MCY 105 American Premiere & Robb Report "Best of the best" Award

14 November 2016

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.
