Baglietto Talent Program, 2023 Edition

Nautical Design

Course periodNov 20, 2023 – Feb 18, 2024
Nautical Design

The yachting world is one of the narrowest niches in the luxury market, as well as one of the most demanding and complex contexts a designer can deal with. In the yachting world, technical skills, creative or design qualities are relevant and fundamental. However, they are not the only significant elements. In fact, cultural background, knowledge of the art market and luxury trends, empathy and interpersonal relationship qualities also contribute to a yacht designer’s success. Nautical design imposes numerous challenges. For this reason, Baglietto launched the Talent Program in Nautical Design. The program consists of a sequence of workshops oriented to train new generations of nautical designers, who draw experience from Baglietto’s expertise and its network of professionals, in order to provide useful elements to enhance their professional career.

Design workshop

Francesco Paszkowski / Francesco Paszkowski Design

The design workshop is the crucial moment when students have the opportunity to apply the skills acquired in the other modules to a real project. The main objective is to design the interior of a yacht or houseboat, taking inspiration from Baglietto’s distinctive style and values. In this workshop, students will explore new creative horizons, seeking innovative solutions that integrate aesthetics and ergonomics. The goal is to create a unique environment that reflects the brand’s identity, combining luxury and functionality. Through this challenge, students will develop advanced financial planning skills in the context of naval design, achieving high-quality results.
