The well known Italian luxury yacht builder Baglietto Shipyard, based in La Spezia, and the renowned Italian superyacht designer Francesco Paszkowski have recently signed agreement for Baglietto’s new styling, which will be exhibited at this year’s Monaco Boat Show. Francesco Paszkowski will design the interiors as well as exteriors of Baglietto’s planing and displacement yachts.
The agreement envisages a close cooperation between the La Spezia shipyard and the designer, not only for the completion of the 3 crafts that Baglietto has taken over from the previous ownership (a 44m planing yacht, a 46m and a 53m displacement yacht whose exteriors were designed by Mr Paszkowski), but also for the design of three new projects: a line of 58m steel and aluminium vessels, a line of 37m aluminium planing yachts, and one of 46m aluminium planing crafts, whose design style will set the ‘family feeling’ of Baglietto yachts over the next few years. These three new projects will by no means break with tradition, but will, rather, epitomise its natural evolution.
“We are really happy about this agreement, which is meant to ensure continuity, but also represents the future of the Seagull brand – commented Baglietto’s CEO Diego Deprati -, and Francesco Paskowski is undoubtedly the designer that can best represent our shipyard’s philosophy. We want our Owners, who love and identify themselves with our brand, to “feel like at home” in a tradition which also means progress.”
Francesco Paszkowski, in turn, echoed Mr Deprati’s satisfaction: “I am delighted about Baglietto’s future plans. I am sure that the entrepreneurial spirit of the new ownership will allow the shipyard to express at best the brand’s strong potential and the values it embodies. Besides completing currently ongoing projects, we will offer the new Management our twenty-year experience with the shipyard and our firm’s innovative approach, so as to define new projects and make sure Baglietto will maintain its key role in the mega-yacht sector.
