The Franchini MIA 63 superyacht designed by Massimo Franchini and built by Franchini Shipyard, has attracted interest and curiosity since her official launch.
The superyacht is available in four different versions; Open, Bimini Top, T-Top and Hard Top.
She was christened with the ritual bottle of champagne by Mia Franchini, daughter of Massimo and the muse of this innovative project.
Designer Massimo Franchini was full of praise at the launch, describing the construction of the MIA 63 as “beyond the borders, beyond the horizon of the 21st century.”
This project is full of avant-garde design and features taut lines, diamond surfaces, and a distinctive bow retractable anchor under the hood.
Perfectly balanced on its waterline, MIA 65’s two 745 horsepower Volvo IPS 950 engines are controlled by the practical joy stick.
In her inaugural test, she started to plane at 15 knots, and in 19 seconds she reached a speed of 27.2 knots at 2,350 rpm, burning 90 litres per engine. At a comfortable cruising speed of 22 knots @at 2,000 rpm, consumption drops to 69 litres per engine.
The MIA 65 was designed for comfortable long-range cruising, and has an exceptionally stable hull, designed by Roberto Prever’s Naos studio. the hull design allows for a smooth ride even when entering planning, with no pitch.
The interior styling by Marco Veglia has been described as “modular and customisable”.
On board there room for a maximum of six guests in three double ensuite cabins filling 55-square-metres of space. The owner suite features a walk-in dressing room, and sitting room while the VIP cabin has been furnished in the same style as the owner’s suite.
