How many times have megayacht owners heard “Let’s go!” when it comes to cruising? We think it’s probably as many times as they’ve said it themselves. It’s certainly the right spirit. And, it’s surely the spirit behind the newest Baglietto, Andiamo.
Andiamo is a full-displacement cruiser, with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. LOA: 157 feet (48 meters). She slipped out of her build shed and into the water for the first time in full view of all of the craftspeople contributing to her build. The build process, by the way, was largely based on that of a slightly smaller Baglietto design, at 151 feet (46 meters). Both sprang from the drawing boards of Francesco Paszkowski Design.
Andiamo does represent some differences, though. One, for example, comes in the wheelhouse. The windows are raked aft, instead of being vertical. It’s a more shippy style, but also quite practical. It actually opens up the field of view, plus is less impacted by sea spray.
Yet another difference aboard Andiamo is how the tender garage sits. It involves side-to launching, just forward of the beach club.
As you would expect, the owner of Andiamo personalized the entire interior. He did so with Francesco Paszkowski and his collaborative partner Margherita Casprini. While no photos are available yet, imagine high-gloss ebony and onyx creating a rich atmosphere. The materials characterize common areas like the saloon and private areas like the five staterooms below decks. (The master sits on the main deck.) Another highlight is a steel- and leather-clad spiral staircase, connecting Andiamo’s three decks.
Comfortable breezes should keep guests cool on the sundeck. It encompasses about 1,507 square feet (140 square meters). Also keeping them cool up here is an infinity pool, with a waterfall. On cloudy or rainy days, guests may instead enjoy the upper-deck cinema. But, once the weather turns nice again, the cinema has fold-down balconies to each side.
Baglietto expects sea trials to confirm a cruising speed of 12 knots for Andiamo. Andiamo should top out at 16 knots, too, with MTU power. Upon her delivery this summer, you can see her in the Med. You can get aboard at the Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show, both in September, too.
