UPDATE, MARCH 16, 2021: Following the delivery of Run Away, Baglietto has sold hull number two in the DOM series. Specifically, she is a DOM133 (40 meters).
Read on for our original article.
Part of the allure of yachting is casting off the lines and leaving the stresses of land behind. The owner of Run Away is getting the first tastes of this aboard the newly delivered yacht.
The 122’4″ (37.3 meters) megayacht is from the CCN division of the Baglietto Group in Italy. Additionally, she’s part of the DOM series, so-named for the Latin word domus, which means “home.” The shipyard created the line with Stefano Vafiadis of Studio Vafiadis. The guiding principle for the series is the feel of being within a floating residence. Therefore, rooms and on-deck areas are intimate and relaxing. Simultaneously, of course, buyers get the benefits of the serenity that comes with being at sea, and the airiness that typically accompanies yacht design.
The all-aluminum Run Away features amenities that the owner personally requested. For example, the master suite contains a private balcony. Furthermore, similar to most buyers these days, he wanted picture-window-like ports. Plus, and notably unusual for a megayacht of her length, Run Away has an elevator connecting all three decks, including the sundeck. Equally unusual, she has six staterooms.
Since leisurely voyages are on the owner’s mind, the twin Caterpillar power package should provide a cruising speed of 15 knots. Top speed should be 16 knots for the ABS-classed yacht.
Two more DOM deliveries are in the works. In fact, one just started construction on spec, which should be ready by the spring of 2023. She features hybrid propulsion, too. A 131-foot (40-meter) DOM will splash before that, though, under contract. Expect to see her next spring.
