The new Monte Carlo Yachts’ MCY 96


MCY 96 Monte Carlo Yachts' new modelThe new Monte Carlo Yachts’ MCY 96, after being launched in a private event in Venice in July, had her public debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the first show of the season. The MCY 96, showcased beside its larger sibling, the MCY 105, was also exhibited in Genoa and will attend the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.

Carla Demaria, Monte Carlo Yachts’s President, commented: “The new MCY 96 is in terms of continuity and evolution of significant importance to us. MCY 105’s considerable success has led us in the development of the MCY 96. I am sure this new model will goad market standards towards new goals and will represent further growth for Monte Carlo Yachts in the coming season”.
Managing Director Fabrizio Iarrera, added: “The first three units have already been sold, which makes us stand proud and positive as to the kind of response this new model will have following the official presentation”.

The new MCY 96 draws her inspiration from the previous and larger models such as the MCY 105. Designed by the world-renowned duo Nuvolari Lenard Design studio, the yacht features the “Future Classic” looks which inspire the entire Monte Carlo Yachts collection.
Compared to her sister vessels, the new MCY 96 features a serrated edge to the profile by including high, protected bulwarks for offshore running. These bulwarks dip down at the front of the yacht to give the owners in the master suite a full view of the water. But as the profile moves aft, an overhang on the side deck dips down, providing protection from the elements while the yacht is running.

Monte Carlo Yachts, thanks to its modular approach to yacht building, ensures maximised interior volume and minimal weight without compromising structural integrity.
The main deck seems indeed larger than in other yachts in its class. The open saloon conveys a feeling of wide open spaciousness, thanks to floor-to-ceiling side windows that slide open and a large entrance at the rear connected to the cockpit.
Lounges are positioned at the back of the saloon, while a dining table for eight is located forward near the opening side panels. The cockpit also has a large alfresco dining table seating up to 10 guests.
The designers created an open-playground flybridge, incorporating a carbon-fiber hardtop with large opening panel, Jacuzzi, facing lounges, and yet another outside dining table. On the foredeck is a large sunbed and table.

The generous master suite includes a bedroom featuring a sofa and a desk each of which is located next to floor-to-ceiling windows and under a transverse skylight. The master stateroom also features a walk-in closet and an impressive nearly full-beam head.
Guests are comfortably accommodated in the lower deck across four guest staterooms, including two doubles at the rear and two twins amidships. However, six different layout options for the lower deck have been developed, several of which minimise the number of cabins to maximise space.
A crew of four is also accommodated onboard in the dedicated crew-quarters located at the front of the yacht.

Depending on engine choice, the Monte Carlo 96 reaches a top end of 27 knots.
