THE NEW MCY 96: PURE OCEAN PLEASURE
Monte Carlo Yachts announces its new 30-meter, the latest expression of the renowned MCY design and identity
DÜSSELDORF, 22 JANUARY, 2017. Monte Carlo Yachts has announced the development of the new MCY 96, an almost 30 meter yacht that both further develops the MCY “Future Classic” design philosophy and technical specifications and boosts the company’s collection through a unique vessel with superyacht scope and defining traits.
The new MCY 96 has been designed according to the highest standards on the market and complies with RINA Pleasure or RINA Charter Class certifications. Upon request, the new model can also be certified according to CE-A category standards to be utilized as a pleasure boat or according to MCA MGN 280. The possibility to choose the preferred type of certification represents a quite unique feature and a highly significant added value for the owner.
Following the success of the award-winning MCY 105, the MCY 96 enters the MCY collection as the result of Monte Carlo Yachts’ prominent and continued investments in the superyacht category, and will be followed by new models in the next future.
“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 great international success and global appeal of the MCY 105 has guided us in developing the MCY 96, which will set new standards and mark a new era of growth in the superyacht segment for Monte Carlo Yachts.”
Fabrizio Iarrera, Managing Director of Monte Carlo Yachts, adds “Even if still not officially presented to the public, the MCY 96 is proving to be a highly appreciated yacht by our owners worldwide. The first three units have been already sold and this makes us proud and confident that the new model will be a great hit, following its official presentation next summer.”
The design of the MCY 96 was once again entrusted to Nuvolari Lenard. The firm’s development of the MCY collection’s “Future Classic” award-winning design philosophy shines throughout every nuance and detail of Monte Carlo Yacht’s and maximizes key concepts and contents to achieve unprecedented results in its category.
The yacht stands out for its smooth lines, high bow and deceptively low profile that confer its external profile a timeless, contemporary allure that is the natural evolution of the iconic MCY lines while keeping a coherent consistency with the rest of the collection.
“The MCY 96 is the seventh yacht in the collection that we have worked on together with Monte Carlo Yachts,” say Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard, designers. “The new model is unmistakably a MCY in its visual appeal, the incredible exterior and interior spaciousness, and the total customisation options available for owners, but it is also unique in its personality and details. We are very proud of how the MCY collection is constantly evolving whilst staying true to itself.
Monte Carlo Yachts will present the new MCY 96 at an exclusive, invitation-only event in July before showcasing it at the Cannes, Monaco and Genova yachting festivals.
On January 13th 2017, leading luxury yacht dealer Asia Yachting, along with prestigious Italian luxury yacht brand Monte Carlo Yachts (MCY) introduced the MCY 80 to Hong Kong and Asia through media sea trial and an evening of cocktails and canapes at the prestigious Aberdeen Marina Club. The MCY 80 is the 6th and newest model in the MCY collection. The yacht was revealed in Trieste in July 2016, and earned the “Best Layout” award at the Cannes Yachting Festival for yachts between 80ft. and 120ft. in September 2016 shortly after the debut.

The MCY 105 catches the eyes of the American public and receives the 2016 BEST OF THE BEST AWARD by Robb Report
Monte Carlo Yachts’ flagship was awarded in the prestigious Wings & Water Category (yachts from 100 to 195 feet) at the 57th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Monte Carlo Yachts’ flagship, the MCY 105, has been celebrated by the American public during its official American Premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show where more than 400 people attended the exclusive cocktail prepared for the occasion. The MCY 105 was also awarded with the prestigious Robb Report BEST OF THE BEST award in the Wings & Water Category (yachts from 100 to 195 feet), a great success for the company as this award-winning 32-meter yacht enters the American market.
Robb Report’s annual Best of the Best awards, the connoisseur’s guide to the world’s finest new automobiles, yachts, hotels, watches, wines, and more. Hand selected by the editors at Robb Report, the awards highlight over 150 Best of the Best award winners with hallmark brands including McLaren, Bottega Veneta, Rolls-Royce, Vacheron Constantin, Chanel, Ermenegildo Zegna, Mandarin Oriental, Hermès, Kiton, Breguet, Bentley, Ducati and Embraer.
This is what Michael Verdon from Robb Report wrote about the winning MCY 105: “Two things in particular distinguish this Italian-made 105-footer: an inventive interior and a short build time. The full-beam master suite is located in the bow – instead of amidships – and measures 484 square feet. That’s the size of a 150-foot yacht’s master suite. Monte Carlo Yachts builds the interior spaces and the hull concurrently, completing the inside as a single, separate module and then inserting it into the hull. The process cuts the build time to less than 6 months, which is half as long as it would take to finish a yacht this size using a traditional construction method.”
At 32 meters, the MCY 105 is the largest in the collection to date, and a most tangible exemplification of both the company’s vision and best expression of Monte Carlo Yacht’s timeless style and the naval allure of the MCY collection. Featuring the MCY collection’s iconic design elements such as a perfect balance of the hull and superstructure, a painstaking attention given to proportions, and an inherent dynamism of the lines coupled with a glowing distribution of light in the interiors, the MCY 105 is elegant and instantly recognisable, and the imposing bulwarks and high bow award the boat with the naval allure so distinctive of the timeless MCY style.
“We’re extremely proud of the MCY 105’s debut in the USA and the Best of the Best award received by Robb Report”, said Carla Demaria, president of Monte Carlo Yachts. “The American continent is a key market for Monte Carlo Yachts, and the excitement around the MCY 105’s American Premiere during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is a clear demonstration that we’re sailing in the right direction.”
To date, the MCY 105 has won a number of international awards, including the prestigious “Most Innovative Yacht” trophy at the Cannes Yachting Festival and the “International Yacht and Aviation” Award for its interior design.
Asia Yachting is proud to be a sponsor of the Hebe Haven 24-hr Charity Dinghy Race held at the Hebe Haven Yacht Club in Sai Kung on November 5 and 6.
To show support toward the event, Asia Yachting displayed the Super Air Nautique G23 on land and the Montery 217BF with the Monterey 238SS on the waters.
The annual event raises money for various charitable organisations, including the Children’s Cancer Foundation, IDEAL, TREATS, Sailability Hong Kong, and Sai Kung District Community Centre.
Asia Yachting’s brokerage department held its second brokerage boat show, this time during the evening at the Aberdeen Boat Club Middle Island facilities on November 3rd and 4th from 4pm to 9pm each day. The event attracted media and boat lovers from all around the Asia Pacific region.
Asia Yachting aims to gather and show the best brokerage yachts available in the market through each brokerage show. On display were 6 yachts ranging from 42ft. to 82ft., including the Princess 42, Azimut 58, Princess 64, Monte Carlo Yachts 65, Horizon 78, and Heysea 82. The venue was decorated with vibrant lighting to show Hong Kong the beauty of yachting during the evening. Accompanied by canapes and drinks, the event received appraisal from both visitors and industry professionals alike.
The Asia Yachting Weekend Brokerage Boat Show earlier in July led to the successful sales of 3 brokerage yachts on display to clients from around the Asia Pacific region.
