Headed down to the Admiral Marina & Leisure Club in Port Dickson on Merdeka Day for the Simpson Marine Merdeka Yacht Fiesta 2015. The event was a private viewing and cruise for invited guests featuring the many yachts for sale by Simpson Marine and the star attraction – the new Monte Carlo Yacht 70 (MCY70).

Monte Carlo Yachts 70

The star of the show was undoubtedly the new Monte Carlo Yachts 70, with stylistic features and technology that create a new benchmark for luxury.

The MCY 70 features an aft deck and a main saloon that are on the same level, rare for a vessel of this size, creating a satisfying continuity. A sliding door that links the cockpit and the lounge area of the saloon extends this integrated feel, as does the galley’s location near the yacht’s wheelhouse.

The model’s advanced keel structure results in a solid, but light, shell that allows owners to take to the sea in style and safety, while an auto-trim system helps to reduce fuel consumption on board. The MCY 70 is also easy to handle and manoeuvre, thanks to a POD propulsion system featuring a multi directional joystick.

As with all yachts in the range, MCY’s innovative manufacturing process ensures that the final product is of the very highest quality and offers owners a high degree of customisation.
