BAGLIETTO ANNOUNCE THE SALE OF SIXTH T52
Baglietto is proud to announce the sale of sixth T52 hull with hybrid propulsion. It marks the fifth sale of the year for the La Spezia- based shipyard.
La Spezia, 19 May 2022_ Baglietto scores another major achievement, closing the deal for the sixth T52 – the 52 m yacht penciled by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The sale of hull #10253 was secured thanks to the precious support of Kirill Kuatov of Alberton Yacht.
The yacht will be equipped with an improved hybrid propulsion system that will allow to choose a more efficient navigation mode, reducing both costs and environmental impact. When cruising in electrical diesel mode, the yacht will be able to remain at anchor for up to 12 hours relying on the batteries only. However, her two Caterpillar C32 engines will also allow her to reach quite a maximum speed of 16 knots and a range of 4.500 nm in traditional navigation mode.
“We are very proud of this deal we reached thank you to the excellent collaboration with Kirill Kuatov and his technical team – says Baglietto’s Chief Commercial Officer Fabio Ermetto. Six T52 sold is an extraordinary result especially if you consider the first model hasn’t hit the water yet The key to the T52’s success – continues Ermetto- has to be found in the perfect mix of design and current market demands – such as amazing volumes and liveability – to which Baglietto has responded through original, innovative solutions confirming this model has no real competition in the market of yacht below 500 GT.”
Designer Francesco Paszkowski has created an incredibly stylish modern yacht, characterized by slender, sinuous lines that well reflect Baglietto’s contemporary soul while leaving the brand’s glorious tradition unscathed; the fortunate combination of such elegance and beauty and the shipyard’s ability to meet today’s market needs and requirements has resulted in a unique vessel that stands out for her strong character and distinctive personality.
Close contact with the sea is ensured by the original open stern featuring a beach club that develops over 3 levels and has already become a hallmark of Baglietto’s new course. The large pool can easily be concealed thanks to an ingenious up-down moving flooring system that further extends the available deck surface when the pool is not being used.
On the upper deck, the wide floor-to-ceiling windows opening on 3 sides create a pleasant “al fresco” lounge, with a conversation area and a dining area to be enjoyed in all weather conditions.
The approximately 24-metre-long sundeck – another distinguishing feature on Baglietto yachts – is unmatched on a vessel of this size and volume, and follows in the wake of Baglietto’s traditional displacement yachts.
The delivery of the yacht is expected in 2025.
Boat builder Baglietto specialises in the construction of new planing aluminium yachts ranging between 38 and 50 metres in length and steel & aluminium displacement mega-yachts above 40 metres. Baglietto can currently rely on 2 production sites, in La Spezia (headquarters) and Carrara (operating site). The La Spezia headquarters extend over an area of approximately 35,000 sq. m. Over the last few years, the entire production site has been extensively renovated and enlarged. Three new sheds (the last one was inaugurated in March 2020) allowing for the construction of yachts up to 65 m in length were built in La Spezia, as well as new fully-equipped quays, to berth vessels of up to 70 m. The operating site in Carrara, conversely, comprises 2 areas of 5,000 sq. m each. One is used to build military crafts, while in the other – now equipped with 4 new sheds – yachts up to 50 m in length are built. Baglietto’s activities are set to grow considerably, not only with regard to the construction of new pleasure vessels, but also in the military sector, with the BAGLIETTO NAVY brand, under which 2 crafts for the Italian Navy are currently under construction.
