After the launch of MY Andiamo, a 48m steel and aluminium yacht, Italian shipyard Baglietto has launched the first MV19 model 19.5m Ridoc on June 10 in the attendance of the European owner, his friends and the Baglietto team. After the summer cruising, Ridoc will have her world preview at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival (September 12-17).

The project represents an evolution of the MV13 and was designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design with the shipyard, both in terms of the exterior lines and the interiors. The Baglietto technical office is responsible for the hull, plant and propulsion designs. 

The MV series draws its inspiration from the First and Second World War MAS yachts, paying tribute to the military crafts by reinterpreting some of the features and shapes in a modern style and matching them with architectural elements adapted from the open segment. The yachts also feature the symmetrical air intakes along the hull freeboard as well as the metallic dark grey hull.

In cooperation with architect Margherita Casprini, the interior design boasts the updated audio-visual systems with satellite TV. The upholstery is in Canaletto nut together with white lacquered walls while all the floors are in dark oak. 

Ridoc has the master cabin forward and two guests cabins with en-suite bathroom amidship. In between is a spacious open dinette with sofas and a well-equipped galley. Catering to the owner’s requirement, a third cabin for the Captain with direct access from the exterior has been included.

Fitted with twin MAN V12 1800hp engines, the yacht can reach a top speed of approximately 40 knots.
