First shots of Monte Carlo on the water

Beneteau has sent MBM photos of its brand new Monte Carlo 37 during its first seatrial

MBM has uploaded to its Flickr site photos of Beneteau’s Monte Carlo 37 during its very first seatrial in December last year.

It was the first time the boat had touched the water, and, as you can see, it looks as though it performed admirably.

The boat was launched with typical Gallic aplomb on the first day of the Collins Stewart London Boat Show, a write-up of which you can see in February’s MBM, out this week.

The boat starts at around £150,000, and will be followed by four other Monte Carlos – a 27, 32, 42 and 45.
