Franchini reveals 19.2 metre model MIA 6.3
by Miranda Blazeby
Italian builder Franchini has revealed new renderings and details about its new model, the MIA 6.3.
The 19.2 metre model, which is set to debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, is available in four different versions; Open, Bimini Top, T-Top and Hard Top.
Builder founder Massimo Franchini said he solidified the concept last year following a hiatus at the business.
He has 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 will come from Volvo Penta IPS 950 engines for a top speed of 34 knots.
