The Italian luxury shipbuilder Baglietto has revealed its new 55-meter motor yacht Severin°s, which hit the water for the first time at the La Spezia shipyard.

The owner and his family and friends, the yacht crew and the owner’s representative from Edmiston were present and witnessed the launch of hull 10225, which features an exterior design by Francesco Paszkowski Design.

Severin°s was showcased for the first time in the warm light of a golden sunset on the Gulf of Poet at the presence of many ultra-high net worth guests, civil and military authorities, international media, CEOs and business executives, as well as the team who was part of the construction and their respective families.

After the flag-raising ceremony, Italian singer, performer and X Factor finalist, Aba Chiara, sang the Italian national anthem and Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, gave a welcome speech on behalf of the shipyard.

The launch M/Y Severin°s followed the traditional baptism ritual of the sea, with the christening of the yacht and the Champaign bottle crash.

During the launch, guests also witnessed the most iconic superyachts that marked the history of Baglietto. They floated in the water as part of a historic rite of passage from the past to the future: the S/Y Caroly, a sailing yacht from 1948 which is now one of the most beautiful training ship of the Italian Navy; the M/Y Nina J, a historical vessel built in 2006 designed by world-renowned architect Tommaso Spadolini; the M/Y Only One, built in 2015 and brought to the shipyard for this special occasion; the latest launch in 2018 M/Y Silver Fox, which just arrived at the Mediterranean Sea from her Caribbean season; and the MV13, Baglietto’s famous powerboat tender.

Also at the event were the latest yachts of the other brands owned by the Gavio family: Bertram 35-feet Moppy vessel, the Baglietto Navy FFC 15, and the CCN motor yacht Vanadis which was recently launched and is now ready to leave for a summer cruise.

“This was a historic and emotional day,” stated Michele Gavino, Baglietto CEO. “Not only did we welcome such a beautiful yacht, the biggest ever built by Baglietto in its recent history, but we also saw the history of the shipyard before our very eyes.”

“The unveil of a new yacht is always an extraordinary moment in a shipyard’s life,” he added. “It is a special moment focused on the yacht; her owner, who I thank for the trust given to us; and all the people that made this dream a reality.”
