New Model: Beneteau 47 Monte Carlo Fly

Beneteau introduces the new Fly version of the 47 Monte Carlo, launched in hard top version at the end of 2008. The 47 Monte Carlo Fly is now the current flagship of Beneteau's modern cruiser range and is identical to the hardtop version in all things, but adds an extended flybridge with a second helm station, and entertainment area up top. While cost cutting and tight competition may have made some builders to use the same hull and modules to offer different boats as is the case with the 47 Monte Carlo, the French builder and Italian designer Andreani came out with a nice flybridge proposition making for a good looking Motor Cruiser. Connection to the flybridge of the 47 is from an integrated stair case in the aft deck, which brings to the upper deck featuring a C-shaped settee aft, sun pad to starboard, and a dual seated helm station to port. Below the winning concepts of the 47 Monte Carlo are kept with options for a two or three cabin version. The third double cabin option replaces the lower decked L-shaped saloon settee. Power is from twin Volvo IPS600 435hp engines.
