Monte Carlo Yachts presented the seventh vessel of its feet at the Cannes Yachting Festival. During the past seven years, the Cannes Yachting Festival has been a great stage for the company to introduce new creations.
This year, the new MCY 96 made its appearance at Cannes, a symbol of Monte Carlo Yachts’ vision and strategy for the future, following on from the success of the multi award-winning MCY 105.
The MCY 96 was presented in July to an exclusive group of clients, journalists and stakeholders hailing from over 35 countries, during a private event at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, on the Island of San Giorgio in Venice.
The MCY 96 enters the MCY collection as the result of Monte Carlo Yachts’ significant and continued investments in the superyacht category.
At 30 meters, the MCY 96 is the second largest in the Monte Carlo Yacht collection. The MCY 96 has been designed and developed for extended ocean voyages.
“The new MCY 96 represents both continuity and evolution for the MCY collection and the company,” says Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts.
“The new MCY 96 is a remarkable vessel, designed and built to deliver pure ocean pleasure and extended voyage opportunities.”
Design and technical highlights include bulwarks that are sensibly higher than the current fashion, and the wide overhanging side deck that gives good coverage from natural elements.
This new yacht has been designed to utilise as much space as possible. The aft cockpit is very generous, comparable to those found on much larger yachts. The new MCY 96 makes the most of the layout concepts currently found on larger models in its class.
Extra space is created by positioning the master cabin forward on the main deck. There are four guest cabins, all equally sized, located on the lower deck. The lower deck cabins’ layouts also offer multiple versions.
The whole yacht features outstanding customisation possibilities with alternative versions already engineered, and others can be built at the owner’s request.
