Franchini Launches First 19.2 Metre Yacht MIA 6.3
by Miranda Blazeby
Italian builder Franchini has launched the first 19.2 metre MIA 63 yacht.
Designed by Massimo Franchini and built by the Franchini shipyard, the yacht is available in four different versions; Open, Bimini Top, T-Top and Hard Top.
Franchini previously said that he specifically focused on instilling “liveability, seaworthiness and manoeuvrability” onboard, which has resulted in “taut lines, diamond surfaces and a low and slender sheer line”.
Accommodation on board is for a maximum of six guests in three double ensuite cabins filling 55 square metres of living space.
The owner suite features a walk-in dressing room, beauty corner and sitting room while the VIP cabin forward has been furnished in the same style as the owner’s suite. The yacht also includes one crew cabin with a separate bathroom and deck access.
The interior styling, which has been handled by Marco Veglia, has been described as “modular and customisable”. Naval architecture meanwhile has been undertaken by Roberto Prevel.
Power comes from Volvo Penta IPS 950 engines for a proven cruising speed of 22 knots and cruising speed of 27.2 knots.
