Northrop & Johnson Sells Two Baglietto Hulls in One Week

Posted April 12, 2022 in Brokerage & New Build by Janine St.Denis

Northrop & Johnson aided in the sale of two Baglietto hulls in only one week. These hulls were the sixth and seventh of the builder’s successful DOM 133 line. The hulls were sold by Northrop & Johnson Yacht Brokers Sean Doyle of the Fort Lauderdale office, who introduced the buyer of the hull #10249, and Charles Hervé of the Monaco office, who represented the buyer of hull #10252.

“We are all thrilled about these new orders,” says Fabio Ermetto, Baglietto CCO. “Baglietto is living a very happy sale season and we are proud to have closed four contracts in just three months. A special thanks goes to the Northrop & Johnson team for their active cooperation and hard work to finalize these two deals. It was great teamwork!”

Both hulls #10249 and #10252 will feature a highly customized layout, “marking once again – continues Ermetto– the strong attitude of the Baglietto shipyard as an “atelier” highly flexible and with a great propensity for a truly made-to-measure product, also favored by choice of aluminum as a privileged construction material.”

In particular, with hull #10252 Baglietto continues investing in technology and research of sustainable and eco-friendly solutions. Indeed, the new DOM 133 will be equipped with a hybrid propulsion system that combines traditional diesel engines, e-motors and batteries depending on operational needs to reduce consumption and environmental impact while increasing efficiency and onboard comfort, thanks to noise vibrations reduction, both at anchor and cruising. The range with diesel-electric mode can reach up to 690 nm and the yacht can stay up to 10 hours at anchor only on batteries. Nevertheless, the yacht can reach a considerable 17 knots max speed thanks to two CAT C32 engines.

DOM stands for Domus, meaning “home” in Latin – adds designer Stefano Vafiadis. Indeed, the idea of a “home away from home” lies at the core of this series of mid-size aluminum cruisers modeled around the functional and lifestyle needs of modern yacht owners. The line presents a distinctive family feeling by combining contemporary exterior lines inspired by automotive design with generous interior volumes and extensive open-air spaces.

“We are extremely proud to be part of two Baglietto hull sales in less than one week,” says Northrop & Johnson President & COO Daniel Ziriakus. “Baglietto is an exceptional brand that builds incredible yachts with Italian style and pedigree. We are proud to be aligned with a brand that emphasizes the same values as Northrop & Johnson, including sustainability as hull #10252 offers eco-friendly solutions that will help move the yachting industry to a more eco-conscious place — a cause near and dear to N&J. We thank our dedicated, expert brokers, Sean and Charles, for their diligence and hard work to bring these deals to fruition and look forward to many more successes with Baglietto.”
