Project: Monte Carlo MC5S

After a well received introduction to the first Monte Carlo 5 the past Dusseldorf boat show, the Beneteau Group was fast to capitalize on this success by extending the MC range with three further upcoming projects, one of which the entry level 4 model presented in Cannes.  The Monte Carlo MC5S, builds on an identical platform of the standard 5 model with it being a glazed sunroof opening hard top sport yacht, that means no flybridge up top and second helm. But the designers at Beneteau also felt the need to add something on top of the extended fiberglass part of the hard top and the MC5S features a C-shaped dinette up top which converts to a two person private sun-pad. Inside the the MC5S features the very well laid layout with its prime features being the astern galley, three double cabins, full beam amidships owners suite, and a crew cabin to aft.  Power is twin Volvo 435hp engines with IPS pod drives.
