Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts, commented: "We couldn't be happier to win this award as we faced some stiff competition in the category. To be picked by the exclusive panel of judges of the World Superyacht Awards, combined with how positively the MCY 105 was received by our customers, demonstrates once again that we are taking the product in the right direction."
The 2017 World Superyacht Awards took place on Saturday, May 13 in Florence and brought together owners and industry leaders to recognise and celebrate the finest superyachts launched throughout 2016.
Federico Peruccio, Marketing Manager of Monte Carlo Yachts, said: “The Boat International World Superyacht Awards are amongst the most important recognitions in the industry, and we’re both proud and thrilled that the MCY 105 was awarded this top honour. Botti is a stunning craft that was lovingly built and customised according to her owner’s wishes. We’re sure that this award will bring great satisfaction to him as well.”
Referring to the MCY 105 Botti, the jury panel commented: “Her elegant exterior design permits a large bimini-covered sundeck with dining and lounging and a second dining area on the main deck aft, while the design makes use of the foredeck as a further lounging space and cinema.
“A sizeable bathing platform adds to the appeal. Inside, the judges admired the clean, practical lines and subdued decorative scheme. The technical spaces were considered well-constructed, especially the engine room that houses twin MTU diesels and practical gyro-stabilisers that afford low speed stability.”
The MCY 105 was first presented to the public at the Cannes Yacht Festival in 2015. The 32m flagship yacht is the largest in the collection to date. The MCY 105 has received a number of honours and awards since its launch, including the Best of the Best recognition by Robb Report both in the United States and Asia earlier this year, the Most Innovative Yacht Trophy at the Cannes Boat Show in 2015, the Golden A Design Award in the Yacht and Marine Vessels category in 2016, and the Most Innovative Award in its category at the Invictus Yachts Trophies in Cannes in 2016.
