Suppose you're one of the lucky folks vacationing on the Mediterranean this summer. In that case, you might spot a beautiful superyacht sporting a distinctive shade of blue. Even among the multitude of luxury pleasure craft cruising in this area, Severin's is instantly recognizable due to its peaceful colors, in perfect harmony with its lavish interiors.
Severin's is neither too big nor too small; it doesn't break the norm with a futuristic silhouette and doesn't claim to revolutionize boating technology. Even so, it's a truly memorable yacht and one of the most successful launched in recent years. Cool and calm like its simple name, this discrete boat doesn't grab attention in the typical flamboyant manner of Italian superyachts. Still, the subdued elegance of the exterior makes way for lavish amenities resembling those of a five-star resort.

The launch of this beautiful 180-footer (55 meters) marked an important milestone for Baglietto. The Italian shipyard officially unveiled hull number 10225, part of the acclaimed 55 T-Line displacement series. Michele Gavino, the CEO, called it a "historic" day. Severin's, the largest superyacht ever built by Baglietto, was the crown jewel celebrating more than a century of boat building.

Severin's was a bespoke pleasure craft, and its name hinted at who the lucky owner was. German millionaire Kurt Zech owns one of the top real estate development groups and is linked to a high-end hospitality brand known as Severin's Hotels.

Interestingly enough, a couple of years after taking delivery of his gorgeous superyacht, Zech also got involved in the yachting industry. In 2022, after filing for bankruptcy, the reputable Lloyd Werft shipyard was sold to Zech and Thorsten Ronner (a steelwork contractor). The German shipyard is mainly known for the 2010 refit of Luna and the 2021 launch of the 140-meter (459 feet) Solaris.

Like all the models in the T-Line series, Severin’s was designed by one of the leading names in superyacht design: Francesco Paszkowski. Together with architect Margarita Casprini, the Italian designer brought to life a somewhat austere yet exquisitely distinctive vessel. Opulence was not reflected through extravagant style accents but rather through a high comfort level.

A spacious three-decker, Severin’s combines a remarkable six-stateroom layout with oversized exterior areas for entertainment and socializing. A beautifully-crafted central lobby houses a modern marble lift that connects all the decks.

The heart of the yacht is a sophisticated salon on the main deck. Boasting high-quality teak floors, a generous round-shaped dining table that can seat all the onboard guests, and a separate bar area, the main salon also connects to the outdoors. Depending on the weather and time of the day, it can stay fully enclosed or open up to the surroundings.

The main deck is also where you'll find the master suite. As you can imagine, this cabin offers huge space, enough to include a private office and a walk-in closet, in addition to an elegant en-suite bathroom. The stateroom layout includes two VIP cabins on the lower deck, two double cabins, and an additional cabin with a flexible configuration.

This room can be converted into a massage room, a games room, or even a playroom. Severin’s was designed as a charter yacht right from the start, which is why every feature was carefully added with future charter guests in mind. Those who want to spend time onboard with their young children could use a dedicated playroom. If, on the other hand, we’re talking about a large group of friends, they might prefer to enjoy extra spa amenities.

No matter who gets onboard Severin’s, they'll surely spend most of the time on the sundeck. It feels like an enormous terrace, unfolding over 160 square meters (more than 1,700 square feet). If the gorgeous glass-fronted swimming pool wasn't enough, the sundeck also houses a jacuzzi. The dedicated sunbathing area seems endless, while a well-equipped bar keeps everyone refreshed.

The Baglietto yacht's structure is unique in matching the huge sundeck with an equally impressive beach club. This also feels like a lavish terrace, except it's closer to the water level. It includes a second bar, a modern gym, and a steam shower. Those looking for more adrenaline can hit the waves on a Sea-Doo, paddleboard, or any of the inflatable toys available.

Whenever the yacht's millionaire owner isn't onboard, it's ready to welcome up to 12 guests, with a large 13-people crew contributing to a luxurious experience. Severin’s typically cruises in places like Croatia, Greece, and the Italian Riviera, with its twin Caterpillar engines keeping a comfortable 14-knot (16 mph/26 kph) speed.

The steep weekly rate is the only bad news about this white-and-blue floating resort. It costs nearly $400,000 (€360,000) to spend a week onboard Severin's in high season. Still, it makes sense, considering that superyachts come with huge operating and maintenance costs. This bespoke Italian pleasure craft reportedly needs $3 million per year just for running costs. Once onboard, however, everything is set up to make you forget about numbers and just enjoy.
