The 131-foot (40-meter) Panam is floating on her lines in the waters off the Baglietto shipyard. In just a few short weeks, the owner will be putting her anticipated 31-knot top speed to the test.
The aluminum megayacht is for an Italian owner, from an entirely Italian team, too. Besides Baglietto being in the Italian city of La Spezia, Panam features sleek styling by fellow countryman Francesco Paszkowski. That styling includes a vertical bow and asymmetrical ports, which of course still bring plentiful sunlight inside. Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini have been working with the owner for the interior design, too.
Since performance is a big part of Panam, she has triple MTU engines and three KaMeWa waterjets, one of the latter serving as a booster. Besides having a fast top speed, the megayacht should cruise just as quickly, an expected 25 knots. Helping to keep weight down for this performance, the shipyard constructed parts of the four hull hatches aft of carbon fiber composite.
Those hatches include one for the tender garage, a floodable compartment. Panam can carry a 17-foot (5.2-meter) tender, which can float up to the garage entry before crew assist in the rest of her transition inside. Additionally, another three hatches open up the beach club.
As much as the owner and up to 9 guests will enjoy watersports and swimming, feeling relaxed and at peace while inside is important, too. This explains why the owner requested a “green” wall, lush with plants, between the saloon and formal dining area on the main deck. It’s further why, for his suite, the owner wanted a hammam in his en suite bath. It has electrically opening ports to the sides as well.
With warm woods, subdued colors, plus onyx and marble, Panam is the third launch of the summer for Baglietto. Just last week, the builder splashed Run Away, a.k.a. Project DOM123. In late June, an American owner celebrated the launch of Hull 10232. On a related note, Panam has been taking shape at CCN, the builder’s sister shipyard, Baglietto’s management team indicated earlier this year that the two shipyards were uniting under the Baglietto name.
