Motorboat & Yachting: Cannes Yachting Festival in September will see the launch of the new Monte Carlo Yachts 80 which will slot in between the 76 and 86 when it hits the water in the autumn.
The boat yard is using Nuvolari Lenard design house to carve out a familiar Monte Carlo Yacht shape on an 80ft canvas with typical styling points like the feature windows in the topsides, round ports, stern “eyebrow” over the windscreen and a Portuguese bridge.
The flybridge reaches right back over the cockpit and is protected by a sleek hardtop. There is the option to have a hot tub up here as well as more regular amenities like sun pads, dining space and a comprehensive bar and cooking area.
Emphasis on the main deck has been on getting as much light into the saloon as possible through the use of floor-to-ceiling windows but this is bolstered by light woods and materials, including bleached oak flooring throughout the décor.
Details on exact cabin layouts are yet to be revealed but we do know that there will be a sumptuous, full-beam master cabin with a typically spacious ensuite and likely a similarly smart VIP ensuite in the bow.
