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. Judging from the ebullience with which Monte Carlo’s employees described the line to me last night, I’d say they’re pretty sure they’re sitting on a winner.
The MC5 launched into her sure-to-be glamorous life last night.
