MCY 76 Skylounge: american debut at the 2020 FLIBS
The new MCY 76 Skylounge is presented by Monte Carlo Yachts at the 2020 FLIBS
The MCY 76 Skylounge is a highly customized yacht, designed by Nuvolari Lenard, but with the input of the new yacht’s owners. The couple owned a 76 Monte Carlo for seven years and spent that time listing their priorities for the vessel, refining their desires into the 2021 model. While boasting the Italian shipyard’s sharp eye for aesthetics, the MCY 76 Skylounge is a comfortable yacht; it just happens to be as beautiful as it is practical for pleasurable family cruising and living.
Wide windows mark the yacht’s profile, down to its iconic round hull windows which have also been enlarged to allow more natural light into the full-beam Master stateroom. Wide open spaces on the bow and aft decks, take advantage of the uncovered areas for pure sun worship. Before entering the large, enclosed areas, alfresco dining, entertaining and relaxation amenities can be enjoyed, including an open-air galley on the aft flybridge deck, full dining on the main aft deck and expandable sun pads on the bow.
The interior spaces open to the broad teak decks via large sliding glass doors that offer natural light, privacy or social connection. The aft galley on the main deck facilitates service to the outdoors or spacious salon and dining area, with decorative sliding glass panels, offering just the right amount of separation or engagement between the two adjacent spaces. With no helm on the main deck, the salon is even more spacious, and an elegant steel and wood starboard staircase leads to the sky lounge and upper helm while another set of stairs leads to the four en suite staterooms below.
The amidship master is lavishly decorated with contrasting textures and leathers and the en suite head has bright terrazzo counters and marble floors with self-draining showers. The bow VIP and two bunk staterooms are likewise stylishly decorated with private heads. The modern look is highlighted by neutral colors, high-quality finishes and appliances throughout from the twin beds that electrically combine to doubles and the LED lighted leather header, to the bleached oak floors, handmade furniture and Vitrifrigo freezers and refrigerators.
The helm station in the skylounge is technologically updated with 30” Raymarine screens, DockSense Assisted Docking and navigation controls ergonomically located on the captain’s armrest. Beautifully upholstered in deep green leather, the helm complements other leather trim throughout the yacht, contrasting the beige, taupe and creamy leathers and textures selected to reflect the feel of the natural light.
The skylounge’s retractable sunshade likewise maximizes light with 360-degree views from the frameless windows while maintaining a private sky-high escape where owners and guests can feel at one with the horizon and sea.
The structure is constructed of carbon fiber, making it lightweight, strong and durable.
The swim platform hydraulically descends to facilitate water access and leads to a garage that can store a tender, water toys or become part of the crew quarters. Wide teak steps lead up to the main deck with easy access to the bow, also available through the starboard captain’s door.
Twin Man V12 1550 HP engines (1650 HP optional) power the MCY 76 Skylounge to 30 knots or 24 cruising speeds; the engine room is laid out to accommodate easy access to all mechanical, operational and electrical panels.
The MCY 76 Skylounge, presented by Monte Carlo Yachts for the first time at the 2020 FLIBS, offers the yachting enthusiast the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, even while indoors, through precise design and construction, customizable and built with pride by Monte Carlo in Monfalcone, Italy.
