UPDATE, DECEMBER 12, 2019: A South American customer has bought this hull in the Baglietto 48M T-Line series. While we do not know the name, she should see completion in about a year. The shipyard reports that the owner has many years of experience cruising. He and Francesco Paszkowski are making a few style changes, too, to better reflect his preferences.

The Navicelli Channel in Italy dates back to the 1500s, connecting the cities of Livorno and Pisa. Such a historic waterway just welcomed a thoroughly modern megayacht. Hull no. 10233 is the latest Baglietto 48M T-Line, a successful series so far, with a delivery date in fall 2020.
Under tow, the partially completed yacht made her way from Baglietto subcontractor’s shed in Pisa to the shipyard headquarters in La Spezia. Started on spec, and still available for sale, the 156-foot (47.6-meter) megayacht will remain on site until completion.
As a 48M T-Line, the project is a sistership to Andiamo and Silver Fox. Therefore, she has exterior styling by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The studio penned traditional lines (the “T” in “T-Line”) paying homage to Baglietto’s history, with some modern flair. In particular, full-height windows along both the main and upper decks satisfy the desires of today’s buyers. In addition, at anchor, the transom transforms into a beach club. Since tenders stow in a side-launching garage, this frees up the entire aft end for relaxation and fun.
As for the interior design, because this 48M T-Line is still a while from completion, Baglietto wishes to wait for a customer. However, it does have a suggested interior design and arrangement, created in conjunction with a fellow Italian brand. The shipyard is keeping details, including the company name, quiet until the Monaco Yacht Show. Regardless, to give you an idea of the possibilities, four guest staterooms can go below decks. The main deck, meanwhile, can follow current fashions with a full-beam master forward and dining and saloon areas aft.
A few things are set, though. For one, the sundeck encompasses more than 1,500 square feet (140 square meters). The sporty hardtop provides shade when you want it, too. In addition, while the 48M T-Line series has Caterpillar power, the engines aboard this yacht are slightly derated. Baglietto wished to save some fuel, without compromising performance. So, you can expect the yacht to still see a 12-knot cruise and 15-knot max speed.
