Baglietto goes back to its origins by rediscovering and relaunching its iconic planing line. The 138ft/42m aluminum yacht RUSH, with exterior design by Francesco Paszkowski, and interior designed in cooperation with Margherita Casprini, was recently launched.
The DNA of Baglietto's latest creation is enshrined in the name the Owner chose for her: Rush a celebration of speed, high performance, and power. These are undoubtedly the core features of this 138ft/42m aluminum yacht: slender lines and a modern, aggressive look, further enhanced by the dark grey shade of the hull and the extensive use of glazed surfaces on several levels, the final effect being that of a very contemporary exterior style.
The compact Hard Top superstructure, low in height, makes a significant contribution to this yacht's stylish profile.
The high performance, brand-new hull, designed by Plana Design, can reach a maximum speed of 28 knots thanks to three MTU 16V 2000 M96 L engines with 2 traditional shaft line external drives and a VOITH linear jet central drive.
The shallow draft – of just under 7ft/ 2.1 m allows comfortable cruising in very shallow waters.
The stern, with the transom door opening downwards to create a swimming platform on the sea, has a lounge area furnished with sofas, while a side door makes launching and hauling the tender fast and easy.
Rush has impressive volume. Inside, the layout is a traditional one, with the full-beam master stateroom located forward on the main deck and fitted with a large ensuite bathroom and a spacious walk-in wardrobe. A conversation area welcomes guests as they board the yacht on this deck, where there is a dining area and the galley.
The lower deck, includes four guest cabins: 2 double VIP cabins and 2 twin cabins. On the same deck, at the bow, are the crew quarters, with the Captain's cabin, a dinette, and 3 cabins with bunk beds.
The wheelhouse is on the upper deck and is directly connected to the large sky lounge, where guests also have a cinema room. The dining table is outside. At the stern is the sunbathing area furnished with loungers and seats. Another sunbathing area is available at the bow, also on this deck.
Rush will be presented as a worldwide preview at the next Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
