Our leading idea was to create a boat that was authentic, overcoming certain limitations that have conditioned the yacht sector in the last twenty years,” the two designers said.
“First and foremost its hull and proportions are those of a boat that can truly navigate: we are on a yacht, a real boat!

Pure Ocean Pleasure Comes to Venice. Monte Carlo Yachts Presents the New MCY 96.

Venice and Monte Carlo Yachts have a very special relationship. Here is where it all began for the builder back in 2010 when the MCY range that rocked the yachting world was announced. In 2015, the company returned to present the MCY 105, and today, it will reveal the latest addition to its collection, the MCY 96, at the stunning Island of San Giorgio.

The new MCY 96, a symbol of the company’s vision and strategy for the future, follows on from the success of the award-winning MCY 105, and enters the MCY collection as the result of Monte Carlo Yachts’ significant and continued investments in the superyacht category.

The new MCY 96 represents both continuity and evolution for the MCY collection and the company,” says Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts. “The new MCY 96 is remarkable vessel and, quite uniquely for its size, was designed and built to deliver pure ocean pleasure and extended voyage opportunities.

The MCY 105, Monte Carlo Yachts’ 32 meter flagship, has been awarded with the prestigious Golden A' Design Award in the Yacht & Marine Vessels Design category. The yacht design made by Nuvolari Lenard studio won the category amongst thousands of submissions.
Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard say:

With Monte Carlo Yachts we always strive for maximum space and comfort on board, but we also never forget we’re not building a villa, but a boat. The MCY 105 is the largest in the MCY collection up to date. Elegant and instantly recognizable, it features the imposing bulwarks and high bow that award that naval allure so distinctive of the timeless MCY style. Additionally, the boatyard’s distinctive trait of creating spaces only available on megayacht class boats is particularly evident here.

Venice has added fascination to the event and has underlined, with its unique and unmistakeable features, the fundamental values of the Monte Carlo Yachts project.
First and foremost its very Italian nature and the ability to build bridges between different cultures. Venice is, in fact, a gateway between East and West, between the Mediterranean and continental Europe. It is its genuine sea-going soul that combines so well with the desire of Monte Carlo Yachts to build boats made to really sail. And, to give one more example, the talent of unifying the practical approach of getting things done and the spirit of research and absolute elegance

"Don't call ours a dream, call it a vision," says Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts. "Behind every success story there is always a powerful dream, but we prefer to call it vision. A vision is the art of seeing what it is invisible to others, but to deliver results, the vision needs to be converted into a strategy, and the strategy deployed into a plan of action. 80 is our new goal, that is the MCY 80s campaign claim, and it is a fitting motto for the way Monte Carlo Yachts operates."

It is as simple as this: a dream has been the most powerful driver in our new adventure but our solidity and concrete approach has brought us where we are today," added Fabrizio Iarrera, Managing Director of Monte Carlo Yachts. "When it comes to being concrete we can say that the key figures for 2016 support our claims

The MCY 105: a new era begins for Monte Carlo Yachts

Monte Carlo Yachts has choosen Venice to unveil its latest project: the new MCY 105, a 32-metre yacht that marks a new, important chapter in the history of the Franco-Italian company. Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts said:

The unveiling of the MCY 105 coincides with Monte Carlo Yachts’ fifth Anniversary, a moment marked by important achievements to date, and a turning point, a milestone, for what’s to come. We are back in Venice where it all started to demonstrate that we kept our promises and more. We started from scratch during the global financial crisis with a clear mission, to expand Group Bénéteau’s presence by successfully entering the over 20mt motor yacht sector. Not an easy job. We knew we needed to become a reference in our industry through a simple strategy:
we didn’t want to built luxury yachts, we wanted to built
excellent yachts.
The MCY 105 is the best expression of our vision and the most tangible exemplification to date of this strategy.

The Innovation in a Production Process Award is part of the prestigious new Boat Builder Awards for business achievement, organised jointly by IBI magazine and METS. The awards recognise individual and team success within boat building companies globally across six categories of business achievement. Specifically, the IBI-METS panel found that:

Monte Carlo Yachts’ modular construction system is a game-changer for the industry. Building superstructure, deck and interior in parallel modules, enabling the Italian builder to cut construction times by up to 50%. Ultimately Monte Carlo Yacht’s ability to construct interiors outside of the boat on a grid system not only greatly simplifies the build process, but also encourages more exact levels of finish, enabling much greater levels of customisation-in essence Monte Carlo Yachts has cracked the code of building semi-custom boats on a full scale series production line. Its latest MCY 105 bares testimony to a builder redefining the rules.

Keep on growing

Keep on growing

Fabrizio Iarrera, Managing Director of Monte Carlo Yachts said:

We’ve kept our promise and have grown from a turnover of €3 million in our first year to €58 million; we now employ more than 300 people where we started with a team of just 20. We intend to keep on growing and look forward to the next five years with excitement. We’re considering the Super Yacht category next, which we feel to be the natural evolution of the design and product path we’ve taken.
