Monte Carlo Yachts takes home the prestigious World Superyacht Award with a strong showing of its 32-meter flagship in the Semi-Displacement or Planing motor yachts – 30m to 33.9m – category.
Three MCY 105s – the Botti, Serendipity and Dolce Vita – represented Monte Carlo Yachts at the twelfth edition of the Boat International World Superyacht Awards in the Semi-Displacement or Planing motor yachts – 30m to 33.9m – category and vied for top honours against four other boats, but it was Botti that won the day and took home the award.
Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts declared – “We couldn’t be happier to win this award as we faced some stiff competition in the category. To be picked by the exclusive panel of judges of the World Superyacht Awards, combined with how positively the MCY 105 was received by our customers, demonstrates once again that we are taking the product in the right direction.”
For twelve years, the World Superyacht Awards have recognised the best of the best from ingenuity and innovation, to design and engineering, rewarding winners with the coveted Neptune trophy, a symbol for paramount excellence in superyacht build and designing. The 2017 World Superyacht Awards took place on Saturday, May 13 in Florence and brought together owners and industry leaders to recognise and celebrate the finest superyachts launched throughout 2016. “The Boat International World Superyacht Awards are amongst the most important recognitions in the industry, and we’re both proud and thrilled that the MCY 105 was awarded with this top honour,” said Federico Peruccio, Marketing Manager of Monte Carlo Yachts. “Botti is a stunning craft that was lovingly built and customised according to her owner’s wishes. We’re sure that this award will bring great satisfaction to him as well.
Referring to the MCY 105 Botti, the jury panel commented: “Her elegant exterior design permits a large bimini-covered sundeck with dining and lounging and a second dining area on the main deck aft, while the design makes use of the foredeck as a further lounging space and cinema. A sizeable bathing platform adds to the appeal. Inside, the judges admired the clean, practical lines and subdued decorative scheme. The technical spaces were considered well-constructed, especially the engine room that houses twin MTU diesels and practical gyro-stabilisers that afford low speed stability.” The MCY 105 was first presented to the public at the Cannes Yacht Festival in 2015. At 32 meters, this flagship yacht is the largest in the collection to date, and its unveiling celebrated Monte Carlo Yacht’s 5th year anniversary with a boat that is the most tangible exemplification of the company’s vision and the best expression of Monte Carlo Yacht’s iconic, timeless style and the naval allure of the MCY collection. The MCY 105 has received a number of honours and awards since its launch, including the Best of the Best recognition by Robb Report both in the United States and Asia earlier this year, the Most Innovative Yacht Trophy at the Cannes Boat Show in 2015, the Golden A Design Award in the Yacht and Marine Vessels category in 2016, and the Most Innovative Award in its category at the Invictus Yachts Trophies in Cannes in 2016.

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.
