Monte Carlo 6 yacht tour: This designer yacht is an aft-galley pioneer

It’s been six years since Beneteau launched the Monte Carlo 6 and its stylish and innovative interior is still something of a benchmark.

In this video, filmed at Beneteau’s Port Ginesta sea trial base near Barcelona, Nick takes us on board this classy cruiser, which was designed to provide a bridge between Beneteau’s mass-market models and its Monte Carlo superyachts.

The first thing that jumps out at you when you step on board is how seamlessly the cockpit flows into the saloon, thanks to the folding doors, which are hardly noticeable when fully open.

The position of the galley at the aft of the cockpit was an innovative choice in 2015, but these days it’s the default for a boat of this size.

VIDEO: Monte Carlo 6 review

Packed to the gunwhales with mouth watering details, the Monte Carlo 6 offers something truly different if you are looking

Azimut 60 review: Serious wow factor sets this Italian flybridge apart from tough competition


One benefit of this is that you can quickly serve food and drinks to the cockpit and flybridge, but it also frees up the entire lower deck for accommodation.

Speaking of which, the three-cabin layout includes scissor-berths in the forward VIP and a day heads that can also double up as the en-suite for the third cabin.

Developed in collaboration with superyacht supremos Nuvolari Lenard and Andreani Design, the Monte Carlo 6 is full of classy flourishes, such as the circular portholes that add a certain retro charm.

Enjoy the tour…

Regal 42 FXO first look: Outboard-powered flybridge is a sign of the times

Only a handful of years ago if a budding boat designer had suggested committing company capital to a 42ft flybridge cruiser with three 425hp 5.6-litre V8 outboards on the back they would have been laughed out of the design office and asked politely to keep on walking. Triple outboards deliver serious punch and the ability to anchor in shallow water close to the beachIn the current climate, however, where outboards are king, this proposition doesn’t seem quite so silly. How many flybridges are there on the market that you can beach? And how many can you name that are able to crack 40 knots? So maybe Regal is onto something with the 42 FXO.

Triple outboards deliver serious punch and the ability to anchor in shallow water close to the beach

In the current climate, however, where outboards are king, this proposition doesn’t seem quite so silly. How many flybridges are there on the market that you can beach?

And how many can you name that are able to crack 40 knots? So maybe Regal is onto something with the 42 FXO.

At heart it’s a handsome, well designed 42ft flybridge with a decent pair of cabins, a deep practical cockpit and a comfortable top deck, albeit one that’s on the small side.

Azimut Verve 47: Outboard powered cruiser will thrive on both sides of the Atlantic

Galeon 400 Fly review: This fold-out flybridge is more than a one-trick pony


Triple petrol V8 outboards aren’t what you’d call the typical powertrain for a boat of this style but ignore the damage done at the fuel berth for a minute and think about the upsides.

The engines are simple to maintain and easy to get to. The space on board where ordinarily there would be a pair of diesel engines is now a huge dry storage void, large enough to swallow mountains of cruising gear.

And when other flybridges are preoccupied with anchoring in enough depth to protect their stern gear, the Regal 42 FXO can head into the shallows and even stick its bow on the beach.

It’s not a cheap boat but then Regal is usually quite generous with its standard spec and it’s safe to say that you will have exclusivity on your side.

Regal 42 FXO specifications

LOA: 42ft 0in (12.8m)
Beam: 13ft 0in (3.96m)
Engines: Triple Yamaha 425hp outboards
Top speed: 43 knots
Price from: £900,176 (inc. VAT)
