Baglietto launched MY Ridoc last week in La Spezia, Italy, for a European owner. She's a thoroughly modern, aluminum build with a look that pays homage to the past.

The yacht's design, created in conjunction with Francesco Paszkowski and Baglietto's in-house team, has lines influenced by Italy's WW1 and WWII torpedo boats. Baglietto's team managed the naval architecture, including designing Ridoc's deep-V hull form and choosing the yacht's MAN diesel setup. She's at once aggressive, yet refined. Ridoc has a metallic dark grey hull that adds to her tough appearance.

Her throwback lines is a clever counterpoint to her modern amenities and contemporary interior, including satellite TV, dark-oak sole, white-lacquered bulkheads and Canaletto nut upholstery. She also has foredeck sun pads and main-deck wet bar.

Accommodations include a master stateroom forward and two guest staterooms amidships. There’s a dinette between the master and guest spaces.

Powered with twin 1,800 hp MAN diesels, Baglietto reports Ridoc's top speed at 40 knots. Look for her world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival this fall.
