Swift superyachts are a big part of Baglietto’s past. New customers are still attracted to the convenience of cruising at mid-20-knot speeds. To stay true to that spirit yet incorporate more modern looks and conveniences, the shipyard gave its Fast series a makeover. Having restyled two models already, Francesco Paszkowski Design has restyled the lines of the third, the 43m Fast.
The 141-foot (43-meter) megayacht preserves the emphasis on speed. In fact, Baglietto says she’ll see a top end of 28 knots and a cruise of 23 knots, with MTU diesel engines. To hint at those speeds, the styling is sleek. It’s not a dramatic departure overall from what historically Baglietto boats have reflected. But, it is more in line with the smooth, elongated look longed for these days.
In addition, the Baglietto 43m Fast has a lower bulwark. It’s similar to what the shipyard and design studio did with Lucky Me, which measures only a few feet longer. (She’s part of the builder’s 46m Fast range.) The restyling also add in larger windows along the main deck and below decks.
A few new creature comforts come along with the restyling. Now, the Baglietto 43m Fast has shaded space on the flying bridge, thanks to the hardtop. Buyers gain sunning space aft on the main deck, too. This comes courtesy of a somewhat shorter-length superstructure.
The superstructure doesn’t compromise on interior comfort, however. With Margherita Casprini, Francesco Paszkowski Design pushed out usable volume. Fold-down balconies along the main deck should enhance the feeling of space. Finally, while clients can choose the decor items they prefer, the design duo suggests wood soles and muted contemporary colors. They’ve purposely left the beach club as an empty space, since some buyers might want it as a tender garage. Others might want a combination garage and usable lounge.
“The 43m Fast is a yacht that has played a crucial role in Baglietto’s history,” explains Michele Gavino, the shipyard CEO. “This restyling makes it even more attractive for those who love Baglietto’s distinctive high-performance style.”
