Monte Carlo Debuts the MC5

Last night Monte Carlo debuted their all-new MC5 stateside with the help of racecar driver Townsend Bell and a whole lot of champagne. The party was, as expected, populated by all of the beautiful people, as well as a handful of marine journalists. The MC5 is the smallest Monte Carlo yet, with an LOA just under 50 feet. She is the first in a line of smaller Monte Carlos, including her sistership the MC5S (an express version of last night’s boat) and the even smaller MC4.
