Project: Monte Carlo Yachts MCY76

Monte Carlo Yachts MCY76 is the largest project to ever come from Beneteau Group to what concerns a motor boat. This new brand will focus in challenging the bigger boat market from Beneteau. While the capital for this venture is French, it is worth to note that all the management as is the premises of the yard will be Italian. The yard will be located in Monfalcone on the North East part of Italy just above Trieste, management trusted to Carla Demaria, design to Venetian firm Nuvolari Lenard, and Slovenian company Seaway taking care of engineering and naval architecture. The MCY76 is a bit different on the exterior looks, with its most distinct feature being the longer to today standard fore deck. From a certain point of view you can think it is one of the modern explorer yachts coming from Europe, but once you see the engines, MAN 1200 or 1400hp and estimated speeds of 31 knots max you can rest assured this is a planning motor yacht. The MCY76 will also have six version choices in flybridge, main and lower deck. You can go from a standard radar arch, to a T-top which is equipped with solar panels, three galley choices, and three or four cabins lower deck. Looking different to the competition is the fore peak with two C-shaped dinette to the sides converting to two sun pads, and an aft located dining table in the saloon. Construction is also very high tech what is a Vinilester resin, carbon fibre, Kevlar build with structural reinforcements being self supporting sandwich plating with longitudinal structures which have no floor plates.
