Once again, Monte Carlo Yachts has been recognized with a prestigious acknowledgement for its product design and development. The MCY 96, presented to the public at the 40th edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival after its exclusive summer unveiling in Venice, won the "Most Achieved" award category in the 80’-125’ segment at the World Yacht Trophies organized by Yachts France magazine.
During the award ceremony that took place on September 16 at the Carlton Hotel’s beachfront, more than 1.000 guests came together to celebrate the best of the luxury boating industry. For the occasion, the nominated boats were moved from the boat show to the Croisette for the highly anticipated Yacht Parade. An orchestra and dance troupe provided the evening’s entertainment as guests said farewell to the 40th edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival.
The World Yacht Trophies panel comprised of industry experts, captains and journalists that assigned the "Most Achieved Trophy" to the MCY 96, announced the award with the following statement, "Seventh yacht produced by the MCY shipyard, the 96 is the result of an excellent work between the design team Nuvolari & Lenard with the internal engineering. The quality is always very present".
“This World Yacht Trophy for the new MCY 96 is wonderful news” says 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 World Yachts Trophies are one of the most important recognitions in the industry, we are delighted that the new MCY 96 was awarded with this top honour" said Federico Peruccio, Marketing and Communications Manager of Monte Carlo Yachts.
"The MCY 96 is a stunning craft and the outstanding response of the market brings us great satisfaction." The MCY 96 was officially presented during the Cannes Yacht Festival along the entire MCY collection and will be also on show at the Monaco Yacht Show (September 27-30).
