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.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
