New Model: Monte Carlo 52

Beneteau present the new Monte Carlo 52, what should be a replacement model for the MC5 series.  The new Monte Carlo 52 is again a design from Nuvolari Lenard, the Italian duo who are responsible for all Monte Carlo Yachts and new Beneteau Flyer series.  The Monte Carlo 52 unlike previous MC series returns back to basics and is a traditional motor yacht from fore to aft aimed at making the best  use of spaces both outside and inside.  The interior layout will come from long time Beneteau collaborator Andreani who presents a main deck with astern galley, sofa with lounge and or dinette use, chaise lounge to port and helm station to port side.  The lower deck will offer a full beam midships master suite, guest cabin to starboard, VIP suite forward, and an aft crew cabin.  Worth to note are the huge spaces on the flybridge of the Monte Carlo 52 which should make one of the most spacious in the sixteen meter size category.  The Monte Carlo 52 will be powered by twin Volvo 435hp engines and an option for the new 480hp units.  These engines allow for a top speed up to 27 knots and a cruise of 22 knots which gives a range of only 180 nautical miles.  Discreet numbers to what is a well thought out cruising motor yacht.
