Some DNA signatures, such as rounded hullside windows and high freeboard forward, remain intact. Those rounded windows amidships, however, have increased in size by about 20 percent. Retaining signature traits is a purposeful move by Monte Carlo Yachts, which is taking an automotive-style approach to its designs. Dan Lenard, who helps to lead the Nuvolari Lenard design team that created the MCY 70, uses the analogy of a Porsche 911. He says that while the car is upgraded and enhanced over the years, brand enthusiasts still know a 911 at first glance. Such is the plan for the Monte Carlo Yachts line. Incremental, not radical, changes should ensure an identifiable look along with updated styling.
