48 series. Launched in June for a Mexican client, she was built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. The yard adds that Andiamo left La Spezia towards the end of July with her owner on board.
Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, said: "The amazing living spaces and six-cabin layout make her the perfect vessel for long cruises with family and friends. We are very proud, as this delivery comes at the end of a very busy period for the shipyard, both in terms of production and sales".
The design 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 from 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. Andiamo will carry forward traditional Baglietto styling cues with modern updates, such as the reverse-angled wheelhouse windows.
Accommodation is for 12 guests split between six custom-designed staterooms. The contemporary interior features high-end finishes in onyx and lacquered ebony. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to nine people.
On-board relaxation options are plentiful, with a superyacht sundeck that covers 140 square metres of deck space. This area includes a custom-made infinity pool, an al fresco dining area, served by a barbecue and a bar. Meanwhile, the upper deck saloon has been designated as the on-board cinema, and also boasts fold-out superyacht balconies on both sides.
Power comes from a pair of 2,012hp MTU 12V4000 M63 diesel engines for a top speed of 16 knots. When trimmed back to her 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.
Andiamo 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. The yard plans to exhibit her at this year's Cannes and Monaco boat shows.
Other superyachts currently under development at the Italian yard include Baglietto Project 10228, which is due to hit the water next year as the sister ship to Andiamo.
