BAGLIETTO AT THE 59th EDITION OF THE FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW

30 October 2018

T-LINE, V-LINE, FAST LINE AND MV LINE:

ALL THE POWER OF A CONSTANTLY-EVOLVING RANGE

 

Fort Lauderdale, October 30th, 2018 _ A revitalized product range already in place, a new office in Florida and a development strategy that sets clearly-defined objectives with a special focus on the US market; this is how Baglietto is preparing to take part in the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, to be held from October 31st to November 4th.

The United States, and in general the Americas, are the most important market for us after the European one,” comments Baglietto’s CEO Michele Gavino. “This is why we have opened our second office here in Fort Lauderdale and we have entrusted it to a professional with an in-depth knowledge of this market. In Miami this February, we will have a chance again, after a very long time, to display our latest model, the 48 m Silver Fox. I think this will also be the perfect occasion to allow American customers to see Baglietto’s unique style with their own eyes and experience Baglietto’s building expertise first-hand.”

 Baglietto has always leveraged design, tradition combined with innovation, and outstanding quality, to offer the market world-class, unmistakably Made-in-Italy projects. This has been the Seagull brand’s winning strategy and its truly distinguishing feature for over 160 years now.

The Italian boat builder can now boast four unique lines that retrace its long-standing tradition, reinterpreting it in a contemporary key while always preserving the brand’s truest identity.

The most classic line is the T-line, the latest model of which – 48 m Silver Fox – was in the spotlight at the Cannes and Monaco boat shows in September and will soon make her debut in the United States at the 2019 Miami International Boat Show. Besides her traditional bulbous bow and soft, sinuous lines, reflecting many of Baglietto’s traditional stylistic features as designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, the Silver Fox stands out in particular for her spacious interior volume and her comfortable, functional outdoor areas. The displacement and semi-displacement steel & aluminium models in this line range from 38 m to 62 m, reaching 70 m in a project pencilled by the Dutch design firm Mulder Design. A 55 m yacht and a sister ship of the Silver Fox are currently under construction.

The V-line is characterised by more stylistic experimentation, with yachts having a vertical bow and more aggressive lines. The shipyard’s idea is to design vessels that, while preserving a strong bond with the brand’s distinctive stylistic features, are capable of meeting the needs and tastes of an ever-evolving market. This ambitious task has been entrusted to Francesco Paszkowski, who has already designed 4 different projects ranging from 38 m to 65 m (a fifth one is currently being developed), as well as to Hot Lab and Santa Maria Magnolfi, two Italian design firms that have skilfully integrated the shipyard’s culture, Italian style, and recent design trends. This line includes a wide range of models, from 38 m to 65 m.

The Fast aluminium line follows in the wake of the tradition of high-performance boats in this brand – yachts featuring slender, aggressive profiles that are built with a special focus on speed without ever sacrificing attention to comfort. This line includes two different models, a 43 m and a 46 m, currently represented by iconic yachts Pachamama and Lucky Me.

Drawing inspiration from the MAS boats (torpedo-armed motorboats) from World War One and World War Two, Baglietto’s MV (Motoscafi Veloci – Fast Motorboats) line rewrites an important chapter in the brand’s history in the military sector, combining some traditional stylistic elements with architectural solutions taken from the world of open yachts. The MV13 and MV19 are the two series in this line – fast and bold-looking day boats that will conquer those who love flying on the water.

The wide range proposed by the shipyard, however, by no means limits choices for Baglietto owners, who can always rely on Baglietto’s total flexibility and take advantage of its fully-custom production. Two examples are the 54 m and 40 m orders that are currently under construction and expected to be delivered in 2020, based on brand-new, fully-custom naval platforms.

Focusing on research and sustainability, thanks to new environmentally-friendly solutions and options that ensure a limited environmental impact, will be one of the shipyard’s missions for the future. Several scientific partnerships have already been established, aimed at verifying the possibility to use innovative materials and new technologies.

At Baglietto, Italian design and craftsmanship, recognized all over the world, and the utmost care for customers go hand in hand with cutting-edge technology and performance. Baglietto can rely on a state-of-the-art, entirely renovated shipyard, capable of ensuring an average production rate of 3/4 yachts per year. To date, there are 5 yachts under construction at the modern La Spezia shipyard: a 43 m Fast Line HT; a 55 m yacht designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, to be completed in 2019; a 54 m craft and a 40 m vessel, both with exteriors designed by Horacio Bozzo and interiors by Hot Lab and Achille Salvagni, respectively, and both to be delivered in 2020; and – last, but not least – the production on speculation for a third 48 m model in the T-Line, the sister ship of the Silver Fox, has been initiated, with delivery also expected in 2020.

 

The Baglietto Shipyard:

Boat builder Baglietto Spa, based in La Spezia (Italy), specialises in the construction of new planing aluminium yachts ranging between 35 and 50 metres in length and steel & aluminium displacement mega-yachts above 40 metres. The company’s activities also include world-class repair and refitting services, as well as the construction of military crafts, the Seagull brand’s traditional business, under the Baglietto Navy brand. Extending over a more-than-35,000 sq. metre area overlooking the Gulf of the Poets – a truly strategic area for mega-yacht traffic in the Tyrrhenian sea -, the shipyard recently completed an extensive reconstruction project that involved both its manufacturing and commercial facilities.
