Monte Carlo 5

The succesfull fusion between Italian design and French maritime architecture.


Clearly the new Monte Carlo 5 was inspired by the hatchet bows of several superyachts launched the last five years or so and the plumb bows and angular high-freeboard shapes of Wally yachts. But Groupe Beneteau has done them both one better in our opinion and produced what could be a new trend in mid-size cruising powerboats.

This three-stateroom, two-head cruiser with flying bridge is powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS500s and has details and amenities intended to appeal to veteran boaters looking to move both up and down. We inspected her in January 2013 at her debut in Dusseldorf, Germany and came back with lots of pictures and some first impressions.

request more information about the Monte Carlo 5, Given the IPS propulsion with joystick, the quantity of joinery work and its fit-and-finish, the quality and taste levels of the fabrics, upholstery and leathers used, the copious use of polished stainless steel all over the boat, the three staterooms below, and the flying bridge -- the MC5 seems to us to be a lot of boat for the money. In fact we can think of many express cruisers, sedans, Down east cruisers, trawlers, and other types of boats that don't offer as much utility and cost more.
