Beneteau plans to have the new hardtop 37 at Southampton

Feast your eyes on the hardtop version of Beneteau’s new Monte Carlo 37.

The boat will be touring the autumn boat shows later in the year, including Cannes, La Rochelle and Southampton.

Not much more is known at present. Beneteau declined to say how much the new boat would cost.

What is clear though it that Beneteau has raised the angle and height of the forward windscreen to gain extra headroom under the hardtop.

Meanwhile, you can see the exclusive first test of the open version of the 37 in next month’s MBM, out 15 March.
