Baglietto provided the largest yacht at the Cannes Yachting Festival this year with its 48M T-Line. Not only was it the largest present during the event, but the superyacht was also sold on the very first day of the show. The new 157-foot superyacht is the yard’s first in-house design since the new executive team took over the iconic brand three years ago. Baglietto built its first vessel in 1854 and has since come a long way as they move into the next chapter of its history with its new design.
Baglietto CEO Michele Gavino undoubtfully knew Francesco Paszkowski, as the exclusive designer, shaped Baglietto into what they are today for nearly a decade. The Italian designer is the person behind the signature look given to the yacht line and that is why Gavino commissioned Paszkowski to do the exterior for the outstanding 48M T-Line.
However, Gavino desired to offer clients a fresh twist on the interior of the superyacht. By focusing on new features that clients requested and also adding some well-thought-out surprises for good measure, according to Robb Report. Gavino’s in-house team of designers and architects were tasked to come up with its most beautiful interior to ever be created. The task was to go beyond conventional design while combining contemporary vibes with a sense of adventure.
The team at Baglietto used Italian walnut as the base wood, pairing with gorgeous gold and bronze accents. They used light-toned carpet and cream-colored leathers to display an eye-catching interior. To counterpoint the darker joinery and tables, the company designed a light-colored Canaletto-nut-pattern wood floor for the saloon and staterooms. Floor-to-ceiling windows bathed the saloon and skylounge with natural light while the paneling on the walls contained irregular cuts of inlaid wood to provide a modern feel.
Exceeding beyond the interior materials, Baglietto thought to use unusual features for the central galley, such as large, walk-in cold rooms that allow several months’ worth of food storage. By adding the cold room, food can be stored for long-distance cruises or even as quick access for a large social event on the superyacht. However, that is not the only use for storage. The designers included a separate room for luggage that belongs to owners and guest on board. The design cues originated from transatlantic ocean liners of the 1920s, although both are still desired on a modern-day superyacht.
Contributing to the 157-foot superyacht is the exceptionally large beach club. The beach club consists of more than 500 square-feet that is devoted to a steam room, bar, and a large area that can be used for a variety of activities, including a gym, spa, or as a quiet retreat center. When sitting in the beach club, views of the open ocean are peacefully enjoyed.
Paszkowski’s exterior work does not go unnoticed. The exterior includes social areas on the foredeck, flybridge and aft cockpit for dinner in the beautiful outdoors. You already ate? Not a problem, you can enjoy reading or simply taking a nap as you soak in the sun, thanks to Paszkowski’s exterior planning. The sundeck features 1,400 square-feet of open space.
Baglietto’s 48M T-Line is powered by twin Caterpillar diesel engines, providing the superyacht with top-end speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
After Cannes, the superyacht will appear in the Genoa Boat Show, where it is likely to gain all the spotlight yet again. From there, the super yacht will move to the Monaco Yacht Show, before being delivered to the new lucky owner.
