New Model: Monte Carlo Yachts MCY 96

In a journey which started in 2010 with the MCY 76 Beneteau Group's Monte Carlo Yachts high end line up adds another chapter in its expanding story, the number seven and second largest to be exact and present the new MCY 96.  Launched as per tradition by the French-Italian boat builder in mid summer, the MCY 96 takes it to compete in the 28 to 29 meter over all and less to 24 meter length size raised pilot house category.  Designed as all the Monte Carlo Yachts line by Nuvolari Lenard the MCY 96 brings fresh thinking in its second largest model, this seen in the galley located below deck, in order to allow more space for the owners cabin on the forward part of the main deck.  The lower deck of the MCY 96 is offered in three versions; four guest cabins, or three cabins this last with the option of  a double second VIP suite or a twin cabin to starboard.  Power for the MCY 96 comes from standard Man 1900hp or optional MTU 2200hp engines, with maximum speeds up to 27 knots possible.
