Italian shipyard Baglietto has signed a contract for hull#1 of its new MV19 model. The new 19.5m yacht has been ordered for an European owner.

The MV19 model represents a natural evolution of the MV13 and was designed by Francesco Paskowski Design with Baglietto, both in terms of the exterior lines and the interiors. The Baglietto technical office is responsible for the hull, plant and propulsion package.

“It is a very exciting moment for Baglietto,” says managing director Michele Gavino. “The European boat show season has just come to an end with great satisfaction and the signature of this contract confirms the good time for Baglietto shipyard.”

The MV series draws its inspiration from the First and Second World War MAS paying tribute to the military craft that made the success history of the Liguria-based brand. The new designs reinterpret some of its peculiar features and shapes in a modern style matching them with architectural elements adapted from the open segment.

The layout of the first model presents the master cabin forward and two guests cabins with en-suite bathroom amidship.

In between is an open dinette with sofas and a galley. The owner has requested a third cabin for the captain with direct access from the exterior.

The steering position is exterior. Behind it there is a comfortable dinette with wet bar. Forward and aft there are two large sun pad areas with cushions.

The yacht, entirely built in aluminium, is set to reach a maximum speed of approximately 40kt thanks to twin MAN V12 1800hp engines.

Baglietto Spa specialises in the construction of new planing aluminium yachts from 35m-50m and steel and aluminium displacement yachts of 40m-plus.

The company’s activities also include ship repair and refitting services, as well as the construction of military craft.
