For the sixth consecutive year now, Monte Carlo Yachts is presenting a new model.
With the MCY 80, the range is expanding yet again - now ensuring its widespread coverage and niche position in the luxury yacht market.
The genesis of the MCY 80
“Don’t call ours a dream, call it a vision,” says Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts to Yachting Art Magazine. “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,” addes 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".
While discussing the evolution of yacht design, Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard, designers of the MCY range commented on the design concept and inspiration for the MCY 80: “To reach its fullest expression, design cannot be caged and stifled, but at the same time it needs to express a brand's global strategy and essence so that it isn't just an end in itself but a lasting value. The MCY 80 is a great yacht, agile, sleek and elegant, but it is also solid and safe like a boat should be and it fully represents the values and goals set by Monte Carlo Yachts”.
The MCY 80 was presented to a hand-picked selection of guests including top clients and the international press at a private event in Trieste that also featured a special art exhibition on the world history of naval production processes and their developments, honoring past innovations that made Monte Carlo Yacht’s successes, such as the launch of the new MCY 80, possible.
During the event, Monte Carlo Yachts presented the most recent industrial investments in its state-of-the-art shipyard together with the design evolution of its latest model. “Those who were with us for the launch of the MCY 70 in 2012, will discover how, over these few years, we have grown while keeping true to our dream and our vision,” said Carla Demaria. “We have invested a significant amount of resources, to support our growth and create the conditions to keep on growing in the future. The MCY 80 is the latest step in our path of evolution, one we’re very proud of, as we’re proud to present it right here at home in Trieste.”
Presentation of the MCY 80
At 24 meters, the new MCY 80 takes its place on the podium as the third largest yacht in the shipyard's collection and delivers pure cruising pleasure alongside an unparalleled ride and comfort experience.
With smooth exterior lines and shaped bulwarks which enhance the level of light and space across the main deck, the MCY 80 boasts a curvy, modern look without being too sharp or minimalistic. Signature elements include a class-leading entertainment foredeck and Portuguese bridge that no other yacht in this size category can match.
The flybridge, an iconic characteristic of the MCY range, can be equipped with a jacuzzi, large bar area and sunbathing chaise longues to create an exterior hideaway that is as luxurious as it is intimate. Like with the other yachts in the collection, an instant sense of spaciousness both inside and out becomes immediately apparent upon boarding the MCY 80.
The main saloon and the cabins are flooded with natural light and offer lushly appointed and detailed spaces for both social and private moments. The brushed and bleached oak floorings found throughout set an elegant ambiance that is further enhanced by precious leather and stone features.
Design furnishing choices such as the Hermes, Armani Casa and Minotti elements complete an interior that is effortlessly modern and tasteful.
