Baglietto signs new order for another DOM 133 and announces the sale of 40 m hull no. 10243
La Spezia, 28th June 2021 _Just one week after securing yet another order for a DOM 133, hull no.10244, Baglietto announces the sale of hull no. 10243, too. By selling the third unit in the series DOM 133, which the shipyard had started building on speculation, Baglietto reaches sale number four of this model, pencilled by Stefano Inglese Vafiadis.
“That of DOM 133, four hulls sold in just a matter of weeks, is an unprecedented success – comments Baglietto’s CCO Fabio Ermetto – although, perhaps, not a surprising one, considering what it stems from: extraordinary volumes for a yacht of this size, modern and captivating lines, and a layout leaving no market needs unmet – all “ingredients’ that make the DOM 133 just the ideal cruiser”. This perfect ‘DOMUS’ (meaning ‘home’ in Latin, the word the line name originally comes from) can indeed offer her guests a beach club on two levels, where the infinity pool lifting bottom can rise to make the already spacious cockpit even larger; panoramic windows that open up to become terraces; the possibility to install a lift; and, not least of all, a limited draught allowing to easily cruise even in the shallow waters of the Bahamas.
“With Stefano Vafiadis – continues Fabio Ermetto – we devised a modern project that we wanted capable of meeting today’s needs, thought out for a dynamic owner that loves comfort but will not compromise on performances. Choosing aluminium to build this yacht, in particular, proved to be a winning, strategic solution. As a matter of fact, when compared to fibreglass, aluminium ensures not only higher quality and onboard comfort, but also greater flexibility and the possibility to make changes that will result in highly-customised exteriors. Customisation, though, reaches its peak in the interiors, where we are able to meet our Client’s wish for unique, ad-hoc solutions. ”
Like previous models, this unit – to be delivered in 2023 – comes with two Caterpillar C32 engines that will push her to an impressive maximum speed of 17 knots.
The shipyard recently started to build on speculation a fifth twin unit, which will be fitted with standard hybrid propulsion and be ready for delivery in 2024.
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.
