Baglietto has presented two new lines to be added to their portfolio, to be penned by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The new FAST50 will be their new flagship yacht at 164’ (50m), while the XO line will be a new explorer yacht with the first project to be the X50, also measuring 164’ (50m).
Baglietto’s CEO, Diego Michele Deprati, shares, “These new lines are the highest expression of Baglietto’s core mission: innovating while also preserving tradition. Both projects are extremely innovative and set up Baglietto for even more success. Indeed, each and every one of our products looks ahead at the future, often anticipating it, without ever losing sight of its DNA.”
Debuting a new top of the line model for Baglietto’s FAST series by Francesco Paszkowski Design, she’ll be able to offer owners a larger model, while adhering to the team’s goal of offering highly personalized aluminum fast superyachts. While maintaining designs traditional to the Baglietto name, the FAST50 features a unique spin on the stern, “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 lounges that offer an exclusive, breathtaking view. A transformer replaces the traditional passerelle, flawlessly preserving the yacht’s elegant line.”
High windows envelop the yacht, offering views across all three sides of the yacht, with lower gunwales to limit any obstructions and further connect the inside with the outside. The FAST50 is the first FAST model to be spread across three decks, with a wide beam master cabin. An additional two VIP and two twin cabins are available on the lower deck, with spacious crew cabins. Generous outdoor space is provided at every turn, with ample sun loungers and Jacuzzi on the bow to take in the views while having a soak.
Baglietto’s Sales Manager Fabio Ermetto comments, “The FAST50 line is reintroducing Baglietto to the segment of high-performing yachts. Top performances have always been part of our DNA, and the new top-of-the-range model reinterprets distinctive elements of our tradition to effectively respond to the current market demand. This means meeting the needs of clients who love top performances but do not want to renounce the comfort and luxury of a superyacht.”
The first FAST50 is currently under construction with delivery scheduled for 2026.
Baglietto’s foray into the explorer yacht territory will be through their new XO line.
The XO name comes from the notion to “Explore, Experience, Observe” (XO) therefore allowing owners to get the full explorer yacht experience.
With the ability to make long-range crossings, the XO will come equipped with an observation point located above the wheelhouse to allow those onboard the ability to see all of the wonders up close to be experienced when traveling off the beaten path. Large windows provide a 360° view, with a central skylight to add to the panoramic views and offers a touch of romance. The room is outfitted with comfortable sofas to relax and take in the views, no matter the weather.
XO draws inspiration from the train, ETR 300 ‘Settebello,’ that revolutionised the train in the 1950s.
The XO will keep the pilot bridge on the upper deck, with the area above reserved for guests’ enjoyment. Even with these adjustments, the XO preserves the classic stylistic features Baglietto and Paszkowski Design are known for without compromising on the trans-oceanic capabilities.
The XO will utilize eco-friendly ceramic materials, including solar panels on the roof of the flybridge while special paints and solutions have been used that will help to lower the overall environmental impact of the yacht. There is some space for customization as well with a range of configurations available for owners to choose from and a maximum speed of 16 knots.
Ermetto shares, “World-class cruising, reliability, and performance in the widest sense of the word have always been universally acknowledged strengths of our brand and this specific model, conceived to travel even the roughest seas, is the epitome of them all.”
