Best of the Best 2016: Yachts | 100 to 195 Feet: Monte Carlo Yachts 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, com-pleting the inside as a single, separate module and then inserting it into the hull. The process cuts the build time to 6 months, which is half as long as it would take to finish a yacht this size using a traditional construction method.
- The hull is a vacuum-infusion-formed monocoque structure, which allows for a more spacious interior because the support system is less voluminous than that of a traditional hull.
- The 105 can achieve a top speed of 27 knots and cruise at 24 knots for about 400 nautical miles.
- The flybridge is 807 square feet, and it’s covered with a carbon-fiber hard top equipped with an electronically controlled sunroof.
- The interior can be fully customized.
