Baglietto announces the sale of first motor yacht in the new FAST50 line

 La Spezia, 26th June 2024 _Only a few months after the new model was presented to the Press, Baglietto is pleased to announce the sale of the first unit in the FAST50 line – a fast displacement yacht in light alloy designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, who has also pencilled her interiors in cooperation with Margherita Casprini.

“We are delighted to have secured this sale just a few months after officially presenting the model to the Press – comments Baglietto’s CCO Fabio Ermetto – This is a tangible acknowledgement of the value of a project capable of flawlessly combining top performances and timeless elegance, two of Baglietto’s distinctive hallmarks. Features that confirm our shipyard’s leadership in the segment of highly customized aluminium performance yachts. Thanks to four powerful engines this displacement hull can reach considerable speeds with no detriment to the great comfort and onboard liveability required by the market and expressed at best by the FAST50 line.”

The key inspiration were the sleek lines of Baglietto’s historical production, real trend setters in nautical design: iconic boats like the Pachamama, the Monokini (which won the Compasso d’Oro award in 2016) or RUSH, last year’s WSA winner. The FAST50 retains the unmistakable family feeling of her predecessors while adding ‘quotes’ from the new course that the brand has undertaken starting with the T52. The design of the stern, in particular, draws on some of the innovative elements introduced in the more traditional line: developing on 2 levels, with the gunwale folding to convert into a swimming platform, the aft area is perfect to enjoy life in close contact with the sea, also thanks to the sunbeds in the form of chaise longues that offer an exclusive, breathtaking view. A transformer replaces the traditional passerelle, flawlessly preserving the yacht’s elegant line.

Just like the T52, this model is characterized by a smooth, seamless transition between interiors and exteriors, thanks to the ceiling-high windows that open on three sides on the upper and to the lower gunwales that maximize the view. With the ventilation ducts moved outside, perfectly integrated in the hull structure, the main saloon can rely on very generous spaces, hosting a lounge area and a TV area, while the dining area has been arranged in the sky lounge on the upper deck.

From the design of the ventilation ducts to the two fairleads at the stern reminding of sports car exhausts, many are the references to the automotive world on this yacht.

Unlike the fast models that preceded her, the FAST50 has 3 full decks and embraces the ‘wide body’ concept in the master cabin. This means even larger volumes without however losing in visibility, thanks to 2 silk-screened hull windows that offer a magnificent view while preserving the yacht‘s streamlined profile.

Equally generous are the outdoor areas of the upper deck, both aft and forward of the wheelhouse: sun loungers and sofas furnish the area at the stern, while a conversation area and a pleasant private sunbathing area have been arranged forward, completed by a Jacuzzi hot tub at the extreme bow to take in the amazing beauty of the landscape while enjoying the utmost privacy.  

Two VIP and two twin cabins, all ensuite, welcome guests on the lower deck. Moving forward, the crew quarters include a large dinette, the Captain’s cabin and 4 more cabins with pullman beds.

Worth mentioning is also the tender, which can be up to an impressive 7 meters long, stored in a float-in garage located behind the engine room. Four MTU 2000M96L engines push the yacht at a maximum speed of 30 knots. The hull is fitted with limited-draught semi-tunnels ensuring safe cruising even in shallow waters.

Baglietto:

Boat builder Baglietto specialises in the construction of new planing aluminium yachts and steel & aluminium displacement and semi-displacement mega-yachts ranging between 35 and 65 metres in length. 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, considerable investments were made to extensively renovate the entire production site: 3 new sheds 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. An approximately 1,200-ton travel lift – the largest in Europe – allows for the haulage and launch of up-to-65 m long yachts. The operating site in Carrara, conversely, comprises 2 areas of 5,000 sq. m each. One is used to build military crafts under the Baglietto Navy brand as well as some models of the iconic brand Bertram Yachts, which joined the Baglietto Group in 2015; the second area is equipped with 4 new sheds for the construction of the DOM line and yachts up to 46 m long.
