At a gala launch ceremony in La Spezia on July 6th, Baglietto, revealed its new 180-foot (55-meter) motoryacht, Severin°s. After the flag-raising ceremony, Italian singer, performer and X Factor finalist, Aba Chiara, sang the Italian national anthem and Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, gave a welcome speech on behalf of the shipyard. The launch M/Y Severin°s followed the traditional baptism ritual of the sea, with the christening of the yacht and the Champagne bottle crashing on the bow.
The owner, his family and friends, the yacht crew and the owner’s representative from the Edmiston team were on hand along with many other illustrious guests, civil and military authorities, international media, CEOs and business executives, as well as the team who was part of the construction and their respective families.
During the launch, there were several other Baglietto yachts on view such as the S/Y Caroly, a sailing yacht from 1948 that is now the training ship of the Italian Navy; the M/Y Nina J, a vessel built in 2006 designed by Tommaso Spadolini; the M/Y Only One, built in 2015, and the latest launch in 2018 M/Y Silver Fox, which just arrived at the Mediterranean Sea from her Caribbean season; and the MV13, Baglietto’s famous powerboat tender.
On land, four new Baglietto superyachts under construction were on display. Also at the event did the Gavio family own other yachts: the Bertram 35-foot Moppy, the Baglietto Navy FFC 15, and the CCN motoryacht Vanadis, which was recently launched and is now ready to leave for a summer cruise.
“This was an historic and emotional day,” stated Michele Gavino, Baglietto CEO. “Not only did we welcome such a beautiful yacht, the biggest ever built by Baglietto in its recent history, but we also saw the history of the shipyard before our very eyes.”
“The unveiling of a new yacht is always an extraordinary moment in a shipyard’s life,” he added. “It is a special moment focused on the yacht; her owner, who I thank for the trust given to us; and all the people that made this dream a reality.”
SEVERIN°S hull is part of Baglietto’s traditional platform (the T-Line) designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design.
The vessel’s lines reflect Baglietto’s traditional Italian style with the lowered gunwales and side air vents. Francesco Paszkowski designed the interior in collaboration with Margherita Casprini.
The layout is set up for charter with a total of six cabins. The main deck has a master suite with a central bed, a secluded office, and a walk-in closet. Two guest cabins are located on the same deck as well. The central lobby hosts a panoramic elevator clad in marble, which connects the three decks. Aft of the main saloon is an elegant space enclosed by a glass window that can be completely opened.
On the lower deck, there are two additional guest cabins, with the crew area next to the galley. The crew’s quarters include a crew mess room and six crew cabins all with ensuite heads. The captain’s cabin is on the upper deck next to the modern wheelhouse, which has an integrated system provided by Telemar.
One more guest cabin is located on the upper deck, which has a multifunctional space furnished with a sofa and two Pullman beds. This area can easily become a playroom, or a massage room as required. The interior layout is complete with a living room, conversation area, and a gaming table. Outside, always on the upper deck, you can find a dining table for ten with a bar and relax area located aft.
There is a large sun deck, entirely devoted to gatherings and outdoor activities. Two pop-up tables can transform this space into a cozy dining spot. There is also a swimming pool and bar on this deck. The placement of the tender and toys in the foredeck allows more space to be dedicated to the Beach Club, which has double access. The Beach Club offers 55 square meters of space to relax with a steam shower, bar, and an additional area perfect for a gym and spa. The Beach Club faces the sea, ideal for those tranquil moments on the water.
The yacht is certified with the maximum class by Lloyd’s Register of Shipping and has received two Caterpillar engines 3516C DITA, which push her at a maximum speed of 17 knots and cruising speed of 12 knots.
