The 52m TLine yacht No. 10238 is a displacement hull that remains under 500GT and features important stylistic innovations in the stern and bow areas, while remaining in the Baglietto tradition
The new generation of TLine yachts designed by the La Spezia shipyard, are signed Francesco Paszkowski Design. The laying ceremony took place in the presence of the owner via streaming and all the shipyard’s workers, in compliance with Covid-19 prevention regulations.
Completely redesigned, the stern of hull no. 10238 presents itself open with a beach club arranged on 3 levels. The large swimming pool has the peculiarity of a “retractable” closure, thanks to the up/down moving flooring system. A set of full-height windows on the lounges contribute to maintaining contact with the sea also inside. The sky lounge on the upper deck, which can be opened on 3 sides thanks to the fully retractable windows, is particularly noteworthy.
At bow, a retractable staircase directly connects the sun deck with the upper deck, which becomes its natural expansion. The yacht will be equipped with a standard hybrid propulsion system that will allow the choice of a more efficient navigation mode in order to reduce consumption and environmental impact. With the diesel-electric mode, the autonomy reaches up to 7.600 nm with the possibility of mooring at anchor up to 10h with the support of batteries only.
The two MTU 16V2000M86 engines, however, will allow the boat to reach a considerable maximum speed of 17 knots and autonomy of 3,600 nm in the traditional mode.
There are 9 vessels currently under construction in the La Spezia and Carrara plants: in addition to hull no. 10238, hulls no. 10233 of 48m and 10235 of 38m are under construction in La Spezia, as well as hulls no. 10231 of 54m, the M/Y Panam and the M/Y Run Away soon to be delivered. At the Carrara yard, on the other hand, hulls no. 10236 of 42m and the first model of DOM133 continue on specn. The construction of hull no. 10237, twin of the 52m TLine whose delivery is scheduled for 2023, has also started in speculation.
