Baglietto turns hull of 40m fast displacement yacht

Baglietto turns hull of 40m fast displacement yacht

Italian yard Baglietto has turned the hull of its new build 40 metre fast displacement yacht.

The construction milestone took place in late November, according to the yard's announcement on social media.

The new custom design is being built at the yard's La Spezia facility from aluminium and will be delivered to an American client, though the yard has not disclosed a target launch date.

Exterior styling comes courtesy of Horacio Bozzo — in lieu of a rendering, Baglietto described the yacht’s profile as “sporty and elegant”. For the interior decor, London-based design architect Achille Salvagni will take the lead. Both designers are working with Baglietto for the first time.

Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, explained that although the order was placed in early 2018, it was the culmination of a particularly successful 2017 for the yard.

“Following the signature of a contract for a 54 metre yacht last summer, this is the second fully-custom project we have secured,” he added.

“To build these new yachts, we have developed two platforms capable of meeting the requirements and performance expected by our clients, this bears witness, once more, to our shipyard’s will to keep pursuing technical innovation and developing our naval engineering capabilities.”

Further details are undisclosed at this stage.
