41m Francesca II: Second Launch of 2023 for Baglietto
Italian shipyard Baglietto has announced its second launch of the year, the 41-metre custom superfast yacht, Francesca II.
Previously known as hull 10242, Francesca II is an all-aluminium build with a bespoke main deck and a number of VIP touches.
Her exterior and interior design was crafted by Francesco Paszkowski, with a collaboration between Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini. Naval architecture was completed in partnership with Bacigalupo.
Living spaces blend seamlessly together, creating a harmonious connection between each room via two sliding doors, one located aft and the other on the side provide access to the dining area and to the conversation area of the main saloon.
All cabins are located on the Lower Deck, with the Master Cabin situated amidships. The VIP cabin is forward while two guest cabins contain double, flexible sleeping arrangements.
Crew quarters and accommodation are nestled beside the engine room and directly accessible from the main deck. This space consists of the captain's cabin and two double cabins as well as galley and dining area.
“This is a unique yacht characterised by a very high level of customisation and impressive performance thanks to her triple engines and triple hydro jet propulsion system,” commented Baglietto's CCO Fabio Ermetto.
External spaces include an outdoor cockpit which features a relaxing lounge area, sunbathing area of the aft and a swimming platform providing you direct access to the water.
The conversation area boasts expansive seating placed at the front of the layout, allowing for complete discretion and privacy. A second pilot station can be found on the flybridge, adjacent to a tranquil alfresco area.
In terms of performance, she features a triple waterjet propulsion and a triple engine package. She can reach an impressive maximum speed of 33 knots and a cruising speed of 28 knots.
