At the Monaco Yacht Show MCC will premier a 60m and a 33m version of their iconic Marco Polo transocean explorer series to specially invited guests. The designs will be unveiled at the MCC stand QP55 in the Parvis Piscine tent.
The 60m concept will be offered in a Diesel Electric Hybrid using the latest Siemens technology, as well as with a conventional propulsion system.
Visitors will be able to discuss both the Marco Polo 60m and 33m versions with MCC chief designer Kasia Milewska and project manager Albrecht Buchner.
The new model of the second 46m Marco Polo currently in build with Cheoy Lee will also be on display for the first time.
For the duration of the show the first Marco Polo (currently for sale) will be anchored at the show, potential clients and brokers can arrange a viewing.
Marco Polo is built for long distance travelling without giving up any of the comfort demanded by island hopping and coastal cruising and in port or at anchor stays. Great emphasis is put on seakeeping, self-sustainability, comfort and safe and cost efficient operation of highly thought out and refined operational systems. A single Caterpillar 3512B main engine delivers 1950 hp, which gives her a cruising speed of 13 knots, with a range of 3.300nm. Her Schottle bow unit and stern thruster makes her a dream to slot in and out of crowded ports.
The yacht features an owner's deck, with bedroom, bathroom and sitting room on the bridge deck, making for ultimate owner's privacy, space and comfort. 4 double/twin en suite cabins are situated on the lower deck, one of which has been arranged as a gym (but is easily converted into a guest cabin). There is a very large salon and dining room on the main deck, as well as a very spacious galley.
