Following its official launch in recent days at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Beneteau’s new Monte Carlo 52 makes its UK debut at the Southampton International Boat Show this week.
And Irish Beneteau distributors BJ Marine are on hand to show prospective buyers around the elegant, luxurious and contemporary yet spacious and bright design that ushers in Beneteau’s new ‘Smart Luxury’ generation of high-end cruisers.
The 16m Monte Carlo 52 boats a world-class design from Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard (exterior line) and Andréani Design (interior accomodation), with a V-hull designed in partnership with MICAD.
BJ Marine general manager James Kirwan got his first look at the Monte Carlo 52 this past summer, and even beforehand was convinced that “its combination of style and stability makes it ideal for Irish boaters at home or further afield”.
The dealers are part of what they describe as a Beneteau “spectacular” at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show, which continues through to this Sunday 22 September.

Beneteau’s new Monte Carlo 52 will have its official launch in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
But the French marque has already offered a taste of what to expect from the new ‘Smart Luxury’ generation of Monte Carlo motor yachts.
The French-built “elegant contemporary cruiser” is over 16 metres long with a 4.6 metre beam and “boasts enhanced spaces, light and comfort” in its world-class design — courtesy of Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard (exterior line) and Andréani Design (interior accomodation), with a V-hull designed in partnership with MICAD.
Beneteau adds: “The Monte Carlo 52 is an exclusive motor yacht, yet her value for money outstrips similar luxury cruisers on the market.”
The Monte Carlo 52 will be available for exclusive trials this summer on the Mediterranean; at Beneteau’s new base in Port Ginesta, near Barcelona; and also visible at dealers such as BJ Marine, Ireland’s Beneteau distributors.
James Kirwan, general manager of BJ Marine, says the announcement has been “eagerly awaited”.
“It really completes the inboard motor boat offering from Beneteau, alongside the Swift Trawler and Gran Turismo ranges”
Kirwan says BJ Marine will experience the Monte Carlo 52 first-hand in a fortnight’s time — and notes that a number of clients have already expressed interested.
“Its combination of style and stability makes it ideal for Irish boaters at home or further afield,” he adds.
