16.25 meters long and 4.60 meters wide, the Monte Carlo 52 will make its official debut at the next Yachting Festival in September, marking the arrival of the new “smart luxury” generation by Bénéteau.
Carlo Nuvolari & Dan Lenard signed the external lines, while the internal layout is by Andreani Design. The V-shaped hull was created in collaboration with MICAD. The Monte Carlo 52 is larger and wider than the Monte Carlo 5, replacing it in the catalogue. The lines are more contemporary, the profile more slender and the volumes more generous.
Highlights on the main deck are the position of the galley, connected to the cockpit, the large central saloon with 360° windows and the raised pilot’s position, for better visibility when at the helm.
The night deck is dominated by a large owner’s cabin in the middle of the boat to which a bathroom and a walk-in closet are dedicated and which exploits all the maximum beam of the hull. There is also a VIP cabin at the far end of the bow and another a little further aft with adjacent beds. The second bathroom has a double entrance, both from the central hallway and from the VIP cabin.
Aft you can choose between having a fourth cabin for the skipper (with separate bathroom and entrance) or a large technical locker. On the fly, where in addition to the cockpit and dining area there is also a small outdoor galley, can be roofed by a T-Top with the central part in fabric that can be opened.
