The Australian debut of the Monte Carlo MC5 at the Sydney International Boat Show certainly didn’t disappoint. The unique style and impeccable design received a great response, particularly the innovative solutions from the Beneteau group’s industrial experience and the incomparable style of the Italian Monte Carlo Yachts.

After touring the interior and exterior of the MC5, there was little doubt why she was awarded the coveted European Powerboat of the Year 2014 at Dusseldorf Boat Show. David Beck, owner and dealer principal of Sundance Marine said “We couldn’t have been happier with the response to the Monte Carlo and Monte Carlo Yachts range at the show.” The beauty, innovation and originality, plus the attention to detail described by one customer as ‘creating a luxurious life on the water’.

Noted features included stylish leather trims throughout and a clever use of internal space in all areas. Rewards for owners are obvious through the excellent storage proportions across the boat including its full beam master. They all enhance her ability to be used for multiple days away from port. The fly-bridge size comfortably seating 12 around the table also leaves no doubt on the boats entertainment potential.

Sundance Marine is the exclusive distributor for the Monte Carlo range and all signs are pointing to a successful future for the brand in Australia. David Beck confirmed “We also welcome two new owners into the international Monte Carlo family with the sale of a Monte Carlo 4 and a Monte Carlo 5 at the show.” With over 40 Monte Carlo 5’s already produced since it launch just on 18 months ago the MC5 was always likely to make a splash in Australia, as it has and continues to do world wide.

David Beck will also visit Cannes Boat Show in the coming weeks with customers, the full Monte Carlo range will be on display here including the World Premier of the MC5S model. The brand will then continue towards the world premier of the MC6 at the Dusseldorf Boat Show in January 2015.

All in all, Monte Carlo is certainly a name we’ll continue to hear buzzing around marinas in Australia.
