Monte Carlo MC105 Yacht a Stunning Example of Maritime Innovation
The name Monte Carlo at once conveys the elegant European playground of the ultra-rich and a classic American car. Now it stands for a stunning example of maritime opulence and innovation, too. Behold the Monte Carlo 105 G. It set sail at the 2015 Cannes Yacht Festival, where it was awarded the most innovative yacht trophy. Surely it managed to turn the head of even the most jaded billionaire. RELATED: See the Xhibitionist Yacht, the Supercar of the Seas
The Monte Carlo 105 G is a 34 yards long, which means it doesn’t stand out for its size. As CNN reports, the Triple Deuce currently under construction will be 728 feet long at a cost of $1.2 billion.
What sets the Monte Carlo 105 G apart is its maximization of interior space. According to The Robb Report, that comes from adapting techniques used in the aviation and automotive worlds.

The master cabin - located on the main deck - features full beam and giant, full-size windows. It’s a split-level space that suggests Manhattan wealth more than maritime practicality with its broad skylight illuminating the king-size bed. The space is a mixture of exotic leathers and bronze.
The master suite’s bathroom, says The Robb Report, features a dividing wall made of fabric to maintain its openness. It also features natural stone from Brazil covering the floor and shower areas. There are also his and her sinks.
The yacht has three other bedroom suites with one as large as master suites usually found on larger yachts. There is also crew sleeping for five.
