This reinforces our mission to always improve, with constant attention and commitment to the highest standards in quality, while maintaining the Made-In-Italy craftsmanship and innovation that have always been part of the Baglietto tradition”.

The yacht’s streamlined, sleek lines have been designed by Francesco Paskowski Design, while the soft, flexuous interior are the signature of designer Alberto Mancini, who has given life to an elegant, sophisticated style. The naval architecture is by Baglietto. At 44m long in all aluminium, Monokini can host 10 guests in 5 cabins on the lower deck and 8 crew members.

The interiors are subdued and very refined, but also feature a series of details that draw inspiration from the rational and yet sophisticated world of aviation design. Wood, steel and leather – the materials used all over the yacht – have been combined harmoniously to obtain a skilful blend of shades of colour that result in a stylish, refined atmosphere.

The wood used for the bulkheads – bleached sycamore – can also be found in all ceiling panels and, together with the treated Wengé parquet and the dove-colour silk inserts, conveys a sense of calm and refinement.

Interior and outdoor furniture also deserve special mention: nearly all sofas, tables, lamps and handles have been entirely customised to fulfill the very precise wishes and requirements of the owner.

Powered by 2 MTU 3700hp engines, this new 44m vessel will reach an impressive maximum speed of 30 knots in utmost comfort, while the 4 zero speed stabilisers will grant flawless stability even when the yacht is far out at sea.
