Baglietto and Francesco Paszkowski Design launch the Baglietto TF2 Hybrid Superyacht
Earlier this week, the Baglietto TF2 hybrid superyacht hit the waters at a private ceremony in La Spezia. The 171-foot (52-meter) superyacht is one of eight vessels from the yard and designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design.
“This is a very much awaited-for moment,” stated Baglietto CCO Fabio Ermetto. “Seeing one of our vessels touch the water is always incredibly exciting for us, but when this happens with the first one in a new line, the excitement is even greater.”
The Baglietto TF2 hybrid superyacht has a very effective hybrid propulsion system that lowers fuel consumption as well as carbon emissions. Francesco Paszkowski Design has taken elements of steel yachts and equipped the TF2 with two MTU 16V 2000 M86 engines, two electric motors, and a battery pack.
The yacht can go about 7,600 nautical miles in electrical diesel mode, and can also run on batteries alone for up to 10 hours when at anchor. She can claim a max speed of 17 knots and a range of 3,600 nautical miles in standard navigation mode.
Featuring a revamped stern, the TF2 includes an open beach club on three levels that connect the swim platform to the aft deck lounge. From there it connects to the main deck swimming pool with an elevated floor to accommodate even more passengers.
According to Baglietto, the 78-foot sundeck is unmatched on a ship this size, and floor-to-ceiling windows open on three sides to offer an all-weather dining and gathering space on the upper deck.
“Hull No. 10238 is also the first model in this line to mount a hybrid propulsion system, marking a crucial step also in terms of research and development in our shipyard’s path towards sustainable yachting,” Ermetto continued. “A path Baglietto is pursuing with firm determination.”
