MCY 66

Interior spaces, natural light and passenger views are all enhanced on the new MCY 66.

High-end fabrics, natural stone surfaces, Italian leather, copper accents and other touches indicate luxury. What else would one expect from a yacht builder with Monte Carlo in the name (and Nuvolari Lenard helping with the design)? Throw in extensive use of natural light, even belowdecks thanks to expanded portholes and hull windows, and the MCY 66 from Monte Carlo Yachts is a bright, airy, open 66-footer with a modern décor and more of a traditional profile.

Given a day with pleasant conditions, most of the passengers may never see the inside of the yacht. The open but mostly covered cockpit features a transom bench settee with a table and three chairs — six people can easily gather for drinks or an alfresco meal — and forward are twin sun lounges with room for at least two people on each. Couples tanning.

Social activity is very likely to center around the yacht’s highpoint, the flybridge. Up there, a doublewide helm seat, a C-shaped companion settee and an L-shaped dinette aft of the helm will comfortably seat 10 people, who will enjoy 360-degree views under a hardtop with a sunroof. Except to use the head, people may never leave the flybridge.

In the main cabin, the galley and an L-shaped dinette occupy the aft half, which blends seamlessly with the cockpit when the glass doors are completely open. Forward is a C-shaped settee to port, opposite the helm, and an alcove with a cabinet and easy-to-move ottoman-style seats (per owner needs and wants).

Three staterooms are belowdecks, and there is space for crew quarters beneath the cockpit. A forward VIP and a starboard- side guest cabin take care of four passengers. Amidships, spanning the beam, is the master. All three staterooms have an en suite head, with the guest head serving as the day head too.

Twin MAN V-8 diesels — 1,000 or 1,200 hp — can push the yacht to a 30-knot top speed and cruise comfortably at 24 to 26 knots.
