Baglietto sells first military-inspired MV19 day boat
by Chris Jefferies
The Baglietto MV range of high-performance day boats will be expanding after the Italian yard sold the first hull in its new MV19 series in an in-house deal.
The 19.5 metre all-aluminium cruiser was designed in a collaboration between Baglietto and Francesco Paskowski Design, with inspiration coming from the First and Second World War MAS military vessels.
Michele Gavino, managing director of Baglietto, said: “The MV line comes from our roots, from our past which will always be a model of the best yachting practice and from which we are inspired today.”
This sporty open day boat’s purposeful design includes symmetrical air intakes along the freeboard and a flush-fitting teak deck that runs parallel to the sheerline.
On deck relaxation areas include forward and aft sunpads, as well as a comfortable dinette with a wet bar located aft of the exterior helm station.
The interiors of the Baglietto MV19 were styled in cooperation with Margherita Casprini with a focus on creating a retro allure. Key features below decks include a spacious open dinette, comfortable sofas and a fully kitted-out galley.
The first hull in the series will feature a master cabin in the bows, two guest cabins and an amidships en suite, as well as a third guest cabin with separate exterior access.
In keeping with Baglietto’s reputation for high-performance, power comes from a pair of 1,800hp MAN V12 engines for a top speed of 40 knots, meaning that the MV19 can hold its own among the world’s fastest superyacht tenders.
