First tank tests for the new 54m Baglietto hull #10231 carried out at the Insean-CNR, the Italian ship model basin in Rome.
Towing tests and self-propulsion tests were carried out this week at the Italian model basin in Rome to assure the best dynamic and hydrodynamic hull performances at sea.
Riccardo Quasso, Baglietto’s Head of Technical Department said “We strongly believe in this brand new project and want to be sure to gain the best performances in all sea and weather conditions. We want to reduce all possible flaws by collecting as more precise data as possible. The tank tasting will give us all the elements to provide a perfect hull, highly performant and with great maneuverability characteristics”.
The displacement hull #10231 is based on a brand new naval platform expressly tailored for this project. The vessel in all aluminum will have a 10.40 m beam and 2.60 m draft with a transatlantic range of 4,500 miles at cruising speed of 12 knot and she will be in the highest class of Lloyd’s Register of Shipping.
The yacht is intended for delivery to her American Owner in 2020.
Baglietto has just delivered MY Andiamo, 48m and MY Ridoc, 19m. In addition to this new 54m yacht, the shipyard is currently building 3 new motor yachts: a displacement 55m T-Line in steel and aluminum, a 43m Fast Line and a 48m T-Line sistership of MY Andiamo. Furthermore the Baglietto range includes a 38m Fast yacht; a 41m, a 44m, a 50m and a 55m part of the more contemporary V-Line while a 43m and a 62m projects complete the traditional line (T-Line) in steel and aluminum.
