Monte Carlo Yachts honoured for its achievements in the nautical sector

Monte Carlo Yachts (MCY) has received a ‘100 Italian Excellences’ award for its achievements in the nautical sector.

The award is given each year to individuals, companies and institutions that have distinguished themselves for initiative, ability, research, competence and innovation across all aspects of society – from medical and scientific disciplines to revolutionary startups and artisanal manufacturers.

The awards ceremony took place recently in the Sala della Lupa of Palazzo Montecitorio, which houses Parliament in Rome.

“On the year of our 10th anniversary, we are honoured to receive the ‘100 Italian Excellences’ award here in Italy, our home,” said Fabrizio Iarrera, MCY managing director. “This award recognises Monte Carlo Yachts’ achievements over the past decade, and we are proud to represent Made in Italy values and excellent around the globe.”

Monte Carlo Yachts will now be featured in a namesake celebratory book by Italian publisher Riccardo dell’Anna.

The ‘100 Italian Excellences’ recognition is the latest of a long list of awards received by the Italian yard. In 2018, the company won Best Flybridge Yacht (MCY 96) at the Asia Boating Awards, and Best International Motor Yacht (MCY 96) at the Christofle Yacht Style Awards.

Monte Carlo Yachts is also a finalist for awards in four categories at the 2019 Boat International Design & Innovation Awards. The winners will be unveiled during the Superyacht Design Symposium in Cortina, Italy in January 2019.
