MCY 105 Awarded at the World Superyacht Awards 2017
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.
