First look: 54m Baglietto Project 10231 revealed
by Chris Jefferies
This displacement yacht will be built from an aluminium hull and superstructure to Lloyd’s Registry standards and launched in 2020.
This first image confirms that Project 10231 will be a tri-deck motor yacht and the large expanses of glass in the superstructure suggest a bright interior. Circular portholes towards the bow add a certain classical allure, while the detail around the saloon hints that a fold-out superyacht balcony will be fitted in this area.
The identity of the designers is still unknown, but the yard explains that project will feature a new hull form with the naval architecture having been developed in-house. Her vital statistics include a 10.4 metre beam and a maximum draught of 2.6 metres. What’s more, the owner has given the yard a very specific brief in terms of comfort and style.
Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, said: “I am very proud of this new build — it rewards the hard work the shipyard has been doing during the last year. We have made a great effort in research and development of a new product range and this special yacht, based on a brand new platform both in terms of engineering and styling, confirms we are following the right directions.”
Baglietto has yet to confirm the engine installation it will provide, but it is understood that this new displacement yacht will be capable of a maximum cruising range of 4,500 nautical miles at 12 knots. Further details are few and far between, with the total number of guest and crew cabins still undisclosed.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include a 43.65 metre addition to its Fast collection, a 48 metre sistership to the T-Line 48 yacht Andiamo, and a 55 metre steel and aluminium yacht known as Project 10225.
