The shipyard is still keeping her name confidential. However, Baglietto Hull 10232 celebrated her formal launch at the builder’s facilities in La Spezia, Italy, today. She is the first megayacht to make her way to the water for the brand this year.
Since the owner wanted a fully custom yacht, Baglietto developed the hull design from a blank sheet of paper. With a length of 131 feet (40 meters), Hull 10232 employs a semi-displacement hull form, with a bulbous bow for better seakeeping and efficiency. These combine with a vertical bow. Interestingly, even though vertical bows have been popular for a few years, this is the first time that Baglietto has built a yacht with this type of look. The vertical bow, along with the rest of the yacht’s styling features, comes from Horacio Bozzo Design.
When Baglietto announced the raised-pilothouse design early last year, it released just a hint of a profile drawing. Unfortunately, these photos (the only ones provided) still don’t show too much of Hull 10232, except for the slightest hint of sporty style.
We also don’t have photos or details of what Achille Salvagni Architetti created for the owner and guests inside the yacht. Regardless, the cruises they undertake should be peaceful, since Baglietto says sound attenuation was a priority. In fact, it says sound levels should be only about 40 dBa at her 18-knot top speed. That sound level is similar to being in a library.
While we wait for other information about Baglietto Hull 10232, the shipyard has four other new builds on site at present. For example, Hull 10231, a 177-footer (54-meter), bears Horacio Bozzo Design’s styling with Hot Lab’s interior expertise. She launches this year, too. Additionally, the shipyard recently finished up a new construction shed, for megayachts to 213 feet (65 meters).
