MONTE CARLO YACHTS’ MCY 76, the third yacht in the next generation MCY line, has been presented at Italy’s Portopiccolo in the Gulf of Trieste, alongside the MCY 70 and MCY 66. These three new models for 2019 will also be on display at the boat shows in Cannes (September 10-15) and Genoa (September 19-24).
The new MCY 76 is the next embodiment of Monte Carlo Yachts’ first ever yacht, and stands for the company’s ongoing, organic evolution, which seeks to maintain authentic, elegant and timeless appeal while improving and innovating its core characteristics and defining traits.
“MCY 76 is where it all began over 10 years ago,” says Fabrizio Iarrera, Managing Director of Monte Carlo Yachts. “Today, we present its new evolution, thanking all the customers that over the years have made an MCY their own. Each MCY is built around the individual, and each is as unique as its owner.”
At about 23 metres, the new MCY 76 offers increased, unique customisation opportunities in its size category, a trait shared with the MCY 70 and MCY 66, alongside wider windows that provide greater exposure to natural light and a closer connection with the sea. The exterior lines of the new MCY 76 are sleeker than ever and are inspired by larger units in the MCY collection.
The boat’s designers Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard agree that the new MCY 76 is the natural evolution of the very first yacht they designed with the yard over a decade ago. “We have worked on many projects since then, and each of them is recognisably an MCY while having its own distinct personality and allure,” says Lenard. “Going back to the MCY 76 has been like coming home, in a way, and finding it more beautiful than ever before.”
Like the new MCY 70 and MCY 66, the MCY 76 features larger-than-ever interior living spaces, enhanced exposure to natural light, and unprecedented custom layout configurations. Increased privacy, extreme comfort and personalisation are key to the new MCY 76. The presence of multiple living spaces on the main deck enables individuals to relax on the comfortable sofas and armchairs, or dine at the spacious Carrara marble table. A fully equipped galley naturally integrated into the saloon layout has been designed to fulfil the owner’s desires.
The interiors are highlighted by three-dimensional decor elements combined with elegant and sophisticated pairing of fabrics and wood panels. Pierre Frey, Hermès and Rubelli textiles are only a few of the wide range of high quality materials chosen by the customer to furnish the MCY 76. White and grey pickled oak woods combined with lacquered and reflective details enrich the elegant interior design from the main deck all the way through the lobby and the interior of each of the four cabins.
