Featuring a decisively intriguing name, Andiamo is Baglietto‘s latest megayacht launched a few days ago with a technical launch before the official delivery to her owner. With an overall length of 48 metres, the yacht is within 500 GRT, with all bureaucratic benefits that it brings.
With a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, this displacement yacht has been designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The Florentine design studio took care of both her exterior and interior lines, the latter in cooperation with architect Margherita Casprini.
Design impact is perfectly consistent with what one might expect from a brand like Baglietto, which doesn’t mean classic lines but an expression of state-of-the-art yacht design. Exterior lines represent an evolution of the previous 46-metre model where the helm station has been moved forward and visibility has been optimised over the whole deck and along the fore bulwarks thanks to the revered windshield situated before the upper deck. The aft zone, too, has been renovated with the now inevitable beach club.
Drawing inspiration from the traditional stylish features of Baglietto yachts, living volumes and usable surfaces are generous and abundant on this new model. Andiamo offers her owner and guests a 340-square-metre living space. Another important feature is given by the spacious external areas, especially on the sun deck which offers 140 sqm designed as a large open-air club shadowed by a rigid top and equipped with a dining area served by wet bar and barbecue, a large sun pad forward and an infinity pool with falls.
The upper deck, too, is fully devoted to conviviality and it is equipped with an aft dining area, a centrally-located cinema room and two nice terraces open on both sides.
If Andiamo is a contemporary yacht in terms of exterior design, interiors, too, are equally contemporary and captivating. More specifically, her Mexican owner has asked for a modern style embellished by luxury refined materials like onyx and lacquered ebony. The “core” of the layout is a spiral staircase, completely covered with leather, which links the three decks. However, the efficient classic layout hasn’t been changed. The lower deck therefore houses sleeping quarters which include five guest cabins. Owner’s private apartments are, on the contrary, located aft on the main deck and include a dressing room and two separate bathrooms (his and hers).
The other areas devoted to conviviality, like the main saloon, the conversation room and the dining area, are all located on this deck and they are accessible from the cockpit through a large sliding door which, in it turn, links the environment sheltered by the superstructure and open-air spaces.
The engine room accommodates two MTU 12V 4000 M63 engines which allow a top speed of 16 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 12 knots. Performances/fuel-efficiency ratio is extraordinary. Andiamo will soon been leaving the shipyard for a summer cruise in the Mediterranean to be then on display at the next Cannes and Monaco boat shows.
