La Spezia, 9 May 2022_ Baglietto goes back to its origins, rediscovering and relaunching its iconic planing line, now ready to conquer the future. 42 m aluminium yacht RUSH – designed by Francesco Paszkowski, who pencilled both her exteriors and interiors, the latter in cooperation with Margherita Casprini – was launched Saturday.

The DNA of Baglietto’s latest creation is enshrined in the name the Owner chose for her: “RUSH”, a celebration of speed, high performance, and power. These are undoubtedly the core features of this 42 m aluminium yacht: slender lines and a modern, aggressive look, further enhanced by the dark grey shade of the hull and the extensive use of glazed surfaces on several levels, the final effect being that of a very contemporary exterior style.

The compact Hard Top superstructure, limited in height, also makes a significant contribution to this yacht’s charming, stylish look.
The highly performing, brand-new hull, designed by Plana Design, can reach a remarkable maximum speed of 28 knots thanks to three MTU 16V 2000 M96 L engines with 2 traditional shaft line external drives and a VOITH linear jet central drive.

The limited draught – 2.10 m – also deserves mention, as it allows to easily and comfortably cruise even in very shallow waters.

The stern, too, features innovative design solutions, with the transom door opening downwards to create a pleasant swimming platform on the sea featuring a lounge area furnished with sofas, while a side door makes launching and hauling the tender fast and easy.

Impressive volumes characterise this vessel. Inside, the layout is a traditional one, with the full-beam master stateroom located forward on the main deck and fitted with a large ensuite bathroom and a spacious walk-in wardrobe. A conversation area welcomes guests as they board the yacht on this deck, where the dining area and the galley can also be found.

The night area, situated on the lower deck, includes four guest cabins: 2 double VIP cabins and 2 twin cabins. On the same deck, at the bow, are the crew quarters, with the Captain’s cabin, a dinette, and 3 cabins with bunk beds.

The wheelhouse is on the upper deck and is directly connected to the large sky lounge, where guests will be able to enjoy a conversation area and a cinema room. The dining table is outside. Moving towards the stern, the sunbathing area can be reached, furnished with loungers and seats. Another sunbathing area is available at the bow, also on this deck.

Rush will be presented as a worldwide preview at the next Cannes Yachting Festival in September.

Baglietto:

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 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.
