Silver Fox by Baglietto

Yacht builders can stay true to tradition while still incorporating contemporary flair, as Baglietto proves with its latest T Line delivery, Silver Fox.

When Baglietto inaugurated its T Line series, it did so to pay homage to its past. It wanted to keep a thematic tie to the planing-hull yachts that captivated global customers’ attention decades ago. Simultaneously, the builder wished to push itself to maximize usable space, plus deliver the comforts modern buyers demand. Given the success of its first T Line, Andiamo, from 2017, Baglietto started a sistership on spec. The gamble paid off, with the 156-footer selling the first day of her global premiere at last September’s Cannes Yachting Festival. Now christened Silver Fox, the yacht shows how the past and present can coexist and complement one another.

Francesco Paszkowski Design brings together classic and contemporary appeal in the yacht’s styling. The smooth, flowing lines and sharp bow are similar to Baglietto’s prior planing yachts. Meanwhile, the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows keep with modern trends.

Look closely at the sundeck, and you’ll spy a popular superyacht trend. Silver Fox has a pool with a glass wall, for an infinity pool effect. The pool is just one highlight of more than 1,500 square feet of relaxation space up here.

Among the reasons why the buyer fell in love: a soft, still-sophisticated decor in line with his tastes. Baglietto’s interiors department and Boutsen Design used Italian walnut paneling, plus Canaletto walnut soles (covered here with an area rug). Note the bar at the aft-deck entry, too, perfect for welcoming guests.

The full-beam (31-foot) master suite on the main deck shows off some of the modern design flair, notably irregular shapes. Similar patterns appear below decks in the four guest staterooms. But, they don’t have the cozy armchairs and coffee table that the master does.

No modern yacht is complete without a beach club. Silver Fox’s beach club suited the owner’s desire to relax in the Caribbean this winter. He didn’t make a single modification to the lounging area, complete with bar, or the spa-like steam shower (not visible). In fact, he didn’t change any spaces.

With 3,767 square feet of luxury areas inside and outside, Silver Fox offers an abundance of places to relax. Also abundant, the areas where she can poke into secluded coves. The yacht has a reported range of 4,500 nautical miles at a 12-knot cruise, under Caterpillar power.

From her pointed bow to the seagull Baglietto emblem along her side deck, Silver Fox is instantly recognizable among brand aficionados. What’s more, Silver Fox is helping educate newcomers to what Baglietto is about. It started with her stateside premiere at the recent Miami Yacht Show, which was a first for the brand as well. Michele Gavino, Baglietto’s CEO, says, “The Americas represent one of the most dynamic and responsive yachting hubs of the world.” In combination with Baglietto’s two-year-old Fort Lauderdale office, Gavino adds, the yard’s team expects “to gain the favors of the public overseas,” especially in this “strategical area for our brand.”
