Italian firm Santa Maria Magnolfi designed a new 141-foot (43- meter) Baglietto Explorer that offers comfort and safety in all sea conditions. The yacht is designed to be used in any possible climate, building on the stylistic heritage of workboats and warships as well as the world of yachting.
The upper deck is designed to be an owner’s deck. Depending on the desire of the owners, access to the entrance salon may either be open to everyone or have limited access to create total privacy for them. The large master suite has windows on three sides offering an impressive open view forward. On the aft deck, there is a dining area for 12 people; also there is the possibility to store a 28-foot sportfisherman and a 20-foot rescue tender. This area is extremely versatile, as it can be fitted out to host large parties or, conversely, be furnished with very simple, functional furniture when the tenders are in the water. A panoramic area with sofa and table is located placed in the bow area.
On the main deck, the large full-beam salon has ceiling-high windows on the bulwarks. With the tenders on the upper deck, the aft main deck has free space for lounging in the shade or sun. There is also a winter garden, with glass enclosure that is air- conditioned and works as a filter between the salon and the aft area. Being in a low, barycentric position, the winter garden can also be used as a salon when cruising in bad weather conditions or as a TV room.
The lower deck has four guest staterooms. Also on this level is a wine cellar that is temperature and humidity controlled and a cold room fully dedicated to the fish storage for the sportfishing enthusiast.
The overall interior design features large glazed surfaces letting in plenty of natural light and ensuring a constant interaction with the outside environment and landscape. Vertical elements with metal finishes convey a sense of safety and sturdiness, alternating with the natural materials. Italian marbles and exotic woods are combined with ancient Moroccan straw mats and Indian silk fabrics; the large display cabinets and the wide shelves have been specifically designed to showcase precious objects gathered from seas across the globe.
The exteriors are modular and can therefore be adapted to different needs: the outdoor dining area on the upper deck can be closed on the sides by means of sliding glazed doors.
An external staircase allows to reach the sundeck, which is an observation area, furnished with a sunbed area but featuring a much more minimal style, with teak having been replaced by polished flooring, typical of ice breakers and workboats. The bridge on this deck has been designed using tubular elements drawing inspiration from the military world. The pilothouse is also an observation point from which the owner and his guests can sit and enjoy and perhaps catch sight of whales.
The layout of the yacht features practical and dedicated routes and staircases for the guests and the crew across all decks. The crew can use three direct exits, one on a bulwark on the main deck, one forward in the anchor area, and one on the navigation bridge. On the latter, the spacious deckhouse with indoor wings and a walk-around console is ideal for long-range cruises.
