Baglietto hull no. 10238, better known as the premiere of the Baglietto T52 yacht series, has started the month of February strongly for the Italian shipyard. The launch and christening took place earlier this week in a private ceremony.
The keel laying for hull no. 10238 took place in late 2020. To date, eight hulls are in various stage of development or construction. LOA is 171 feet (52 meters), with “T” standing for “tradition.” Francesco Paszkowski Design worked with the shipyard to pay homage to its long history in a style that simultaneously blends contemporary lines. For example, floor-to-ceiling glass on the main and upper decks is in keeping with modern tastes. The upper-deck glass slides open on three sides, too. Additionally, the profile lines slope toward an open-style stern, which has three cascading levels as well. One of the levels features a pool, which drains and blends into the rest of the deck area thanks to a raising floor.
“Seeing one of our vessels touch the water is always incredibly exciting for us,” says Fabio Ermetto, Baglietto’s CCO. “But when this happens with the first one in a new line, the excitement is even greater.”
Adding to the excitement, he continues, hull no. 10238 has hybrid propulsion, “marking a crucial step also in terms of research and development in our shipyard’s path toward sustainable yachting.” Specifically, this Baglietto T52 yacht has twin MTUs and batteries that each can engage individually. In fact, on battery power alone, she can run her hotel loads at anchor for 10 hours. In diesel-electric cruising mode, she should see a range of 7,600 nautical miles. Finally, with just her MTUs engaged, she should see a 3,600-nautical-mile range, plus a top speed of 17 knots when needed.
When the owners and guests eventually stay onboard, they have a variety of leisure spaces to enjoy. Besides their staterooms, which reflect a “strong personality” according to Baglietto, they have an expansive sundeck. It’s nearly 79 feet (24 meters) long. And, the above-mentioned upper deck contains a dining area and conversation area that become open-air thanks to the sliding glass.
Delivery takes place prior to the summer.
