LUXURY SUPERYACHT BUILDER Baglietto revealed its newest and largest 55-metre (180-foot) motor yacht Severin°s at its shipyard in La Spezia, Italy. Known as hull number 10,225, Severin°s was showcased for the first time on the Gulf of Poets, amid an impressive entourage of spectators and other spectacular vessels that hold special meaning to the yard.

During the launch, the most iconic Baglietto superyachts floated in the water as a rite of passage from the past to the future: the S/Y Caroly from 1948 – now a beautiful training ship in the Italian Navy; the M/Y Nina J – a historical vessel built in 2006, designed by Tommaso Spadolini; the M/Y Only One built in 2015; M/Y Silver Fox launched in 2018, recently arrived to the Mediterranean Sea from the Caribbean; and the MV13, Baglietto’s famous powerboat tender. Also present were the latest yachts from other Gavino-owned brands and superyachts still undergoing construction, and the new McLaren GT.

After a flag-raising ceremony, Italian celebrity Aba Chiara performed the national anthem and Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, gave an impassioned welcome speech. Severin°s was then christened with the smashing of a champagne bottle.

Severin°s is part of T-Line, Baglietto’s traditional platform designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The vessel’s softly sleek lines reflect the yard’s traditional Italian style and, together with the lowered gunwales and side air vents, embody the brand’s distinct aesthetic features. Paszkowski designed the warm and cosy interior in collaboration with architect Margherita Casprini. Layout is perfect for charter with a total of six cabins, developed through the cooperation between client, shipyard and design company.

The main deck, dedicated to the family, has a spacious master suite with a central bed, a secluded office and a walk-in closet. Two cabins for family members are located on the same deck. The central lobby hosts a panoramic marble lift that connects the three decks. The main saloon aft at the entrance is an elegant space enclosed by a glass window that can be opened completely. The dining area has a central round table completing the main deck layout.

On the lower deck, there are two additional guest cabins, with the crew area next to the professional 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 a modern wheelhouse with an integrated Telemar system.

One more guest cabin, located on the upper deck, has a multifunctional space furnished with a sofa and two Pullman beds. This area can easily be transformed into a playroom or massage room. Outside on the upper deck are a dining table seating 10, a bar and relaxation area located aft.

The sun deck, a Baglietto trademark, is an impressive 150 square metres, and the stern offers a vast sunbathing area with free-standing sunbeds and a relaxation area in the shade of the roll bar. Two pop-up tables can transform this space into a cosy dining spot. There is also a swimming pool and bar on this deck.

Placement of a tender and toys in the foredeck affords more space for the 55-square-metre sea-facing beach club, which has double access and comes with a steam shower, bar, and space for a gym and spa.

The yacht is certified with the maximum class by Lloyd’s Register of Shipping and runs on two Caterpillar engines 3516C DITA, which push it at a maximum speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
