“Andiamo” is an evolution of the 46 metre displacing model. This 48M hit the water in La Spezia during summer last to be presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival and at the Monaco Yacht Show after which the Mexican owner resumed the maiden voyage.
Following the project design work of the 46 metre yachts “Mr T” and “Only One” carried out by Studio Francesco Paszkowski which were in fact launched in 2014 and 2015 respectively, Studio Francesco Paszkowski also initialled the subsequent 48 metre model “Andiamo”. In the wake of the preceding two smaller models, “Andiamo” maintains the same stylistic elements which distinguish Baglietto’s latest generation as well as its tradition but with new layouts and diverse organization of spaces in the stern area which now sports a renewed look and beach club, a 140 square metre sundeck with infinity pool and waterfall, dining area with bar, barbecue and grill and last but not least a large sunbathing area in the bow section.
The interior layout too is completely different but is according to the owner’s sense of taste. Margherita Casprini once again contributed with a contemporary style sporting precious materials such as onyx and polished ebony. As for the interiors proper, the 342 square metres of available space have been divided in a classic way where guests’ night quarters have been situated along the lower deck They’re made up of two VIP suites, one double cabin and two twins while the owner’s quarters comprise a study, dressing room, a double bathroom for him/her situated in the bow area along the main deck. The dining and living areas are also situated along this same deck. Amidships there’s an awesome winding staircase lined with leather which connects the lower deck and main one to the bridge deck, where in addition to an ultra modern helm controls station equipped with Telemar integrated steering there’s also an entertainment room with two opening terraces built into the topsides from which to observe the surroundings and which doubles also as the ideal place to watch films. Great care and good taste has been devolved in furnishing the large exterior spaces.
In addition to the sundeck and the beach club area, visiting guests can spend leisurely hours in the lounge situated in the stern cockpit, can enjoy lunches away from indiscreet onlookers’ eyes out on the upper deck or lie on the sun beds provided in the bow section forward of the garage used to keep jet skis and a small tender, while a larger one situated aft of the engine room slots neatly into the hangar from one side.
“Andiamo” is built in steel and aluminium alloy. A pair of MTU 12V 4000 M63 engines propel this 48 metre to an estimated top speed of 16 knots, with a cruising range of 4,500 nm at 12 knots. The technical equipment package consists in Domotics by Videoworks, two 150 KW gen. sets and active stabiliser fins.
