MC-5-EDIT

Pod drives with joystick steering, a spacious and well-equipped galley, power everything and a roomy and comfortable flybridge are just a handful of things we love about the Monte Carlo 5, a Mediterranean-inspired motor yacht from the folks at Groupe Beneteau.

Sporting a three-stateroom layout with two enclosed head/showers, an expansive main saloon with adjoining aft cockpit, a roomy and well-appointed flybridge and Volvo Penta IPS pod drives with joystick controls, the Monte Carlo 5 oozes luxury.

Come aboard for a casual video tour with Soundings senior editor Gary Reich as he highlights eight of the Monte Carlo 5’s top features.
