Italian shipyard Baglietto has announced the launch of its 42m/138ft luxury planing yacht RUSH from its facilities at La Spezia along the Italian Riviera.
The aluminium planing yacht is a return to the shipyard’s roots, celebrating speed, power and performance in a vessel which has a futuristic appearance penned by Francesco Paszkowski, who also created the interiors in collaboration with Margherita Casprini while Plana Design handled the naval architecture.
A transom door in the stern creates a large swim platform for lounging and sunbathing beside the water, while a side hatch behind allows for easy launch and retrieval of the water toys. The interiors feature a main salon with a dining area and a skylounge joined to the pilothouse on the upper deck, creating a second spacious social area with a cinema set-up. Alfresco dining and lounging options are placed on the upper deck aft, which also has sunbeds in addition to the foredeck.
Triple MTU 16V 2000 M96 L engines with two traditional shaft line external drives and a VOITH linear jet central drive grant a top speed of 28 knots
The accommodation is designed for up to 10 guests over 5 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 2 VIP staterooms, and 2 twin cabins.
The Master suite is situated on the main deck forward and boasts a walk-in wardrobe and spacious en-suite bathroom. The rest of the guest accommodation is on the lower deck, where the crew accommodation for 7 is placed in the bow.
Luxury yacht RUSH will make her public debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
