At the US winter shows, the boating industry puts its best foot forward. Between Miami and Palm Beach, the region hosts no fewer than five major boat shows. The Yacht & Brokerage Show on Miami Beach and the Miami International Boat Show, and related Strictly Sail, run February 14 to 18. These three shows mark the debut of dozens of new models and showcase hundreds of craft, from small center consoles to megayachts.
We first saw this refreshingly innovative flybridge yacht in Cannes in 2010, where Monte Carlo Yachts made its world debut with the first MCY 76, Georgia. Built in Italy, this brand belongs to Groupe Beneteau, a French company with deep roots in the US market.
The MCY 70, the third model in the Monte Carlo Yachts range, has all the stylistic elements Nuvolari-Leonard gave the line, including a high, flared bow and harmonious lines. A sliding door folds to allow easy transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. A central passage leads to a comfortable lounge area equipped with armchairs and tables.
