Monokini has been designed by Francesco Paszkowski , while intetiors are by Alberto Mancini. The engineering naval architecture study of the yacht – which can host 10 passengers in five different cabins on the lower deck and 8 crew members – is by Baglietto. Monokini is made of aluminium, with a length of 44 metres and a width of 8.30 metres. Two MTU 3600 hp engines allow a maximum speed of 30 knots and they are combined with four stabilizers.

I’m lucky to have a job I love. I believe it’s one of the most beautiful jobs in the world, made more satisfying by the trust I receive“.
