Big-Game, Big Yacht

The Baglietto 43m was designed with the global angler in mind.

Baglietto says its new 43m Explorer is a "sportfishing" mega-yacht.

For the avid angler, who likes comfort when not chasing down dinner, there is room for a 28-foot sportfisherman and a 20-foot tender on the yacht’s upper deck’s after section.

Speaking of the upper deck (and comfort), there is about 645 square feet of real estate here dedicated to the master stateroom with a view forward through three rectangular windows. There’s also a studio, a dressing room and a his-and-her head.

This 140-foot explorer vessel will be built with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure. Design inspiration comes from a combination of other yachts, work boats and even warships.

The 43m Explorer can be tailored to an owner’s wants and needs, and most of the exterior is built modular, including an outdoor dining area on the upper deck that can be enclosed with sliding glass doors, allowing for an array of layout options.

There is an upper-deck helm with three forward-facing seats, and above this space is a sun deck with a furnished sunbed area, accessible via an external staircase.

The main deck has a full-beam salon with ceiling-high windows. Because the tender and sportfisherman reside on the after section of the upper deck, this version of the 43m Explorer replaces its main-deck garage with a shaded conversation space. That space is also connected to the swim platform for easy water access.

Belowdecks, there are four guest staterooms, each with en suite heads, and two cabins for crew. There is also a wine cellar on this deck, and owners can choose its size and capacity. The sportfishing version of this vessel also comes with a cold room for stowing your catch.

Powered with twin 1,450 hp Caterpillar C32 Acert diesels, the 43m Explorer should reach a reported top speed of 15 knots. The builder says the yacht has a 5,000 nautical-mile range at 11 knots and 5,500 nm at 10 knots on its 13,200-gallon fuel tank.
