According to reviewer Zuzana Prochazka, the Monte Carol MC4 isn’t just designed for modern entertaining; it’s also designed for modern performance. This boat runs on Volvo Penta IPS pod drives, which have proven superior to traditional inboards in many ways. In fact, this 45’3″ long, 17’10″ wide, 26,499 pound boat hits 30 knots and cruises in the low 20 knot range while burning just 28 or 29 GPH. And even though Zuzana didn't move it from the dock at Fort Lauderdale, we have confidence in these numbers because another one of our reviewers, Gary Reich, ran this boat in Annapolis, Maryland, shortly before the show.
Motor yachts enjoy a level of luxury, size, and status that rank you above the common captain. But, when does a boat qualify as a true motor yacht? A motor yacht means an overall length of about 40 to 90 feet. And unlike smaller boats, motor yachts are designed to stay on the water for days, even weeks, at a time. They're equipped with private cabins and heads, full galleys, and the systems required for extended stays onboard as well as serious navigation. Social spaces are emphasized, too, making motor yachts ideal platforms for entertaining while adventuring from one distant port to the next.
