At the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the Italian yard Baglietto unveiled a 38m superyacht concept which was developed with the skills of Hot Lab. The brief for this innovative V-Line 38 was for the vessel to be traditional along with creative new ideas. These concepts can be seen with the hardtop’s geometrical fin and vertical prow, giving more interior volume to the yacht.
The CEO of Baglietto, Michele Gavino, said great strides in project development and research defined different platforms as well as contemporary design. This would ensure great comfort and an excellent performance. Hot Lab and Baglietto worked extremely well together with suggestions that the design of this latest V-Line superyacht could have tri-decks or raised pilot houses. Other optional extras included a fold-out terrace which could be built into the starboard side of the master cabin on the main deck.
Upstairs on the new superyacht, a sun deck is divided into different zones. There are sun pads, an al fresco dining area for ten guests and conversation areas. A huge range of toys and tenders can be launched from the aft garage which is accessible from a transformer swimming platform.
Hot Lab representative Antonio Romano has said the design limitations from the yard were modest. However, the result is modern with appealing lines on a superyacht that is stylish and interprets the personality of Baglietto.
This new V-Line design completes the collection that started at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2016. It now comprises 421, 44 and 50m concepts from Hot Lab as well as Santa Maria Magnolfi.
