Spanish design studio Barracuda Yacht Design has revealed designs for a 30.6 metre Monte Fino model, named the MF100.
Set to be built at the yard’s facilities in Taiwan, the yacht has been designed to be “uncomplicated”, with Monte Fino approaching the designer to put a fresh signature of its new line of yachts.
Alongside the 31 metre edition, the range is set to include an entry-level 27 metre model and a flagship 35 metre model.
The designs have been born from “intensive customer research", according to Barracuda Yacht Design. US dealer John Olson was able to contribute significantly to the development of the model range, resulting in a “market-friendly” concept with various customisation options.
Owners can choose between a modern-looking “long window” design or shorter, rectangular windows for a more classic look and feel.
Elsewhere, the MF 100 can be configured with an enclosed bridge on the upper deck or a raised pilothouse.
The model has a four-cabin layout with the standard configuration comprising a large master on the lower deck forward, two doubles just aft and a third double amidships. There is also the option of a five-cabin layout, which sacrifices some space to create two pairs of cabins immediately aft of the master.
The yacht has been envisioned with a beam of seven metres, a draft of 1.9 metres and a maximum speed between 20 and 24 knots, powered by twin engines.
Historically, US-headquartered Monte Fino Yachts has built custom and semi-custom yachts, and this marks one of its first ventures into production models at this size. The last yacht that the yard built above 27 metres was BW, which was delivered in 2010.
