A 177-footer (54-meter) currently in build at Baglietto for an American family is finally seeing the light, sort of. We’re getting our first look at the unusual arrangement and ambiance awaiting them. We also now know who’s making it possible.
Initially announced in the summer of 2017, Baglietto kept the megayacht top secret pretty much since then. It only disclosed the exterior profile, the dimensions, and some basic facts about performance, in fact. The megayacht should see a range of 4,500 nautical miles, for example, at a 12-knot cruise. Baglietto hull 10231 has an aluminum hull form created specifically for her. In addition, the 8’5” (2.6-meter) draft should allow accessing a combination of deep-water and relatively shallow anchorages upon delivery in 2020.
Now, however, we know that Horacio Bozzo Design is responsible for styling, and Hot Lab is handling interior design. Baglietto hull 10231 will accommodate family cruising in an unusual way, too. She has two master suites on the main deck. The idea is to dedicate specific areas for the older and younger family members. The latter get four staterooms below decks. In addition, Baglietto says “many areas” are especially for the more youthful family.
Other unusual aspects include a formal dining area on the upper deck. Furthermore, the decor for this upper deck differs from that of the main deck. Baglietto hull 10231 feels more comfortably casual in her saloon, for instance, as well as out on deck. Up one level, meanwhile, as well as in staterooms, the atmosphere is “more elegant and refined,” according to Enrico Lumini, interior chief designer at Hot Lab. The gallery below and one of the master illustrations above show some the differences.
With a 34’1” (10.4-meter) beam, Baglietto hull 10231 (still confidential in terms of her name) combines sand-tone woods, leathers, lacquered surfaces, and brass, along with abundant Italian marble. In addition, Hot Lab uses floor lighting to highlight different surfaces and play with shadows.
