Trieste has been the stage for the press preview of MCY 80, the sixth yacht from Monte Carlo Yachts collection. It will debut at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival.
The new 24-meter yacht enters in the middle of the range from the Italian-French brand and keeps the style elements of the whole Monte Carlo Yachts line up: a modern look with a hint of classic taste.
The designers Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard state: “With Monte Carlo Yachts we always aim at the top in terms of space and comfort, still keeping in mind that we’re designing a yacht and not a villa”.
Another distinctive element, common on every Monte Carlo yacht, is the fore area developed according to the so called Portuguese deck: two side accesses by the windshield merge in a center isle which leads to the bow lounge.
The flybridge features dinette, solarium and a wet bar, in addition chaise-longues and Jacuzzi are available.
Inside it’s all about luxury and light. The bleached and brushed oak flooring is the base for furnishing from Armani Casa, Hermès and Minotti, with leather and stone details. On the main deck a huge salon is located in the middle between a living area to stern and the dining room abow. Belowdecks there’s four cabins with en-suite, with the master stateroom taking the full beam towards aft, the VIP to the front, and the two, twin-bed guest ones amidships.
The new Monte Carlo Yachts debuts in the sixth year of activity for the manufacturer, which is part of Beneteau Group and has their plant in Monfalcone, northern Italy. Beside the new MCY 80, the range consists of MCY 65, MCY 70, MCY 76, MCY 86, and MCY 105. All the models have been designed by Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard, who were able with Monte Carlo Yachts range to bestow elements of innovation without distorting the classical design of traditional boats.
