WORK IN PROGRESS | FRANCHINI MIA 6.3
By Mary Hegarty and Désirée Sormani
After a five-year hiatus, Cantiere Navale Franchini has returned to the market with a new project, Mia 6.3, a beautifully designed 19-metre motoryacht. The aim is to repeat the success of the Emozione 55 (2004), an elegant Mediterranean lobster boat of which 35 sold and which is still making very high prices on the pre-owned market. Personalisation will be a huge focus with this new craft. The basic platform is quite compact but the owner has a choice of four different configurations, various interior layouts and whatever décor fits the bill. Mia is an innovation and technology-packed range clothed in the harmonious forms that belie the yard’s roots. The first example is all taut lines, generous volumes for exceptional interior liveability and a certain sleekness. We are talking versatile runabouts with lots of al fresco space and a choice of four versions (Open, Bimini-Top, T-Top e Hard-Top) and ranging in size from 33 to 77 ft. Needless to say, the choice of interior layouts is exceptional. Designed by architect Marco Veglia, they offer two, three or four cabins which can be arranged in various configurations, depending on your preferences.
