What better name for a fast yacht than Rush? The all-aluminum 138-footer (42-meter), which should top out at 28 knots, lowered into the water at Baglietto on May 7.
Rush even looks fast. She has long, lean lines from Francesco Paszkowski Design, with dark-grey paint accentuating her sharp hull. P.L.A.N.A. Design engineered her hull to perform with triple MTUs connecting to two traditional props and a VOITH waterjet drive between them. Baglietto aptly referred to her as a Superfast 42 model during her build.
Although the shipyard hasn’t revealed the owner’s cruising plans, some relatively shallow waters might be on the eventual itinerary. It’s due to Rush having a 6’9” (2.1-meter) draft. Whether in those waters or elsewhere, the owner and guests can enjoy a variety of activities. For example, the transom folds down for swimmers’ access and to create a seaside lounge, complete with settees. Should guests prefer a trip to shore, they can use the platform to board the tender, which launches from a side garage.
Elsewhere onboard, entertainment and relaxation are equally the priority. For instance, Rush has the sky lounge serve a cinema room. Indoor dining takes place on the main deck, while alfresco dining occurs aft of the cinema. Good conversations are the focus of the main aft deck as well as part of the aft upper deck near the alfresco dining spot. Finally, sunbathers will enjoy the traditional foredeck pads and upper deck pads.
Details on the decor remain quiet for now. However, Francesco Paszkowski Design and Margherita Casprini worked with the owner to ensure the look and feel suited his style. They collaborated on the four guest staterooms below and the crew area (with a captain’s cabin, three crew cabins, and dinette), too.
You can tour Rush at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
