During the award ceremony at the Carlton Hotel’s beachfront, more than 1,000 guests came together to celebrate. For the occasion, the nominated boats were moved from the boat show to the Croisette for the highly anticipated Yacht Parade.
The World Yacht Trophies panel comprised of industry experts, captains and journalists that assigned the "Most Achieved Trophy" to the MCY 96. They announced the award: “Seventh yacht produced by the MCY shipyard, the 96 is the result of an excellent work between the design team Nuvolari and Lenard with the internal engineering. The quality is always very present.”
“This World Yacht Trophy for the new MCY 96 is wonderful news” said Carla Demaria, President of Monte Carlo Yachts. “The boat received a very warm welcome at its private showing in Venice, and it’s wonderful to see that confirmed here in Cannes.”
“We are very proud of the MCY 96, which in many ways opens new possibilities for the MCY range.”
The "Most Achieved Trophy" will complete the collection crown of awards received by the shipyard in the recent years. The MCY 70, MCY 76, MCY 80 and MCY105 have all been recognised by the Trophies in the past.
The MCY 96 was officially presented during the Cannes Yacht Festival along the entire MCY collection and is on show at the Monaco Yacht Show on September 27-30.
