Led by a unique collaboration between Beneteau’s design office and the Nuvolari and Lenard duo, the brand renewed the luxury codes in this segment of motor cruisers.
Directly inspired by the luxury world of the Monte Carlo Yachts brand, the Monte Carlo 6S comes with the pleasure of an opening roof, giving her a distinctive sporty style. This sports version of the motor cruiser catches is eye-catching with her attractively flared out hull design, a surprising recess of the side windows in relation to the windshield, and round hull portholes. She features a saloon integrated in the Hard-top – a real private lounge. This exclusive space, with a luxurious lounge and large sun-loungers features a panoramic terrace with a large amount of space that aligns with the sporty line of this model.
Propelled by two 600hp Cummins engines, the MC6S reaches a top speed of 28 knots and has all the torque needed for dynamic acceleration. The Zeus pod system significantly improves the boat’s performance, while delivering a 30% fuel economy, 15% faster cruising speed and a top speed 15% higher than that of a traditional shaft line system.
With this engine type, the interior living spaces offer immense space. Combining interaction and privacy, noble materials and sumptuous finishes, the atmosphere on board is harmonious. The interior boasts an open design oozing with character, in which there is seamless communication between the galley located at the centre of the boat and the huge lounge and central driving station. There is an enormous Owner suite aft, with an en-suite bathroom and a separate toilet providing privacy, all matching in a style specific to the range.
The Monte Carlo range capitalises on the know-how inherited from the French workshops, combined with modern engineering and industrial processes. Beneteau has also invested heavily in its industrial tool, aiming to reduce the emission of pollutants in the atmosphere (VOCs). The recent composite transformation workshop chiefly houses non-emissive transformation processes. This composite transformation technique is called ‘infusion’.
Aside from being environmentally-friendly, the technique also enables the weight of the boat to be controlled precisely. It also offers considerably improved working conditions. The traditional aspect is echoed in the handling of the woodwork. The interior cabinetwork is well-designed in brushed oak and the wood used for the exterior is teak, as per yachting codes and traditions. This model embodies 130 years of expertise.
