Based in Monfalcone, northern Italy but with the muscle of leading French Groupe Beneteau behind it, Monte Carlo Yachts has, in little more than a decade, become synonymous with the construction of timeless, luxurious and yet highly advanced motor yachts. With exterior and interiors designed by the Scorzè-based studio Nuvolari Lenard, the award-winning MCY 70 Skylounge, which is making its grand arrival in Hong Kong waters, typifies the blend of classic elegance, luxurious comfort and seaworthiness that’s become synonymous with the brand.
Available in this market through Asia Yachting , the MCY 70 Skylounge measures just over 21 metres from bow to stern, with a maximum beam of almost 5.5 metres, but an emphasis on space maximisation means that within those dimensions it features not only an airy enclosed flybridge lounge – the first of its kind on an Italian-designed yacht – and a main-deck saloon, but also a beautifully appointed owner’s cabin and a versatile lounge area in the bow that can even be transformed into a beach cabana.
As the yacht’s name suggests, a unique feature is its fully enclosed flybridge and helm station, which guarantees comfort and privacy at all times and in all weathers, yet wide windows flood the interior with natural light and offer a 360-degree view of the horizon. To the rear of the flybridge, a sliding door grants convenient access to an aft sunbathing area. Drawing on MCY’s strength for customisation, the stylish main-deck saloon can be configured to the owner’s requirements, with multiple seating possibilities as well as materials of the highest quality, including Italian leather and marble.
Making this the ideal home-from-home afloat, the lower deck is occupied by a bright and spacious owner’s cabin, as well as guest cabins, all of which are ensuite. Sleeping accommodation is available in a variety of layouts and finishes, and can also be equipped with advanced audio-visual systems, and to ensure maximum privacy the owner’s and guest cabins can be accessed by two separate stairways.
Powered by twin 1,300hp MAN diesels, the MCY 70 Skylounge can cruise at speeds up to 22kt and reach a 26kt maximum. Now in Hong Kong, it’s available for viewing by appointment with Asia Yachting .
