Monte Carlo is a motor yacht in the superyacht category. She was named after the Monte Carlo quarter of Monaco.

History[edit]

Monte Carlo was built by Amels in their Hakvoort shipyard in The Netherlands and launched in 1988. She was designed by Diana Yacht Design BV. She underwent an extensive refit in 1999 (including an interior refit designed by Dee Robinson), and lesser refits in 2004 and 2006.

Monte Carlo currently cruises the Mediterranean Sea in the Summer cruising season, and the Caribbean in the Winter cruising season, crossing the Atlantic Ocean twice each year.
