Boat Show 2008 - New Beneteau Monte Carlo from BJ Marine

30th November -0001
Bénéteau’s new open sports boat, the Monte Carlo, offers extra stability as well as classic Italian designer looks. The former is thanks to its forward facing knuckles which separate the water streams from the hull and stop them re-adhering to it, thereby slowing the boat down. The result, says designer Pierangelo Andreani, is improved stability.
He has also introduced an air intake beneath the hull to create a cushion of air and this again leads to a reduction in friction and fuel consumption. The boat has a solid roof rather than a curtain or canvas cover, making it suitable for the Irish climate. Bénéteau’s Irish distributor is BJ Marine.
