The world-renowned film director Steven Spielberg and Carlos Slim, one of the world’s wealthiest people, are just a few of the notable celebrities that have been known to commission yachts by design team Nuvolari & Lenard, a firm with more than 20 years of experience in designing luxury superyachts. With their collaboration on the latest MCY 80 (that’s short for Monte Carlo Yachts), including an option for fully customised interiors, you can now design your own superyacht in the same style that celebrities enjoy — if you happen to have a few million euros lying around, that is.
Luxury yacht dealers Asia Yachting have brought MCY 80, the newest model in the MCY collection, to Hong Kong and Asia, following its launch in July 2016 and at the Cannes Yachting Festival, where it snagged the Best Layout design award. The snazzy, 80-foot yacht offers its owner pure luxury, with materials sourced from the pinnacle of high-end brands. Signature features of the MCY brand include an entertainment foredeck, Portuguese bridge, large full-size windows to let in natural light to the saloon and cabins, and a flybridge that can be equipped with a Jacuzzi, bar, and/or sunbathing lounges.
Smooth exterior lines and shaped bulwarks give the yacht a modern, contemporary look, while brushed and beached floorings create a sense of comfort and spaciousness on-deck and in the main salon. The luxuriously appointed salon connects directly to the sundeck, allowing for gatherings to spill effortlessly from indoors to outdoors, with precious leather and stone accenting the main furnishings.
Peek below deck into the master cabin, and you’ll find every inch covered in luxury fabrics from designers such as Hermès and Armani Casa. Of course, all aspects of the yacht are completely customisable, from the floorings to the fabrics down to the very sockets in the cabins, so you can have the superyacht you’ve always dreamed of.
All of this comes at a pretty penny, with the asking price for the MCY 80 closing in at 5.6 million euros. For those with an impulse to take to the sea with a smaller — yet still significant — budget, Asia Yachting also deals with a range of smaller jet boats and speedboats to take out on the open waters. For the rest of us, we can only dream of sleeping in Hermès bedsheets aboard a multimillion-dollar yacht.
