A few days after the release of a new website, Baglietto has launched its first yacht since the rebirth of this famous Italian yard. This 44-metre superyacht is called Monokini.

Diego Michele Deprati, CEO of Baglietto commented: 'Saturday's launch is a milestone for our shipyard and makes us all extremely proud as it is a tangible sign of the rebirth of this glorious brand.'

Monokini is an evolution of the 44m Fast Line that has seen two launchs in the past with Tatiana per Sempre in 2007 and Apache II in 2009. Like her sisters before her, Monokini was designed by Francesco Paszkowski with in-house naval architecture by Baglietto. But the new yacht stands out with an all-over silver paint job.

The relaxing interior, designed by Alberto Mancini, accommodates 10 guests in five cabins on the lower deck, including a full-beam master suite. Crew quarters are for eight.

RINA classed and MCA compliant, Monokini is powered by twin 2,685kW MTU engines giving a top speed of 30 knots.

Monokini will be delivered this summer and will be displayed at the Festival de la Plaisance of Cannes and Monaco Yacht Show in September.
