Beneteau Monte Carlo 5 (2014-)

2 x 435-hp Volvo Penta IPS 600

Brief Summary

Clearly the new Monte Carlo 5 was inspired by the hatchet bows of several superyachts launched the last five years or so and the plumb bows and angular high-freeboard shapes of Wally yachts. But Groupe Beneteau has done them both one better in our opinion and produced what could be a new trend in mid-size cruising powerboats. This three-stateroom, two-head cruiser with flying bridge is powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS500s and has details and amenities intended to appeal to veteran boaters looking to move both up and down.
