New Build: Baglietto 46-Meter


At nearly 151 feet LOA, this Baglietto 46-meter is under construction at the Italian shipyard. In fact, construction started some months ago. Baglietto only just released details about her now.

The Baglietto 46-meter was ordered by a client from Eastern Europe. The project is part of the builder’s Displacement Line series. She bears design by Francesco Paszkowski, the same naval architect behind the Baglietto Fast Line series. Paszkowski has graced the steel-hulled megayacht with both soft and sharp lines. Note particularly the rounded stern, the bow flare, and the angularity of the forward upper structures.

Full specs aren’t available yet for the displacement Baglietto 46-meter. However, the same-size Fast Line megayacht has a beam of 30’2” (9.2 meters). So far we do know that the new megayacht will have twin Caterpillar engines. This should permit a 12-knot cruise and 17-knot top end. The cruise speed should allow a 4,500-nautical-mile range. The Baglietto 46-meter will be classed to ABS and fall beneath the 500-gross-ton threshold, too.

Some of the megayacht’s key features are a beach club exceeding 269 square feet (25 square meters). A separate tender garage holds an 18-foot (5.5-meter) dinghy, a PWC, and a rescue tender. The Baglietto 46-meter has a traditional accommodations arrangement. A saloon, dining area, and galley are all on the main deck. There’s a main-deck master, too, with four guest staterooms below decks. Two of the guest staterooms have twin beds. There are all twin beds in the four crew cabins as well. And, as you’d expect, the captain’s cabin is abaft the wheelhouse.

Delivery of this Baglietto 46-meter is set for early next year. That will be a few months after a sistership premieres at the fall boat shows. A same-size Fast Line yacht will follow later next year. So, too, will a 177-footer (54-meter).

H1, First Sanlorenzo SL118

Sanlorenzo SL118 H1

Here’s H1, just launched for a German owner at SanlorenzoH1 is the first of the new Sanlorenzo SL118 series. The all-fiberglass yacht is 118 feet (36.5 meters), as her model name suggests. Styling reflects the family feel of the entire SL range, from Francesco Paszkowski Design.

Until H1 was commissioned, the SL range started at 62 feet and capped at 108 feet. The Italy-based yard decided to add the Sanlorenzo SL118 to capture buyers interested in bigger megayachts.

The all-fiberglass Sanlorenzo SL118 has a mix of familiar and new features. For example, like the SL94 and SL104, she has fold-down balconies off the main-deck master and saloon. Although not see on H1, the Sanlorenzo SL118 can show off metallic paint for the hardtop or radar arch and the aft curvature of the main deck. (It gives the impression that the supports for the hardtop or arch extend down through the flying bridge and into the deck below.)

Distinguishing the Sanlorenzo SL118 from her smaller sisters is a full-beam (24’9”, or 7.6 meters) main deck, without side decks. Only the bridge deck is a walk-around configuration. Of course, like all the builder’s yachts and megayachts, the Sanlorenzo SL118 is customized inside. The owner of H1 collaborated with the Francesco Paszkowski Design team, requesting several specialized touches. Among them are glass inserts in the guest-stateroom bulkheads. This lets more natural light permeate the accommodations for eight. There’s also a modern decor here and on the main deck, where the master suite is situated.

Sea trials are expected to confirm a cruise speed around 24 knots. The Sanlorenzo SL118 is powered by twin 16V 2000 M94 MTUs. H1 still has some other systems installations awaiting, however. One notable item: a water-treatment system. It reportedly will let H1 cruise in some environmentally sensitive regions that are protected by strict regulations.

H1, with a 7’4” (2.25-meter) draft at full load, is set for delivery by summertime.

Canados 120, Christened Far Away, Hits the Water

When’s the last time you saw two owner’s suites aboard a 119-foot megayacht? Those are among the highlights of Far Away, the newest Canados to launch.

Far Away is the first Canados 120 model, the flagship in the Italian builder’s flying-bridge series of large yachts and megayachts. She bears naval architecture and sleek exterior styling from Canados’ in-house team. Two fold-down balconies in the saloon and two in the dining area help bring the outside in, as do good-size ports on the main and lower decks. Canados’ in-house engineering department also gave Far Away a fold-down beach club. When the tender, the PWC, and two SeaBobs are offloaded, guests can use the area as a relaxation spot or a toy boarding and disembarking spot, with a handy shower and head as well.

Since the Canados 120 was intended for some speed, similar to her smaller sisters, the megayacht has a planing hull that reportedly permits a 29-knot top speed and 25-knot cruise speed, with a 2,400-hp MTU power package.

Like all Canados offerings, the Canados 120’s interior was open to the owner’s choice of designer. Far Away’s owner selected Francesco Paszkowski Design. Besides the two master cabins, both of which are below decks, the megayacht also unusually features just two guest cabins. Furthermore, one of those guest staterooms is on the main deck.

While metallic accents aren’t unheard of in yacht decors, the use of titanium makes Far Away out of the ordinary, too. Paszkowski selected varying shades of gray in fabrics, stonework, and stained woods like oak and ebony to complement the titanium. Though no images are yet available, it should make for a striking look within the 23’8” (7.25-meter) beam.

Far Away does have some features akin to other flying-bridge megayachts. The uppermost deck is devoted to alfresco relaxation and dining. Should anyone want shade, the fixed hardtop provides it. Another alfresco area toward the bow can have a bimini fitted when wanted. And, as is increasingly common aboard all megayachts, the lighting, air conditioning, and more are controlled via iPads, set up by the yard’s in-house team.

Seventh Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy, Christened 111

What’s your lucky number? For the owners of the latest Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy, it seems to be 111, since that’s the name they’ve given their new megayacht.

111 is the seventh Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy, built entirely in aluminum (hence “Alloy” in the megayacht’s model name). She bears naval architecture by Francesco Paskowski, who designed the entire series as well as several other Sanlorenzo yachts. Like her sisterships, 111 has balconies off the master stateroom and saloon, plus the signature gullwing doors. There’s further a small gym contained within the master, a layout option a few owners have selected. Since the megayacht series allows owners to customize interior decor, too, 111 bears a combination of olive ash and burned oak. Olive ash is actually just ash wood, though characterized by dark grains. That, with the dark grains of burned oak, should make for an interesting effect within the 25-foot beam.

Sanlorenzo’s 111 should see a good turn of speed as well. Twin MTU 12V 4000 M93s have allowed for 28-knot top ends and 26-knot cruise speeds on prior Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy launches.

Souraya, the Latest Sanlorenzo

Meet Souraya, the newest Sanlorenzo SD122 megayacht. She’s the fifth in the series, which was introduced in 2008. Specifically, Souraya joins the likes of Feluca, Anastasia M, Bikini Queen, and Santa Anna.

The SD122 series bears styling from Francesco Paszkowski. “SD” stands for “semi-displacement,” while “122” refers to her LOA in feet (37.44 in meters). Each SD122 is built of fiberglass, blending contemporary and classic styling elements. Inside, each owner can tailor the general arrangement and decor. Souraya’s owners selected eucalyptus wood for soles and furnishings, with stainless steel inlays additionally adorning furniture. Within the accommodations for 10 in the owner’s party, all baths feature two types of marble, with cream and earth tones. Seven crewmembers are also housed aboard.

Based on previous SD122 deliveries, Souraya should see a 17-knot top end and 12-knot cruise speed. Power is provided by twin Caterpillar engines.
