Having its world premiere during the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 6 to 11, the MCY 80 from Monte Carlo Yachts aims to be the next visionary model that combines stylistic design with functionality. Before that, though, it’ll also pass through a series of previews for clients and the press in Montfalcone in July. This is the sixth yacht in the collection and positions itself in between the award winning MCY 76 and MCY 86.

“With Monte Carlo Yachts we always strive for maximum space and comfort on board, but we never forget we’re not building a villa, but a boat,” noted designers Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard, “The MCY 80 is a great yacht, agile and sleek. While designing it, we were inspired by ideas of flair and finesse, and you can see how that transferred from the concept sketches to the real thing”. Both head the world-famous Nuvolari Lenard design studio that has designed the full collection, and have studied and introduced design features and materials extensively used previously only on mega yachts.


All of that translates over to the yacht itself, which boasts of being the third largest yacht in the collection at 24 meters, with smooth exterior lines and shaped bulwarks enhancing the level of light and space across the main deck. Its curvy modern look is just the right touch without being too sharp or minimalistic. The flybridge, which can be equipped with a Jacuzzi, large bar area and sunbathing chaise lounge to create a simultaneously luxurious and intimate exterior space.


As for its interiors, the spaciousness is immediately evident upon boarding, with the saloon and cabins flooded by natural light. The brushed and bleached oak floorings found throughout set an elegant ambiance that is further enhanced by precious leather and stone features. Furnishing choices include tasteful elements such as the Hermes, Armani Casa, and Minotti.


“We’re very proud of the new MCY 80, which further completes the MCY collection and brings additional choices to our customers,” says Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts. “This is the sixth yacht in as many years, a result that speaks of the company’s capacity to invest in product and development whilst always aiming for boats incorporating beautiful aesthetics and nautical performance. The MCY 80 embodies these concepts and takes the signature naval allure of the range to the next level”, continues Mrs Demaria.
