The Italian yacht builder Baglietto has announced the launch of the motor yacht Monokini, a 44m-long planing mega-yacht, the latest vessel born in Baglietto’s family. Monokini superyacht was launched during a private ceremony on Saturday May 4th; she was designed by Francesco Paszkowski with interior by Alberto Mancini.
“Monokini” yacht is the third hull in Baglietto’s FAST 44m line, which marks a true rebirth for the Seagull brand and was launched last Saturday. The ceremony, which was held privately as required by the Owner, was attended by the representatives of the Owner, by Baglietto’s employees, who were present with their families, the Company’s Suppliers, and the Top Management of Baglietto and the Gavio Group, which controls the La Spezia-based shipyard. Some local and regional authorities also took part in the event privately, so as to celebrate Baglietto’s recent comeback in business together with the Company and its staff.
“Today’s launch – commented CEO Diego Michele Deprati – is a milestone for our shipyard and makes us all extremely proud as it is a tangible sign of the rebirth of this glorious brand. This 44m yacht is really magnificent, the true embodiment of Made-in-Italy quality and style”.
Superyacht Monokini is the natural evolution of the 44 FAST line, whose first two models were Motor Yacht Tatiana per Sempre and her sistership Apache II superyacht. Featuring an aggressive silver hull, this yacht is characterised by streamlined, sleek outer lines reflecting the unmistakable style of designer Francesco Paszkowski Design, who keeps interpreting the Seagull’s philosophy at best. Her soft, stylish interiors have been created by designer Alberto Mancini, while Baglietto took care of naval architecture and engineering aspects.
44m-long, 8.30m-wide and featuring an aluminium hull and superstructure, this yacht can host 10 passengers in 5 cabins, all located on the lower deck, as well as 8 crew members. Thanks to 2 MTU 3600hp engines she can reach an impressive maximum speed of 30 knots in the utmost comfort, while the 4 at-anchor stabilisers grant flawless stability even when the yacht is far out at sea.
The interiors draw inspiration from the rational and yet sophisticated world of aviation. Wood, steel and leather – the materials used all over the yacht – combine harmoniously into a skilful blend of cream, beige and grey shades that create a stylish, refined atmosphere.
The wood used for the bulwarks – bleached sycamore – can also be found in all ceiling panels and, together with the ash & Wengé parquet and the dove-colour silk inserts, conveys a sense of calm and refinement. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing, similar to that found on large private jets, and is further enhanced by a skilful use of lighting, aimed at ‘softening’ the wood curves even more.
Almost all interior and outdoor furniture is custom-made: sofas, tables, lamps and handles have indeed been customised to fulfil the Owner’s wishes and requirements.
A distinguishing feature of the MONOKINI yacht are the two collapsible side balconies: two wonderful terraces allowing guests to enjoy incredibly relaxing moments just over the sea.
The yacht will be classified RINA and MCA for commercial purposes.
After the launch Monokini superyacht will remain at the shipyard until June for the completion of on-board fitting-out operations. She will then be on display at Cannes Boat Show and the Monaco Yacht Show later on this year.
