A Mediterranean power boat play-toy with all the amenities needed for fun family boating under the sun.
French boat building powerhouse Beneteau is still a family owned business after 120 years and today builds some 4500 boats each year. Everything from luxury yachts in their sailing range to powerboats up to 16m. The quality, performance, style and design of all its boats reflect Beneteau’s scale and experience and the Monte Carlo is testament to that.
Clever ideas are apparent from stern to bow. Step onto the teak-covered swim platform to begin your tour. A retractable boarding ladder hides in a locker on the starboard side and a retractable hot and cold shower (with mixer tap) is found under a cap to port. The set-up makes it easy to climb aboard after a swim, have a shower, step through the small gate and enjoy refreshments at the cockpit’s outside saloon. Or maybe you would prefer a siesta on the sunbed to starboard.
Those in a contemplative mood could stare at the stars with an after-dinner drink and think to themselves, “yeah, my boat’s pretty cool”. And if anyone is jealous of how comfortable you are on your sunbed, they can lower the solid wood cockpit table and break out the infill to transform the saloon into a bigger sunbed. With pleasant weather and suitable anchorage, this would make a nice alfresco bed for those who prefer the open air to the cabin. The self-draining cockpit is carpeted as standard and makes a comfortable space. There’s cosy seating for six in the outside saloon, or spacious for four.
