Carla DeMaria (President of Monte Carlo Yachts), Fabrizio Iarrera (Managing Director of Monte Carlo Yachts), Franklin Heng, (Chairman of Asia Yachting), and Irene Heng went on stage to receive the award at the annual Gala Dinner during the Cannes Yachting Festival.


During the award ceremony that took place on September 10 at the Carlton Hotel’s beachfront, almost 500 guests came together to celebrate the best of the luxury boating industry during an evening featuring the highly-anticipated Yacht Parade that customarily marks the end of the Festival. The World Yacht Trophies panel comprised of industry experts and journalists that assigned the “Best Layout” trophy to the MCY 80 announced the award with the following statement, “The newest addition to the MCY collection features noteworthy design by Nuvolari & Lenard that goes a step beyond in luxury and quality. Specifically, the front bridge layout of the MCY is sure to become a reference in the category.” The new 24 m MCY 80 delivers pure cruising pleasure alongside an unparalleled ride and comfort experience for everyone on-board. 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 lounges to create an exterior hideaway that is as luxurious as it is intimate.


Carla Demaria, MCY President, says “We’re very proud of the new MCY 80s achievements in Cannes. The new MCY 80 is the sixth boat in as many years; it is a yacht that embodies our strategy and design philosophy, and takes the signature naval allure of the range to the next level.” Federico Peruccio, MCY Marketing Manager, adds “The whole MCY collection is well-known for offering spaces, layout options and customization possibilities normally found on much larger vessels, the “Best Layout” trophy by World Yacht Trophies recognises this important feature.” The MCY 80 was officially presented to the public during the Cannes Yacht Festival and will be on show also at the Genoa Boat Show, 20-25 September 2016.
