Designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, this new vessel uses Baglietto’s traditional platform (the T-Line) and is expected to be delivered during the 2019 season.

Her soft and sleek lines reflect Baglietto’s traditional style. Together with the lowered gunwales and side air vents, she will embody the Seagull brand’s aesthetic features.

Her layout has been customised and includes six cabins. Features among many others will be a huge beach club area and a sundeck of 160sqm.

“This 55m project is the third work order Baglietto has acquired over the last eight months, a time during which we have also delivered two new products (48m Andiamo and the first MV19 Ridoc) and presented two new projects that will complete our renovated range: a restyling of the 43m Fast and the brand-new 70m yacht by Mulder Design,” said Baglietto’s CEO Michele Gavino.

“We are working with commitment and equally humbleness on our products, so as to ensure increasingly high quality, as well as a continued focus on research and development. In this way we are able to offer our clients a varied and versatile range.

“Once again, having the opportunity to build the yacht on speculation has allowed us to offer the owner faster delivery times.”

Besides this new 55m yacht, a 48m displacement craft (the twin sister of M/Y Andiamo and a 43m yacht in the Fast line) are currently under construction at the La Spezia shipyard.

Baglietto’s range also includes 38m, 43m, and 46m projects in its Fast Line; 41m, 44m, 50m, and 55m vessels in the more modern V-Line, while 2 projects – 43m and 62m – plus a brand new 70m one, will complete the traditional steel and aluminium T-line.
